The BTA is delighted to announce that Steve Trew is returning to Bermuda to run another one of his popular summer camps. This will be the 20th Anniversary of Steve running this camp – his first one was in 1998 and was attended by none other than Flora Duffy and Tyler Butterfield.
Quote from last camp: “Best camp EVER”
2018 BTA Summer Junior Camp – 2nd to 6th July
The camp is open to all juniors aged 7 and up (no upper age restriction). The camp will be held at Clearwater Beach and run as a half day camp – from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm each day. The cost for this camp will be $200 for the full five half days. If there are any participants who can’t make the full camp, it will be possible to participate in whatever days you can make at a charge of $40 per day, although to gain the most out of the camp it is preferable for participants to attend the full camp.
There are eligibility criteria for the camp which are set out below, together with a biography for the camp director. Spaces will be limited, and if you would like your child to attend, please complete the attached registration form and return at your earliest convenience. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Camp Eligibility Criteria
The camp will be run by Steve Trew, a well-known triathlon luminary from the UK (bio attached) who has been coming to Bermuda for many years.
To be eligible, each participant must:
- Be at least 7 years old and completed P2 by the camp start date;
• Be able to swim 100 meters in open water without assistance and generally be comfortable in the water;
