About the Program

For over 10 years Seattle has hosted the top juniors in the North West for elite level coaching camps. In the past, these elite camps have been called the North West Development Camp, Seattle Area Rowing Association (SARA) and are now Washington Rowing Camps. 


These camps continue to be coached by Division-I coaches, who have led boats to Pac-12 Conference Championships and IRA Championships. 


The camp covers a multitude of topics ranging from technical assessments and feedback on the water and the erg, to information on training, nutrition and recovery, as well as insight into the recruiting process. Campers are able to use the equipment, get to row and compete on the same waterway Division-I rowers and other Olympians train on daily.
