Summer Camps

FALL SEASON | WINTER SEASON | SPRING SEASON | SUMMER SEASON

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

  • Most of our current rowers have never even seen rowing before they came to one of our Summer Camps.
  • We offer six one-week introductory camp sessions during June and July.
  • Training is conducted on Fort Loudoun Lake out of our boathouse located at 3452 Louisville Road, Louisville
  • Camp works on the fundamentals of sweep rowing (using one oar) in a fun, engaging, safe environment. Training includes:
    • • a complete overview of the sport of rowing
    • • terminology
    • • equipment handling on and off the water 
    • • technique
    • • boat safety 
  • Everyone participates starting on rowing machines to introduce the basics then on to the water in and eight- or four-person rowing shells for on water skill application.
  • Each session is capped at 24 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.
  • 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. Outdoor classes 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. It is also a great idea to bring sunscreen, towel, hat, water bottle, and snacks if needed.

PREREQUISITES: 

  • • No prior rowing experience needed.
  • • Camps are co-ed for students ages 11-17. Campers are grouped each session by age, size, and skill level, so returning campers from previous sessions will continue to develop throughout the summer.
  • • 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.
  • • All new rowers to know how to swim. If you cannot swim, you probably shouldn’t be on the water rowing. 
  • • Campers should watch the USRowing Safety Video prior to session.

COST: $125 (includes camp t-shirt)
