Summer is coming and so are SORA’s Summer Crew Camps!

We have a camp for all levels of rowing experience and are open to kids in grades 6 - 12.


ALL summer programming is subject to change as we continue to deal with the consequences of Covid-19. We may alter, reschedule or cancel events as need be to adhere to current CDC guidelines.

SORA's safety protocol can be found here: SORA and COVID-19

Our 2 week programs are designed primarily for the new/beginner rower, who will be in the 6th to 12th grade next school year.

Our 1 week High School program is designed primarily for the new beginner rower, who will be in 9th to 12th grade. This is a 1 week intensive program to introduce rowing to those that are interested in rowing with our High School competitive team. We will explore the basics of rowing and rowing technique, how to responsibly handle the equipment (boats and oars), and spend time on the water to apply what they learned on land. Additionally, these campers participate in land-based training for overall fitness. 

Advanced Middle School Program  -  1 Week ONLY-  $175 per session

Our Advanced Middle School program is a one week Summer Camp for our returning Middle School rowers and those Middle School rowers that are trying to hone their skills and gain more experience during the summer months. Rowers will work on sweep, sculling and land training. 

Sculling Camp -  2 Weeks - $325

Fee includes Water/Land based Training
20 Participant Limit. 

Our new Sculling Elite Camp is a 2 week (Monday - Friday) camp focused on the novice to elite high school rowers who want to improve their technical ability in sculling boats. Each participant will be placed in groups determined by ability and will be coached by SORA Head Coach Terry Davison and Coach Tom Lineberry.  This training program would consist of all sculling boat skills and technique in Singles, Doubles and Quads. Our sculling elite camp will include focused technical sessions with feedback and development, video reviews and rowing specific nutrition for the competitive rower.

High School Drop-In

  • Weekly Rate $50 / Week (Monday - Thursday)
  • Daily Rate$15 / Day (Monday - Thursday)

Returning this summer is our High School Drop-in Program. Do you want to get on the water and put those meters in without a camp experience? This is a great opportunity to work on those small boat skills or get a group of friends together and work on boats of all sizes.

All HS rowers may sign up for any camp at a reduced fee.  You may sign-up for an entire session, a week at a time or even drop-in for a day of rowing with your friends. There is no coaching involved but you will be accompanied by a launch for safety and able to enjoy a day of rowing.

Each participant should have athletic clothing, shoes and socks, a soft plastic water bottle, and a non-perishable snack that is packaged in a squirrel-proof bag. (Our squirrels are very creative - and hungry!)

High School Strength & Conditioning Boot Camp

Excellent training for all of our new and upcoming High School Rowers. If you want to make significant performance gains over the summer, this camp is for you! You may sign up for one day a week or two, however in order to get the full training benefit we suggest the rower commits to two days a week for at least 3+ weeks over the summer. 

Each session is 45 minutes and you will be working with graduating Senior Matt Nichols. Coach Matt will continue to work with SORA over the 2020-2021 season in Strength and Conditioning. All training sessions will be approved and overseen by Coach Terry.
