New Programming in partnership with STEM to Stern
Green Lake Crew is piloting a new program for middle school students in partnership with STEM to Stern and the Wallingford Boys and GIrls Club. We’ve put together a four day camp which will introduce the campers to rowing, water safety, STEM activities and fun. Rowing activities will include introduction to rowing equipment, working as a team learning how to lift the boats in and out of the water safely, the basics of a rowing stroke. Personal Floatation Devices will be worn by all participants on the water. STEM activities will include Chemistry (water quality testing), creating moving toys and learning about the Green Lake ecosystem. Campers will be provided lunch, snacks, t-shirts and hats. The final day there will be a short race followed by a barbecue.
Green Lake Crew is housed at the Green Lake Small Craft Center, a Seattle Parks and Recreation facility. This program is supported by SPR and the Associated Recreation Council. Funding has been granted by the George Pocock Rowing Foundation for this and ongoing fall programming. We are deeply grateful for our partners’ support.
