2023 Youth Summer Camp

Weekly Full-Day Rowing/Multi-Sport Summer Camp

Benefits: Campers get an excellent introduction to rowing and learn the basic technical aspects of the sport including on-land training using rowing machines and on-water sculling/sweeping experience in everything from training singles to eights. Our RCA trained camp coaches bring the fun along with teaching proper rowing technique. SNRC Youth Camp builds self-confidence, develops skills, and creates new friendships. This camp offers a unique experience for trying a new sport in a supportive environment all while spending days on the water. Our camp will also offer a unique opportunity to try other activities such as beach volleyball, basketball and if available tennis, pickleball through partnership with the City of Welland and the Empire Sports Complex.

Safety: Camp participants will be supervised by experienced coaches in a fully-equipped motorized coach boat, including life jackets, and other safety equipment. All coaches have proper police background checks. A swim waiver is required for minor youths (under 18 years of age) and will be sent out to participants via email once registration is completed and prior to the camp week

Eligibility: No prior rowing experience required. Designed for Beginners Ages 11 to 15
