Day Camp 8-15 (Weekly)

Covid-19 and Day Camp 8-15 (Weekly)

The club is pleased to offer a day camp for the 2021 season. The Covid-19 pandemic still imposes several constraints, particularly on the use of boats and access to the building. We had to modify the day camp formula accordingly.

Subscriptions are offered on a weekly basis from June 28 to August 20 for half-days from 9 am to 12 am (sorry, we are full) or 1 pm to 4 pm.

There can only be 15 teens in the morning and 15 other teens in the afternoon. This limitation on the number of registrations is due by the obligation to row alone (brothers and sisters can row together) and by the limited number of boats available.

Access to the interior of the club is not permitted in order to comply with the hygiene measures required by Public Health, the city of Montreal and the Association québécoise d’aviron. Consequently, it will not be possible:

  • to leave personal effects inside the club,
  • to have a meal inside the club.

However, a room will be made available at the Maison du Brasseur in the event of bad weather.

If the guidelines on rowing during the pandemic change, we will inform you and adapt our formula.

Weekly registration

This day camp is for children and teenagers between 8 and 15 years old.

Rowing is…

One of the oldest Olympic sports

A gliding sport that takes place on water, in safe crafts of 1, 2, 4 or 8 rowers

A sport of complete physical endurance that will enhance coordination and concentration

A mixed sport, accessible for children as young as 8 years old

Camp objectives

  • Help young athletes discover rowing in a safe environment under the supervision of qualified instructors
  • Encourage physical exercise amongst young people
  • Introduce these youths to a competitive sport
  • Develop their sense of pride in belonging on a team

Development : By participating in our day camp (8-15 years old, weekly), young rowers forge strong links with other youngsters their age, marked by unforgettable moments that teach them to work together as a team. From the age of 16, they can transition if they wish, to our competitive team (see Competitive Program).

Schedule

The camp begins at 9 am and ends at noon. (Sorry, we arefull) The afternoon session starts at 1 pm and ends at 4 pm.

Going out on the water is interspersed with small lectures and activities out of the water.

All technical equipment is provided (boat, paddles, life jackets).  Young people who have previously been to our camp – can enroll again as the learning objectives are adjusted according to the level of knowledge of children enrolled.

Light rain or drizzle does not stop us from getting out on the water. However, strong winds, waves and storms will necessitate off-water activities, which again are conducted by our monitors

It is very important that our young members follow the Club’s instructions.
