Raritan Valley Rowing Camp at Rutgers University
- Rutgers University, New Jersey
- Visit Camp Website
Each camper will develop an appreciation for technical aspects of the sport as well as the teamwork involved in making a boat go fast. The program is designed to give each camper individual instruction to learn and improve skills in a relaxed atmosphere. Camper/Staff ratio will not exceed 8-1 and rowing and recreation activities will be closely supervised.
More experienced campers will learn about training, rigging and racing through lectures as well as the constant interaction with our helpful, expert coaching staff. Each camper will be videotaped during the week to help him/her in the learning process.
Individual "one on one" sessions on the rowing ergometers will be conducted to help each student understand and perform the basics of rowing or refine already developed skills. The program will end with a day of races to allow each camper to test their skills against each other.
