We are excited to announce that we will be offering two camp sessions in 2018:
Camps are open to any and all entrants limited only by number, age, grade level, and/or gender. NCAA rules prohibit free/reduced camp admission for prospect-aged individuals.
Head Coach Kevin Sauer has elevated Virginia to the most elite level of rowing programs in the country.
The Rivanna Reservoir is a beautiful body of protected water located just minutes from the University of Virginia.
Campers stay at St. Anne's-Belfield, a local boarding school. Housing and meals are included in the cost of camp.
Rowers will be grouped according to skill level. Our goal is the improvement of all campers regardless of experience.
