We'll Get You Ready for Fall!

Row West is a training camp for girls 14-18

held in Los Angeles, California. The goal of the camp is to prepare young women for their upcoming fall season by improving their technical rowing skills, establishing a fitness foundation and teaching them the mental skills they'll need to tackle Head of the Charles selection, fall erg testing or whatever other challenges may come their way. This year's camp will run August 5th-13th. We will begin taking applications in mid-February. Applicants are evaluated on a rolling basis until all spots are filled.

Row West Racing Camp

Skill. Courage. Commitment. 

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.
