The Providence Rowing Camp at Brown University provides a fun and exciting atmosphere where high school aged 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.

Providence Rowing Camp will be going into its 12th year in operation, and boasts a staff of nearly all former or current Brown coaches and oarsmen and women, many of whom have been with our camp from the very beginning, and have earned numerous Ivy League and National Titles rowing for Brown. Nowhere else will you find a more dynamic, friendly, fun and knowledgeable staff than Providence Rowing Camp.

During the camp, attendees will be rowing out of the Marston Boathouse, which boasts a newly renovated dock and pier, as well as facilities on Brown’s campus. Campers use Brown’s state-of-the-art equipment, including Resolute Racing shells, and will also attend seminars presented by the coaches and guest speakers in topics ranging from recovery techniques and strength training to managing the recruiting process and balancing life as a student athlete.

Aside from excellent coaching and teaching, 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.

HOUSING AND MEALS
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 renovation and is now one of the newest hotels 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 will be supervised in the hotel by the camp staff, and meals are prepared on site in the hotel kitchens. The hotel kitchen can accommodate campers with dietary restrictions easily.

Important Health Advisory

Due to recent outbreaks of measles, in consultation with Brown University’s Health Services and General Counsel’s Office, Pre-College Programs and Sports Camps are prohibiting any student or athlete from attending these programs if they have not completed the measles vaccinations.

This decision was made because of the structure of the summer programs: measles is a highly infectious disease that can incubate for two weeks before any symptoms appear. Given that many of our students and athletes are present on campus from anywhere from 1 day to 3 weeks, and then depart, the opportunities for this disease to be spread within and beyond our community is significant enough to warrant this kind of decision.


Brown University Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants that meet the listed eligibility requirements for each camp.
