Summer Camp

Junior Rowing Summer Camp

Our Junior Rowing Summer Camp Program offers instruction in rowing to boys and girls entering 6th to 12th grade (ages 11 to 18). 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.

2021 Schedule

Camp runs Monday through Friday; hours are 9:00 AM until 12:00 Noon except on Friday when camp ends at 12:30.

On Friday, weather-permitting, parents are invited to come at 11AM and watch. Afterwards, parents and athletes will enjoy lunch with their coaches and other rowers. At that time, ARC staff will be available to answer any questions about the club, the sport, and/or getting involved in our fall rowing programs.
