Capital Rowing Club’s Summer Learn-to-Row camp is offered free to participants and comprises four week-long sessions and meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Anacostia Community Boathouse. Summer Learn-to-Row offers boys and girls, ages 12–17, the chance to learn rowing for the first time, to explore the Anacostia riverfront, and to build teamwork and friendships with students from across all eight DC wards.

The program is taught in a fun and supportive environment, with a goal of developing a solid foundation of rowing skills. Over the course of the week, students:

  • are introduced to basic measures of fitness and strength on the rowing machine (i.e., erg),
  • learn rowing terminology and how to handle equipment, and
  • develop a basic set of rowing skills.

Training takes place on CRC ergs and on CRC barges (i.e., eight-person training boats). The daily schedule includes warm-ups, on-the-water instruction and practice, and land-based team- and strength-building activities. On the last day of camp, students have an opportunity to race in a friendly, intramural environment. Afterward, we celebrate our achievements with an outdoor pizza party at the boathouse.
