Stem-to-Stern Learn to Row

The goal of STEM-to-Stern (S2S) is to provide free STEM and rowing opportunities for youth (minimum 11 years of age through 8th graders) who identify as transgender and non-binary, black, indigenous, people of color, individuals with lower socio-economic status and people with disabilities.

Please contact program director, Sara Krizan (skrizan@mendotarowingclub.com), for program access approval.

The Stem-to-Stern (S2S) program begins with a week-long Learn to Row (LTR) camp. Participants will be part of a team learning the basics of rowing in a fun, supportive, and empowering environment which includes daily physical fitness activities both on land on the water and participation in a week-long STEM project led by skilled instructors and chaperones. 

Please read through our swim test guidance prior to the start of camp and let us know if your child will need assistance with learning to swim. 

No prior experience necessary. Space is limited.
