The Providence Rowing Camp at Brown University provides a fun and exciting atmosphere where high school aged (13-18) athletes can learn from top-level coaches how to improve their technique, develop into competitive racers and learn the ins-and-outs of the college recruiting process.
During the camp, attendees will be utilizing Brown’s state-of-the-art equipment, and will also attend seminars presented by the coaches in topics ranging from improving performance on the erg and managing the recruiting process, to balancing life as a student athlete.
Aside from excellent coaching, athletes will also have the opportunity to make great friends with the other campers, many of whom travel to our camp from other countries. Campers will be supervised at all times and will also have fun downtime activities to encourage them to interact with their fellow campers.
Athletes traveling from outside the Providence area stay at the Hilton Garden Inn (220 India Street, Providence, RI) located across the street from the boathouse. The Hilton has recently undergone a complete remodel and is now the newest hotel in Providence. The hotel is equipped with such amenities as air conditioning, a media room, a cafe, and various comfortable common areas for campers to interact. Athletes have round the clock supervision from the camp staff, and meals are prepared on site by the hotel.
Rowing clothing should fit close to the body. Anything loose, including running shorts and low-hanging shirts WILL get stuck in rowing boat tracks. This not only causes disruptions but also leads to equipment damage and potential injury, due to the nature of the sport. NO BASKETBALL-STYLE SHORTS WILL BE ALLOWED DURING ROWING SPECIFIC WORKOUTS! This includes mesh athletic shorts and other loose-fitting gear. Rowers wear spandex trou shorts or unisuits for a reason! If you don’t have a pair, it would be a great investment since they will be required at the college level. If you are unsure where to find a pair economically, email us. Coxswains should wear athletic gear that won’t scratch the boat (i.e. no rivets).
Brown University Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants that meet the listed age requirements for each camp.
