Our Youth Camp members will learn everything about rowing, from boat handling to stroke technique, all in a week! By Friday they're zipping around the reservoir.
The week long camps are broken down into an orientation session, rowing sessions and off-water sessions.
Teamwork is crucial in rowing. We emphasize this by incorporating fun games that require working together effectively. The CRC camp experience builds self-confidence, develops skills, and above all, new friendships.
Camp starts at 8:30am and finishes at 4:00pm. Supervision starts at 8:00am if your son/daughter must be dropped off early. Ages 10 - 15, no fitness level or rowing experience required!
During this hour on the first day the coaches will cover the basics of the sport. Safety rules, boat handling techniques, boat components and common rowing terminology will be covered.
Each day, the youth will have three to four hours of rowing time (weather and water conditions permitting).
Rowing is also about dry land training. Our coaches will teach them about the different aspects of dry land training. From team games to relay races on the rowing machines, dry land training centres on developing conditioning while having fun!
The Summer Splash Regatta
The week ends with the Summer Splash Regatta. The rowers will have their chance to show off their rowing skills as they race down our 1500m course for a chance to win the coveted Slurpee Cup. Parents are welcome to attend, watch and cheer on the crews!
