Row West!


Our goal is to send our campers home not only better rowers, but better, stronger, more complete human beings.


We are committed to giving our campers a one-of-a-kind experience in which they will develop the physical fitness, commitment, mental toughness and self-confidence that are the hallmarks not just of outstanding athletes, but of exceptional people. 


Our comprehensive, integrated approach to training will provide campers with the physical, mental and emotional tools they need to raise their level of performance in and out of the boat, all in an environment that emphasizes fun, hard work, teamwork and personal responsibility. 

Our Coaches

We are monitoring the coronavirus situation. We are currently still planning on holding camp and are still taking applications. If the pandemic-related closures and restrictions continue into the summer, we may be forced to reevaluate, but for now, we are a go. 

Skill. Courage. Commitment.
