Summer Camps are a great way for boys and girls ages 12-17 to learn about rowing and decide whether to take up the sport more seriously. For those who have already tried and enjoyed rowing, camp is a way to improve their skills!

Camps run in week-long sessions from 8:30pm-3:30pm, except on public holidays. The camps are directed by experienced rowers and coaches who are qualified in first aid and CPR.

Campers get out on the Ottawa River daily, and learn water safety, boat rigging and maintenance. The camp also features other age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities.

Equipment and supplies: dress for the weather in snug, comfortable sports clothing; socks, running shoes, hat and water bottle recommended. Lunch and snacks required. Sunscreen protection.
