Summer 2021 Learn to Row Camps
New in 2021:
We are hosting camps for athletes entering or in High School, AND a camp for middle school athletes.
We look forward to welcome any High School and Middle School students interested in learning the basics of our sport, and the opportunity to join our team and be on our crew! No prior experience necessary.
While it has been a trying year, WRC looks forward to offering summer camps for new rowers in 2021. We have successfully allowed our current competitive team to be on the water this Spring, and we feel confident in our ability to work within all COVID requirements of the state and county as summertime nears. The camps will be held with all protocols in place in order to reduce the possibility of spread of the COVID virus and expanding variants. The Westerville Rowing staff has been operating with the current protocols and restrictions since May 2020.
