What: Calling all athletes! Join the Baltimore Community Rowing (BCR) Juniors on the water this summer to learn the sport of rowing. Hop in a boat and row alongside BCR junior rowers, college-bound alumni athletes, and BCR coaches on the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River. During your week at BCR, you will learn the skills and earn the fitness to become a rower. In addition to water time, campers will spend time on land learning boat handling and rowing technique, rowing on the erg (rowing machine), and participating in land-based workouts. Each week will end in a camp-wide regatta to test your rowing skill!
