Youth Summer Learn to Row Series

Rowing is a dynamic sport that fosters strengthening of the body and the mind in a supportive and team-oriented environment. At this camp participants will learn the basics of rowing, beginning work on the land on rowing machines, then moving into boats on the river. Throughout the process, participants will learn rowing terminology, boat handling, and how to work together as a team to make a boat move down the Iowa River!
