Wildlife River Camp

 Ages 8 to 11

Monday - Friday
9:30 am - 3:30 pm

The summer camps at Steel City provide a fun activity that allows the kids to learn a skill and develop a passion for the outdoors.  The instructors are caring, and cultivate an inclusive environment.  It is my son’s favorite camp that he has ever participated in.  - Charlene Hrivnak, mother of a four-time camp participant


Campers will spend their mornings exploring the Allegheny River in kayaks and canoes while learning about the abundant wildlife the river supports and what can be done to protect it.   

Each week will explore a different part of the river and ecosystem. Afternoons will find us back on the dock for paddle boarding, swimming, and an opportunity to try rowing in one of our recreational sculling boats.

Week 3: July 16th -July 20th

Week 4: July 30 -August 3

Safety is the primary concern of Steel City Rowing Club. We take every possible measure to ensure that everyone enjoys their time on the water. All campers wear personal flotation devices as required by State Law and Club policy. In addition, river and weather conditions are closely monitored by our experienced counselors. 

Steel City Rowing Club reserves the right to cancel a camp due to lack of registrations. Advanced notice will be given if minimums are not met, and refunds will be given to anyone who'd already made a payment.
