Introductory week-long rowing camp for ages 10-14 years
No Experience required: Campers learn everything about rowing, from boat handling to stroke technique, all in one week. By Friday they're zipping around the reservoir!
Covid-friendly: campers will row in wide, stable one person rowing shells and racing singles (check Covid-19 disclaimer)
Camp starts at 9:00am and finishes at 4:00pm. Supervision starts at 8:30am if your child must be dropped off early.
Cost per participant: $225 + Tax (includes the $44 Rowing Canada Aviron membership fee)
The week long camps are broken down into an orientation session, on-water rowing sessions, off-water sessions and camp games activities.
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.
The first 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 around three hours of on-water 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 camp 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!
