Summer Camps 2024

St. Andrew Rowing offers Summer Camp to develop and hone your rowers skills in preparation for joining the team in Fall and succeeding in seasonal regattas.

We offer 4 Summer options:

1. Learn to Row - our fundamental program for young athletes wishing to try a new sport!

2. Foundations - beginners program having completed at least one Learn to Row session.

3. Conditioning - advanced program for novice/varsity rowers looking to maintain and improve over summer in advance of the upcoming fall season.

4. Open Boathouse - seasoned athletes provided open access of facilities during prescribed times.

Our experienced coaching staff and seasoned athlete-volunteers make the SARC experience like no other. Campers will learn about the sport through hands-on experience in eight and four-person rowing shells. Campers will also learn rowing safety, boat handling, terminology, and beginner thru advanced rowing technique all while enjoying the beautiful Chattahoochee River. These camps offer the most continuous time on the water of any rowing camp in the Metro Atlanta Area and they are an excellent experience for rowers who may wish to join one of our squads in the fall!
