The youth summer rowing camp program offers instruction in rowing to students entering 6th to 12th grade (ages 11 to 18). For athletes looking for something new, this coed camp is a great way to find out if rowing might be a good fit.
Albany Rowing Center (ARC) teaches young athletes about the sport of rowing through participation in a fun and educational setting. Students will learn water and boat safety, stroke mechanics on the ergometer (rowing machine) and the basic techniques of sweep rowing and sculling on the Hudson River. While the majority of time is spent on the water, there is also fitness training on land and education about boats and equipment. Campers learn how to work as a team. No prior experience necessary. Those who would like to continue rowing may join our competitive rowing program.
Camp runs Monday through Friday; hours are 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM except on Friday when camp ends at 12:30 PM. On Friday, weather-permitting, parents are invited to come at 11AM and observe. Afterwards, parents and rowers will enjoy lunch with their coaches. At that time, ARC staff will be available to answer any questions about the club, the sport, and/or getting involved in our fall rowing programs. Camp fee includes an ARC T-shirt and pizza lunch on the last day of each session.
