Long Island Rowing Camps

Try Rowing for FREE and check out our list of Rowing Camps on Long Island so your kids can give it a row!

We’re heading over to Oyster Bay for National Learn to Row Day!

Remember how excited we were for Port Rowing’s “Row for Autism” event? And then it was canceled due to frigid temperatures and pouring rain….it was a sad day for us. We had been looking forward to trying our hand at rowing for some time (what can we say, Oxford Blues stuck with us).

So, we are really excited to participate in the National Learn to Row Day in Oyster Bay.

And, fellow Scoutters — we also put together a list of rowing camps just in case your little one(s) catch some rowing fever.

Sadly, Oxford University does not offer youth rowing camp options. But if you’re interested in a more collegiate program, check out these programs at Columbia University, Penn, and Boston University from August 7-10. Practicing in a collegiate environment gives kids the opportunity to grow accustomed to being in a higher level academia setting as well as a glimpse of what it feels like to be a student-athlete.
