2019 Youth Summer Camps
Treasure Coast Rowing Club’s Head Coach Stefanie Falkner and her experienced staff are ready to challenge new and experienced rowers to reach their potential in both sweep and sculling.
Learn to Row Camp
TCRC’s rowing camps are designed to teach and improve fundamental rowing technique, mental aspects of racing & training, and overall strength & flexibility. All boys and girls entering 6 - 12th grade with an interest in joining the winning tradition of TCRC are welcome.
The camp will be held at our beautiful rowing facility on the shores of the calm St. Lucie River in Palm City. Our boathouse has weight equipment and Concept II rowing machines for land training, bathroom including a shower. Our address is 771 SW 28th St, Palm City, FL 34991.
