Camp Details

Junior Rowing Summer Camp Program offers instruction in rowing to boys and girls who have finished 7th grade. ARC teaches young athletes about the sport of rowing through participation in a fun and educational setting. Students will learn water and boat safety, stroke mechanics on the ergometer (rowing machine) and the basic techniques of sweep rowing and sculling. While the majority of time is spent on the water, there is also fitness training on land and education about boats and equipment. Campers learn how to work as a team. Those who would like to continue rowing may join the competitive rowing program.
