What are the best Summer Rowing camps for 14 year olds worldwide? My daughter has 1 solid year rowing and top 10 provincial Erg scores.
Some days the Rowperfect mailbag comes in with the BEST questions. I particularly like new challenges where we have not previously written on the topic. Aimee’s question was one of these. Aimee sparked me into doing more research because this is clearly a topic we need to cover off here in the blog!

So I reached out to our readers on Facebook – and got a couple of answers and did some research too.
Best Rowing Camps for Children
I am not in a position to judge the “best” camps.
but they are US oriented, not Canadian (where our questioner lives).
- Sparks Consult has a list of rowing camps which they run as part of their university recruitment preparation service.
- I found Brock do kids camps
UK Rowing camps
- Durham University Sculling Camp
- GB Rowing did a news article from 2009 about camps and rowing / sculling courses
- Shiplake College runs co-curricular rowing camps
- Cambridge Rowing Camps is a business delivering camps in Cambridge
- Eton Rowing Courses
- Imperial College Rowing Courses at Putney in London
Europe Rowing Camps
- This web page shows locations across Europe but most seem to be rowing courses, not training or educational event
- Castleconnell B.C in Limerick Ireland run summer camps
- Hungary has Milestone Rowing Club in Budapest who recently hosted clubs including the Cambridge and Oxford University Boat Clubs, Oxbridge College crews and a Vietnamese national U23 team. Photos of the club
This is a pretty slim list – please let’s make it a better resource for everyone. If your club runs a camp or learn to row course, please list it in the comments below.
