The University of Wisconsin Men’s Rowing Camp is a six-day introduction to competitive collegiate rowing.  Campers will be instructed on the basic skills required to succeed at a top rowing college.  Our campers represent a variety of athletic backgrounds.  Many have never rowed before, while some have extensive high school experience.  We will tailor the camp experience to fit the needs of the individuals. The camp will be staffed by University of Wisconsin coaches and oarsmen.  The staff/camper ratio will be kept low to ensure safety and individual attention. Health services staff will be on call to offer assistance.  All sessions of Badger Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.
