Rose City Rowing Club offers ROW Portland Day Camp
Financial Assistance Available

Portland, Oregon – In recent years, rowing in the Pacific Northwest has expanded on a grand scale. The Rose City Rowing Club will teach teens (7th through 9th grade) how to row in a two-week day camp.

“We do this program every year to expose teens to rowing,” said Nick Haley, head coach for Rose City Rowing Club. “It’s the first time many of them have engaged in the sport. We do this to recruit more students to rowing. It’s a great sport with many scholarship opportunities.”

Financial assistance for this session is available to any athlete in grades 7-9, who is eligible for free and/or reduced-priced lunches in Portland Public Schools (or any other school district). This camp was created to expand access to rowing to those who many not otherwise be able to row – due to barriers of cost, swimming ability or transportation. The camp includes lunch and transportation from neighborhood schools to the boathouse and is an introduction to the sport for beginners entering 7th – 9th grade with no rowing experience. Space is limited to 20 participants. For more information or to register, please visit: http://www.rosecityrowing.org/programs/summer.php

This day camp is sponsored by the Windermere Foundation.

 

What:             ROW Portland day camp for 7th - 9th graders

Where:            Portland Boathouse
                       1515 SE Water Ave. (North of OMSI), Portland

When:           10 a.m. to 2 p.m., daily, from Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 26, 2019

 

 

About Rose City Rowing Club
Rose City offers several rowing programs that serve various youth populations in the Portland area. With a centralized location in downtown Portland and easy access to public transportation, rowing is more accessible to more of Portland's youth than ever before.

Rowing is an extremely teamwork-oriented sport that requires consistent dedication from each team member. The kids learn how to set goals and work every day toward achieving them. They can grow into strong, fit, well-balanced athletes, with minimal risk of injury. We offer classes for middle and high school students and are progressive in our creation and operation of alternative programs and events.

The athletes learn positive life lessons about teambuilding and cooperation. Rowing is a life sport and participants are able to use what they learn both on and off the water for the rest of their lives. In fact, many former junior rowers have returned to Portland and are now teaching and coaching the next generation of student-athletes.

Rowing is an alternative sport for many kids who have not found their niche in traditional sports in school. Rose City helps augment the sports options available to kids in high school, providing an outlet for people who otherwise might not have participated in high school athletics. In addition, rowers are exposed to significant college recruiting opportunities.
