Camp Cost: $1050 Register at the Bottom of the page.

Three sessions:
Session I July 20 - 24, 2014


Session II July 27 - 31, 2014


Camper's spots will be secured when we receive a completed online registration and full payment. Spots will be allocated on a first come – first served basis. Once all sessions are full, campers may opt to join a waiting list for their desired session. Campers will be taken off the wait list in the order their payment was received.

The North Country Rowing Camp is for rowers and coxswains of all experience levels, ages 15-18. Both boys and girls will experience a curriculum designed to advance each camper's technical skills and racing abilities through highly individualized instruction. Each camp boat will have its own coach. Campers will enjoy two on-the-water rows daily, as well as tank sessions, video review, and coached discussions on topics including nutrition, physiology, and the college recruiting process. Coxswains will benefit from both on the water and off the water instruction in dedicated daily coxswain clinics. Our exceptional staff of experienced collegiate coaches will help all campers to reach a new level in a fun yet challenging environment.


The North Country Rowing Camp is set in the picturesque college town of Hanover, N.H., home to Dartmouth College. Campers will train out of the Friends of Dartmouth Crew Boathouse, the on-campus indoor rowing tank, and strength training facilities. The beautiful Connecticut River, home course to the Dartmouth Crews, offers twenty miles of calm, rowable water. Campers will eat and sleep in Dartmouth College dormitories which are a short 5-minute walk from the boathouse. The green mountains and mild temperatures of the scenic Upper River Valley provide an ideal setting for a summer camp.
