Summer Camp for Middle School kids - $350

QCRC offers an excellent and fun summer camp for middle school kids from all public and private schools within the Cincinnati area. Our camp focuses on learning basic rowing skills in a fun and supportive environment. Kids row in 4’s and 4X’s and continue to row in 2X’s and finish learning the single scull (1X). Starting potential rowers in sculling small boats at an early age is the same model that has produced so many successful European clubs and national teams. 

  • July 1st – 31st 
  • Practices are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8AM – 10: 30AM
