Rowing is the ultimate team sport! It teaches you about communication, leadership and character. Rowers will learn about time management and dedication so they can have respect for themselves, their teammates, coaches and family. Rowing is a sport that you can do for the rest of your life, it will challenge you physically and mentally. It's an excellent aerobic and anaerobic workout without the risk of many injuries so participants of all ages are welcome! On top of all of this, rowing brings people together for life-long friendships.

This camp is for ages 12-16 years old, athletes of all sizes welcome, no experience necessary. Registrants should bring water in a reusable bottle, a packed lunch and extra weather appropriate clothing. $300/session.

Adult Learn-to-Row

Perhaps you have a son or daughter or friend that rows? Maybe you have been to a regatta or just seen our youth crews on the water as you drive by? Ever wonder what it would be like to row? Rowing is a great way to get and stay in shape at all ages.  Being on the water in a rowing shell  is a lot better than a machine in a gym.  We row in  8-oared shells. You will find out what it is like to be in a crew.  You'll get hands on training by our experienced coaches. Open to Adults ages 21+
