Looking for a fun summer activity or something to help keep the entire family more physically active? Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association (BSRA), located at 405 Ohio St. on the Buffalo River, is offering a Try It Free Day in June and a variety of rowing camps all summer long!
Try It Free Day, open to guests of all ages, will take place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 10. Come out and see for yourself if a summer on the water is right for you!
Want to continue learning? BSRA will offer nine weeks of summer rowing opportunities to middle and high school students who have little to no rowing experience. Each one-week camp has a different theme so participants can continue learning without starting from scratch each week. Full-day options will also be offered during select weeks.
Following are descriptions of the summer rowing camps:
• Learn to Row 101 is an introductory program for participants who have never rowed before.
• Learn to Row 102 is a little more advanced and perfect for participants 11 to 16 years of age who have previously completed at least one week of Learn to Row 101. Morning or full-day options are available for Learn to Row 101 and 102.
• During Sculling Week, participants ages 12 to 16 will learn how to row in singles, doubles and quads.
• Learn to Row & Conditioning Week is for incoming high school students only. This is the most advanced option of the summer Youth Learn to Row program. It will be more intense in terms of land and water exercises and workouts are done at a quicker pace. Participants are strongly encouraged to join a Learn to Row and/or Sculling Week program prior to joining this activity. For ages 13 to 16, this is an excellent program to join to get a sneak peek at what a high school rowing program would be like.
• Rowing Camp is a full-day program consisting of Learn to Row 101 and 102 with additional land activities such as games and relays in Father Conway Park, learning how to rig a rowing shell, team-building exercises, and learning about the history and ecology of the Buffalo River. This program is specially designed for ages 11 to 16.
Participants in full-day camps should bring their own lunch and a reusable water bottle; BSRA will provide a fruit snack option each day.
BSRA also offers Adult and Inclusive Learn to Row programs, as well as corporate and team-building activities.
