South Eugene Rowing Club Summer Camp

- Visit Camp Website
South Eugene Rowing Club (SERC) provides all local 8th-12 grade students an opportunity to learn and compete in rowing - an Olympic, Collegiate, and high school level sport. We take anyone willing to show up and work hard - there are no cuts or tryouts. Athletes train at Dexter Lake in the Fall and Spring, and indoors at SEHS during the winter. Teammates create friendships, build life skills, and get in great shape. The team competes in 6 to 8 regattas within Oregon, Washington, and California each year. We offer free trial periods at the start of academic terms, as well as summer camps for new rowers.
Below are a few photos of club activities.
Come out to beautiful Dexter Lake to try a new sport! You will learn skills for competitive rowing while enjoying beautiful summer days on the water. This summer camp is a great introduction to the Eugene based regional club team, South Eugene Rowing Club, serving young adults from all area schools in the south Willamette Valley. It is also a great opportunity to build rewarding bonds and teamwork skills. Rowers who attend either or both weeklong sessions (Session 3 or 4) are eligible to participate in the Green Lake Summer Regatta in Seattle. All campers will receive camp t-shirts along with great summer memories. Camp is open to women and men entering 8th – 12th grade. No previous athletic experience is necessary.
