SCC SUMMER Learn-to-Row CREW CAMPS
Looking for a summer camp that will be fun and challenging to body & mind?
SPACE COAST CREW SUMMER CAMPS are outdoors, fun, challenging, and a great opportunity to get middle school & high school students on the water this summer!
Have you heard that Space Coast Crew has a fantastic, year-long rowing sports team in Brevard from our current team members? It's true! We have a great organization, fantastic student rowers with supportive families and dedicated coaches who all work together to support our team. While our individual student rowers and our rowing teams are highly successful in competitive rowing regattas each year, our kids also learn work ethic, sportsmanship and character, healthy lifestyle choices, managing time, and other valuable life skills. Maybe most importantly, our rowers learn to work together, support each other, and often make life-long friendships. As a Club Team, our rowers come from middle and high schools all around Brevard and because of that, they make friends throughout Brevard also.
It can be hard as a parent to know where to start or how to approach your student's possible interest in a new sport. Our SUMMER CREW CAMPS are a great way for students to check us out, see what the sport is about, or just get outdoors and on the water during summer break!
Who May Attend SCC Summer Camps? We operate week-long Learn-to-Row Camps for ALL Brevard County students in rising grades 6-12 from our boathouse at the Oars and Paddles Park, Indian Harbour Beach, FL.

All High School Camps take place in the mornings 7:45 am - 9:45 am and Middle School Camps are 5:30 - 7:30 pm Monday through Friday (subject to change). All Camps are led by SCC coaches with participation by current team members.

FREE Learn-to-Row SATURDAY CLINICS
Thanks to everyone who joined us and Learned-toRow in 2018!
Registration for 2019 Learn-to-Row Clinics will be open in April of 2019.
Did You Know? We also hold a few FREE Learn-to-Row Saturday Clinics each year!
While our Learn-to-Row summer camps are for youth only, our Learn-to-Row Saturday FREE Clinics are open to both youth and adults at Oars and Paddles Park! During our Free Learn-to-Row Saturday Clinics, interested youth (rising 6th-12th grade) AND adults who would like to learn more about rowing may expect:
- To check-in and verify waiver
- A welcome tour of the boat house and a description of the sport
- A demonstration of proper rowing technique on an ERG (rowing machine) with a chance to try an ERG
- PLUS an opportunity to go out onto the water for 15 to 20 minutes (with experienced rowers and coaches) for a live experience of what rowing is like on our Indian River Lagoon
- This experience takes roughly between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours depending on boat availability and volume of attendees.
Those attending our Free Clinics will get to talk to our current 'student' Space Coast Crew team rowers and coaches - and also to current 'adult' rowing club members from the Row Brevard team. This is a great quick experience for students and adults who may be considering joining a rowing team, parents who are curious, and adult community members and friends and families of our current team members who wonder what it's like to row!
How do we determine the order of attendees getting on boats in the water? Clinic participation is based on both arrival order at the Saturday events and our best efforts to appropriately fill the seats of each boat with a mix of experienced rowers and clinic attendees. When you arrive at Oars & Paddles Park, look for the table near the boathouse to check in and let us know you've arrived and check to make sure your waivers are complete. Typical time investment is 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on wait times for boats.
