CCR Summer 2019 Rowing Camps
Learn to Row at Capital City Rowing’s Long Skinny Boat Camp
What is Long Skinny Boat Camp?
Long Skinny Boat Camp teaches beginners to row.
Beginners learn terminology, technique & teamwork. Our experienced coaching staff will provide team-building land drills, on-the-water instruction and a good bit of fun and excitement. Students train alongside the Varsity rowers for an enhanced rowing experience. Long Skinny Boat Camp is the perfect opportunity for any rising 6th through 12th grade high school student interested in the sport of rowing.
Is Experience Necessary?
NO! Capital City Rowing offers two sessions of one-week camp for first time rowers who want to learn more about the sport of rowing. New rowers participate in hands-on instruction along-side experienced rowers. The only minimum requirement is campers must be entering the sixth grade and up to participate.
CCR offer two 1-week Sessions (M-F, 8:30 am – 12:30 p.m. at Lake Hall at Maclay Gardens)
- 1st Session: July 22 – July 26 ($225)
- 2nd Session: July 29 – August 2 ($225)

Exceptional Full Body Workout
Rowing combines the strength of the arms, back, and core with the power from the legs to involve all major muscle groups. Though it is a high aerobic workout, it is low impact on the joints, helping make rowing a popular sport for all ages.
A Walk-On Sport
Unlike many other sports, rowing is an ideal sport to learn at any age. Capital City Rowing welcomes rowers to join the team at any time throughout the year. Our program is designed to accommodate rowers of all skill levels. It is easier to get started than you may think!
Be a Part of a Team
Rowing is the ultimate team sport. Rowers will quickly learn that being part of a ‘crew’ is a valuable experience. Teamwork is a necessary component of rowing and provides opportunities for leadership and personal growth.
Enjoy the Outdoors
If you enjoy exercising outdoors, then you will love the opportunity to practice and compete on the water. Few athletes have the opportunity to incorporate ‘being on the water’ into their daily routine, which many rowers find very satisfying.
