Summer Camps

OARS 2021 Summer Camps are Open!

This summer we will return to a full schedule of OARS camps.  If you are new to the sport of rowing, our Learn To Row camps are for you.  If you are a current OARS rower, or a rower from a different club or high school team, looking to get back on the water or improve your strength and fitness, we also have camps for you!

Please see below for descriptions and sign up links for each of our different camps.
