Men’s Rowing Camps

Finding the right rowing camps where you can improve your technique and get a new perspective on the way you row—whether that’s on the water or on the erg—will always help in your recruiting. This section will help you look at men’s rowing camps so you can decide which one will be best for you. 

What are some of the best rowing camps?

What to expect at summer rowing camps

Summer rowing camps hosted by colleges will give you insights into how student-athletes train at that college. Daily sessions will help you with physical training, including technique, endurance conditioning and strength conditioning. Most camps also include instruction on the mental side of rowing, including video analysis and racing tactics.

Effective training for rowing includes a lot of volume to expand aerobic capacity and improve form. This means you likely won’t be able to completely change your rowing technique or 2k erg time in a couple of days, even with the best collegiate instruction. However, you will still learn valuable skills and information—just don’t go into a camp experience imagining that your erg score will radically change in a couple of days.

While athletes in some sports go to camps to get identified by college coaches, rowers at college rowing camps should anticipate that they’ll be benefiting from improved technique, new workouts and deepening their knowledge of the sport. Make sure you’ve properly set your expectations and researched which rowing camps are right for you.

What are some of the best rowing camps?

The highest concentration of rowing camps can be found in the northeast portion of the country, which is also where you’ll find the most rowing clubs and college rowing teams. Camps range in price, length and experience levels and it’s best to research ahead of time what is available in your region. On the higher end, camps span a week or more and include meals and housing to provide an immersive rowing experience.

At the Cal Men’s Crew Camp in Berkeley, California, experienced rowers and coxswains receive rowing-related instruction and college recruiting insights from current Cal coaches, making it one of the best camps on the West Coast. Meanwhile, the Penn AC Gold high performance camp in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania offers an intensive program that includes two to three practices per day and spans one month with room and board included.

While these camps do offer a great opportunity to improve one’s rowing skills and work ethic, families should always consider what fits their budget because camps offer no guarantees of making a college roster and it is difficult to secure athletic scholarship money for men’s rowing at the college level.

Insider tip: Despite the impact that coronavirus had on college sports, as of June 1, 2021, the NCAA resumed its regular recruiting rules and activity! Coaches are actively working to fill their rosters, so student-athletes should be proactive in reaching out to coaches. Read up on how the extra year of eligibility granted to athletes who were most affected by the pandemic in 2020 will impact future recruiting classes.

Find men’s rowing camps near me

College rowing camps offer athletes a chance to improve their technique, learn more about the sport and get evaluated by coaches, making them an important part of the recruiting process. College rowing camps are especially helpful for rowers and coxswains who may not have a lot of access to rowing in their region, allowing them to hone their skills and potentially check out a college they’re interested in. College rowing camps can even help inexperienced but promising athletes learn the ropes before they attempt to win a spot on a novice crew and become a walk-on at their college.

We are continuously adding new camps to this list, so check back often to find more camp opportunities!
