Long Beach Sea Scouts

Rob Glidden
August 4 at 2:00pm

LBRA hosts the Long Beach Sea Scouts summer camp, July 28. An introduction to the sport of rowing, the equipment we use, and our rich history as part of the Aquatic Capital of America.

One of these kids just might end up representing the US at the 2028 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles!

Special thanks to Maggie Fellows (SoCal Scullers) as well as Bill Eldon and Dean Saunders for their fantastic volunteer support. Additional mentions to Ellen Kirk and Jack Geortner for their role in making the event happen.
