Rowing Day Camps (with SUP)
Beginner and Intermediate, Kids aged 11 to 17
This summer get your child out on the water at an Ottawa New Edinburgh (ONEC) Rowing Summer Day Camps (with Stand-up Paddleboarding)!
Kids will have fun learning a new sport (or improve on the skills learned last year), discover the amazing Ottawa River, and make new friends! Day campers are taught by trained coaches. Both programs provide achievement certificates.
For rowing and kayaking, ONEC generally accepts a maximum of 20 campers at a time, so reserve your child’s spot now!
ONEC day camps are offered from July to August. Register your child for a full week, two full weeks or more.
ONEC’s central hub is the tennis pavilion, which is located on Tennis Crescent, south of the parkway—this is where all campers are dropped off and picked up at the start and end of the day.
Washrooms with showers are inside, along with a small canteen for lunchtime treats. Outside is a grassy yard with picnic tables.
Wrapping around the pavilion are the tennis courts, and across the road is the beautiful boathouse where sailing kayaking and rowing camps take place. Unfortunately, the Boathouse will not be in use this Summer 2023 as it remains under construction. However, all water-sport camps will take place from the shore, east of the Boathouse.
Rowing Camp Program
Rowing Adventures - Day camp ages: 11 to 17.
Participants learn sculling is rowing with two oars. Scullers move quickly on the water. This is a symmetrical fitness sport which can be practised for life.
Learn to scull (LTS) teaches basic skills of stroke technique, boat handling, water safety, and balance. LTS uses Row Canada’s Journey 1 and Journey 2 (supplemented by the new Row Ontario ROAD program). Journey 1 takes about two weeks in the mornings, while Journey 2 normally takes an additional two weeks of mornings.
You are taught in small boats as recommended by Rowing Canada Aviron.
The week will end with a Friday fun excursion, e.g. Rideau Falls or Kettle Island, in a coxed quad, weather permitting.
Participants who achieve all the rowing skills will receive certificates at the end of day camps.
Rowing program campers also participate in Stand-up Paddleboarding activities.
SUP Adventures - Day camp ages: 11 - 17
Participants of the Rowing and Kayaking camps also have the chance to learn basic skills and have fun on Stand-up Paddleboards (SUPs). Campers improve their balance and coordination while perfecting the strokes and playing camp games.
The Ottawa New Edinburgh Club offers all you could possibly want from a summer camp. We have a team of dedicated, qualified and enthusiastic instructors, beautiful facilities, and a safe and friendly environment. We offer a wide variety of games, sports and activities all with a fun small-camp feel.
