Middle School Rowing Camps
River City Crew, a non-profit youth rowing program, will be holding sculling camps for younger children this summer in conjunction with our HS Learn-to-Row camps. These one-week camps are designed for beginners and will be held at Robious Landing Park, Monday thru Friday. New MS rowers will learn sculling technique in small, one person boats. Campers will both row and participate in on-land activities. Each session will have a maximum of 16 campers with no more than 8 rowers on the water at any one time. An additional session may be added if required. There will be both on-water and land supervision. All rowers will wear a USCG approved PFD while on the water but swimming ability is required. Rowers should wear casual clothing that can get wet, running-type shoes with socks, caps, sun glasses, bring a water bottle, and wear sunscreen. Snacks and drinks will be provided for participants for breaks. Camps are for rising 6th- and 7th-grade students.
