About the camp

Steel City Rowing’s Henley camp is focused on achieving a high level of success at The Royal Canadian Henley. The practices are rigorous. During training, rowers will have the opportunity to refine their technique both in sculling and sweep boats, while building strength and endurance in preparation for the race.  Our world-class LEED certified facility is located on a peaceful 6 mile stretch of the Allegheny River.
