2021 Registration Now Open!!!
Our Youth rowing camps are open to youth aged 12 to 17. This is an excellent introduction to the sport of rowing! Participants will work on developing their balance, confidence, flexibility, and strength along with teamwork and leadership skills. Our camps operate in a safe and fun environment created by our Camp Coaches and volunteers.
The Don Rowing Club has responded to the COVID-19 global pandemic by following the Province of Ontario and the City of Mississauga Public Health Guidance on Day Camps. We will be implementing the guidelines set forth by adapting our camp outline. Youth participants will be rowing in single shells and learning the basics of sculling (two oars) which allows for physical distancing. Our Youth camper parents will be required to confirm a personal health assessment on behalf of their children each morning prior to joining the camp for that day. The questionnaire will include the approved Peel Public Health questions such as having any symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone displaying symptoms will be asked to remain home.
We will also work with ergs on the terrace.
