Summer Camp

Registration is now OPEN!

What is the Youth Summer Camp?

Whitemarsh Boat Club offers Learn-to-Row and Advanced-Level Day Camps for Middle and High School athletes.  The Learn-to-Row camp is perfect for athletes who have never rowed before and want to discover this sport in a fun environment with very experienced coaches.  Our Advanced-Level Camp is great for athletes who know how to row and want to get better at the stroke.  All campers will spend one week fully immersed in the sport!  They will primarily spend time sculling (with 2 oars) with the possibility of sweeping (1 oar) if numbers allow.

Why Whitemarsh?

WBC is known for teaching people how to row!  Our coaches have been teaching people how to row for decades, their expertise ensures that everyone learns to row from the best.  In the past parents and athletes have reported that they love camp, and many athletes sign up for additional camp sessions.  After one week of camp, you will be asking, “What’s next?”  Whitemarsh is proud to see many of their Learn-to-Row graduates actively racing in schools in the Tri-county area, and many will go on to row in college!
