Summer Learn to Row Camps

We run six one-week rowing camps throughout the summer. Each Summer Camp runs Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

The program is limited to 27 athletes per week.  Program is open to rising 7th graders and up.  Learn to row and have fun!

Our one week in-depth camp is perfect for learn to row and novice rowers. Our learn to row campers will be introduced to rowing in team boats. Our goal is to have everyone rowing quads and doubles and perhaps the single before the camp is over.  A typical day will include rowing, some video review, and a lunch break followed by another row and learning session. Athletes will be boated with rowers of similar ability.

Camp Schedule:

Monday to Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm

SMOOTH SCULLING 

Smooth Sculling team is open for all youth and masters scullers.  Come as many days a week as you can for as many weeks as you would like.  At dusk, the water turns to glass with the evening warm air. Enjoy a nice steady row.

Some experience on the water is required as the team will be rowing primarily sculling boats.  If you are unsure about registering for this program, ask your coach or email admin@pcrarowing.com. Coaches will help everyone and give coaching when asked.  All scullers will know or learn the traffic pattern rules and follow them accordingly. The program is capped at 40 athletes per session.

Smooth Sculling Team Schedule: 

Monday to Friday 6:00 - 7:45pm
