Learn to Row Camps

FALL SEASON | WINTER SEASON | SPRING SEASON | SUMMER SEASON

Summer is the perfect opportunity to come out and give rowing a try!

  • These week-long co-ed camps are an introduction to the sport of rowing during June and July. 
  • Most of our current rowers have never even seen rowing before they came to one of our Summer Camps.
  • Campers must be 12-17 years old, and do not need to know anything about rowing to participate.
  • Campers are grouped each session by age, size, and skill level, so returning campers from previous sessions will continue to develop throughout the summer. We will begin on land with the basic movements, terminology, safety information, and how to handle the equipment. The rest of the week will be spent on the water learning how to row.  
  • Training is conducted at our boathouse on Fort Loudoun Lake (3452 Louisville Road, Louisville
  • Each session is capped at 16 campers to ensure personal attention and skill development at the rower’s own pace, so space is limited. Walk-up registration is available if seats go unfilled.
  • These classes are outdoor and are dependent on the weather. Conditions can feel very different on the water than on land, so dressing in layers is useful. Once we start on the water we row rain or shine, so be prepared. Wear clothing that is comfortable for exercising, and fit close to the body (so it won’t get caught in the seat/slide).  Footwear should have rubber bottoms and always bring a water bottle. It is also a great idea to bring sunscreen, towel, hat, water bottle, and snacks if needed.

PREREQUISITES: 

  • As the camper needs to be able to work with the equipment which can be heavy and cumbersome. We ask new rowers to be able to lift 30 pounds over their head, as some of our equipment weighs just over 200 pounds as they will be required to carrying the boats down to the water.
  • Campers must know how to swim. If you cannot swim, you probably shouldn’t be on the water rowing. 

COST: $125 - includes camp t-shirt. 

  • All payments must be made at the time of registration. There are no refunds or prorated payments for summer programs. Family and multiple sessions discounts available. Please see the staff for more details.
