Day Camp 10-15 (2 Week Blocks)

2 Week Blocks registration

This day camp is for children and teenagers between 10 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 10 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 (10-15 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.  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.
