Rowing Camp 

The St. Albans rowing camp offers interested athletes a chance to explore the world of competitive crew. Campers will learn about the basics of the equipment, safety rules, and get a chance to row on the Potomac River in St. Albans racing shells. The camp is designed so that students learn the fundamentals of the sport and then get a chance to do some informal racing.

READ BEFORE REGISTERING: Due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic, Thompson Boat Center currently has restrictions that would affect our ability to host Rowing Camp; however, we hold out hope that the situation will improve by late spring.  Additionally, there will be no bus service from St. Albans; campers must arrive/leave from the boathouse directly.
