Camp Overview
The MIT Youth Rowing Camp offers your choice of four one-week day camps for high-school-age rowers, emphasizing sculling skills.  Sculling is a lifetime sport and a valuable skill for all rowers, especially those who hope to row in college.  Teaching methods will include on-the-water coaching, video review, and tank demonstrations, with a high coach-to-athlete ratio to ensure that all campers receive lots of individual attention.  All instructors are Division I rowing coaches, including varsity coaches Tony Kilbridge, Will Oliver, Claire Martin-Doyle and Holly Metcalf. The MIT Youth Rowing Camp is open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level, and gender.

Who Can Attend
The camps are open to boys and girls age 13-18 of all skill levels.  Sweep rowers who are looking to improve their boat skills are encouraged to attend.

Site and Facility
The camps take place at MIT’s Pierce Boathouse, on the Charles River at 409 Memorial Drive in Cambridge. Click Here for directions.
