Learn To Row Camps
Summer is a great time to experience rowing on Lake Monona and Monona Bay. We offer recreational summer programs that offer area youth the chance to learn rowing for the first time or to continue developing their rowing skills. Our camps take a creative approach to the fundamentals of sculling for all experience levels.
Designed with the developing athlete in mind, our camps prioritize fun methods of learning through boat tricks, games, and more. All athletes, from the true novice to the experienced will develop a better understanding of rowing while becoming comfortable and confident. Skill development will focus on the fundamentals of the rowing stroke. Our camps include dry-land training and educational activities geared towards developing the whole athlete. This includes but is not limited to safety, team building, and general fitness.
