A rowing program for beginners, the Chicago Youth Rowing Camps teach the essentials of sweep rowing (one oar per person) through both land-training on rowing machines and on-the-water training in 8-person boats.
The focus is on basic rowing skills and terms, with an emphasis on learning how to row together as a crew on the Chicago River.
The boathouse floats in the Chicago River just west of the Old Navy parking lot.
