The Charles R Wood Learn to Row Program was created to offer the experience of rowing to interested children entering grades 7 and above. The Learn to Row Program is an opportunity for a child to learn about the sport of rowing through participation. While the majority of time is spent on the water, there is also dry land training and education about boats and equipment. Some impromptu racing and ice cream eating may occur. After the completion of a two week session, a child will have learned what it takes to be a competitive rower.
The Charles R Wood Foundation was created in 1978 by local entrepreneur Charles R Wood founder of Storytown USA, the present day Great Escape Theme Park, the Double H Hole in the Woods Camp for critically ill children and many other endeavors and businesses in the area. The Foundation was established to provide assistance to areas of special need in the region, with an emphasis on children's health care and the arts.
