Rowing 101 Camp

Session 1: June 19th - June 23rd, 2023 

Session 2: August 7th -  August 11th, 2023

Times: 9 am - 3 pm (bring a bag lunch)

Cost: $400.00 per session OR $650 for both sessions. You can choose to do one or both sessions. 

Ages: 13-18

Rowing 101 is designed for kids ages 13 - 18 who have never rowed and think that they might like to try something new. The sport of rowing not only builds athleticism in a fun environment, but also determination, focus, leadership, and teamwork.

Coaches work closely with rowers on ergometers, in WYRA’s indoor rowing tanks, and on the water in our 60’ racing shells. This is a great opportunity to decide if crew is for you! Unfortunately the restaurant that used to provide us with lunches has closed, so campers will now need to bring a bag lunch. A cook-out and races on the Christina River are held the last day of camp.

Prerequisites: All rowers must show proof of basic swimming ability (see swim form).

All rowers receive a ROWING 101 t-shirt.
