Train and Race with the Beasts

Sunday, July 2nd to Saturday, July 8th, 2023

Lake Banook, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Dragon Boat East invites enthusiasts of all skill levels to the ninth Annual Dragon Beast Training Camp, held on Lake Banook in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia each summer. 

The weeklong training camp will culminate with competitive racing on Saturday with the third annual Beast Cup, followed by lunch at Boondocks in beautiful Eastern Passage.

Participants will receive International Level coaching during the week with 10 Dragon Boat sessions, one OC6 outrigger session, two individual technical review sessions (including video), and one optional session on Wednesday afternoon.   There will also be optional early morning yoga sessions.  This camp offers athletes the rare opportunity to participate in a focused training camp setting during the season, and to immediately implement fitness and technical advances made during the camp when participants return home. 

Our home base for the camp will be the new Dartmouth Dragon Boat Association clubhouse in Graham's Grove on Lake Banook.
