PCR is excited to announce we are welcoming new student-athletes to our Summer Learn-to-Row Camps! Enrollment for our Summer Learn to Row Camps is open through May 1st! During camp, you will learn basic rowing technique and receive a general introduction to fitness, nutrition, and the sport of rowing. Summer camps run from 9:30 to 12:30 Monday to Friday and are open to anyone in grades 7 through 12 in a Philadelphia public or charter school. All camps are COMPLETELY FREE and PCR provides students with daily SEPTA passes and snacks. 
Dates for summer learn-to-row include: 
Session 1: June 19th to June 30th (for returning middle school participants)
Session 2: July 10th to July 28th (for NEW participants)
Session 3: July 31st to August 18th (for NEW participants)

PLEASE NOTE: Space in our summer camps is limited and priority will be given to students who have not previously participated in a PCR program.

Proof of swimming ability is requested for participation in our summer programs but is not required. Students who cannot swim two lengths of the pool or tread water for two minutes will be asked to wear a life jacket when they are on the water. All abilities are welcome to join! Due to continued COVID-19 restrictions, swim test and lesson dates are still to be announced.
