(Rowers also have the option of joining us for any one-, two-, or three- week period within those four weeks, although we recommend that any rower who plans to compete in the 2015-2016 school year complete our entire four-week program.)

The camp will be held at one of the most beautiful rowing facilities in the country, the Shane Watersports Center located on the calm waters of Indian Creek in Miami Beach.

The camp schedule is Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to noon, with two sessions per day.

The main focus of these camps are to provide campers with a firm idea of what it is like to be part of a Nationally competitive collegiate rowing program. 

A rower's daily routine will include twice-a-day workouts on Lake Carnegie, introductions to effective ergometer workouts and testing methods, core strength training, technical sessions in the rowing tanks, and speakers from either the Princeton University Athletic Department umbrella or the 2012 United States Olympic Team. Speakers will cover a wide range of topics, including nutrition best practices, building better strategies for ergometer testing, the experience of rowing in the Olympics, and how to navigate the ever changing recruiting process. Coaches are available for daily one-on-one sessions to discuss how personal training and technical improvements will enable each rower to achieve his or her goals. In addition, each rower will receive at least 60 minutes of direct video analysis and feedback during the week. 

All of our camps offer coxswain-specific instruction. Coxswains are separated into their own group for daily instructional sessions. In addition, they are assigned to a boat for on-the-water training and races. We can proudly say, without a doubt, that the Princeton rowing camps are not only the best camp for rowers, but also coxswains.
