Shiplake College rowing camps for novice and improving rowers prove hugely popular every year, catering for over 50 students per week and giving access to Shiplake College’s enviable fleet of boats, world-class boathouse and our own very experienced and professional coaches.
The five-day residential camps are open to boys and girls, from any school, aged 13 to 18 (i.e those due to be in Years 9 to 13 from September 2024). A typical daily rowing programme would consist of breakfast followed by pilates/stretching prior to heading out on the water. Following the end of the rowing camp itself at 5.00pm, residents will have light activities such as swimming or rest and there will be a programme of evening events after dinner, such as local trips and activities.
There will also be the option to visit the world famous Leander Club for a tour and evening meal. Boarders will be accommodated in single rooms with joint washroom facilities and common areas.
The residential camp option costs £750, with an additional £80 to stay the Sunday night. The camps will run from Monday 29 July to Friday 2 August and Monday 5 to Friday 9 August 2024.
