About the Camp

Steel City’s Learn to Row Camps have up to 15 on-the-water practices each week which allows campers to acquire skills quickly. The goal of this Learn To Row is to have campers rowing with confidence, working effectively in a team environment, and having a blast enjoying the river with new friends. All of this prepares the campers to progress on to the next stage of rowing.

Campers are introduced to the basics of rowing and water safety by one of our USRowing certified coaches. During the campers will progress from sweep rowing, (one oar per person in 8 or 4 person boats) to sculling,  (2 oars per person, in 4, 2 and 1 person boats).

"Jacob found a safe and supportive place at Steel City to nurture his new athletic endeavor. He appreciated the coaches' firm yet encouraging guidance and immediately felt part of the group. He loved that he got to get right on the water and start rowing on day one." - Amy Bair, mother of a Summer 2016 Learn to Row Camper
