Middle School Summer Camps

Summer is great time to experience rowing on Lake Union. Our youth recreational summer programs offer boys and girls the chance to learn rowing for the first time or to continue to develop their rowing skills.

LTRD offers several youth recreational/developmental summer programs - Summer FUNdamentals and Summer Skills.

Summer FUNdamentals is a foundational skills course where U15 (Middle School) athletes learn and review the basics of sculling in a fun and safe environment.

Summer Skills is for scullers who have completed a learn to row program or who have already sculled recreationally.  In skills development sessions, scullers will continue to develop a deeper understanding of safety, rules of the water, boatwomanship, sculling technique, and fitness.


Both Summer FUNdamentals and Summer Skills include dry land training and educational activities in line with our goal of educating the whole athlete. 

The daily schedule will include warm-ups, rowing instruction and practice (on land or water) and land-based team/strength building activities.  NB: Safety is our number one consideration.  Scullers should be prepared to row on land should conditions prove un-rowable.
