2018 Summer Rowing Camps

Row the beautiful Mississippi River. Open to all skill levels. Boarding available.

Y Quad Cities Rowing and Rivermont Collegiate Rowing Academy have partnered to offer summer rowing camps to rowers of all skill levels from across the country. Gain valuable knowledge of the sport while learning about teamwork and rowing technique, both on and off the water.

Our camps allow rowers to be on the water 2-3 times a day, most of the time spent in sculling boats and some of the time in sweep boats. rowers will learn more about college rowing, both from college rowers and college coaches involved with the camps.

Rowers will launch from the Sylvan Boathouse in Moline, a short 10-minute drive from Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf, Iowa. When off the water, rowers will enjoy spending time in Rivermont Collegiate’s newly renovated dorm facility. They can relax in the common area and enjoy spirited conversation with other rowers and coaches or, if boarding with us for week, they can head to their dorm room for a little quiet time.
