The University of Wisconsin offers two distinct sessions of Women’s Rowing Camps: Beginner & Experienced. Please read the camp descriptions closely to decide which camp is better for your skill set. While both camps are open to any girls in grades 9-12, the first camp is a beginner camp, while the second camp is better suited for experienced rowers. If you have any questions as to which camp may be a better fit please email Nancy LaRocque at NLL@athletics.wisc.edu.

ALL 2016 CAMPS ARE NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!

If you are interested in receiving information about specific camps please email badgercamps@athletics.wisc.edu.
Please indicate the sport(s) of interest in the subject line and we will notify you as updated information becomes available.

This is an incredible opportunity to try your hand at one of the premier Olympic and NCAA sports with no experience required.  Rowing is fun, team orientated, and a great way to get noticed by colleges.  Most collegiate rowers never rowed in high school; rather, they played volleyball, swimming, basketball, hockey, soccer, cross country, etc and used their athleticism to earn a spot on a varsity collegiate crew.
