Chicken Dippers

Chicken Dippers Rowing

The Chicken Dippers Summer Rowing Program is a five week program held every summer at the John Holland Boathouse in Ventnor Heights, NJ.  This is a program designed to introduce our younger rowers, ages 10-14, to the sport of crew.  Our purpose is to teach our “chicken dippers” the basics of rowing, the importance of teamwork and above all, how to have fun with their peers before they enter the rigorous world of high school rowing.  

Chicken Dippers – a nod to the local youth who used to help at the annual Chicken Dinner by dipping the chicken into the special secret sauce before it was cooked
