B-CC Crew Summer Rowing Academy
B-CC Crew’s 2021 Summer Rowing Academy
B-CC Crew is excited to announce the seventh season of its summer rowing camp for rising seventh, eighth and ninth graders.
Our program will target the fundamentals of rowing, including but not limited to: proper rowing technique, effective racing strategy, good sportsmanship, and equipment management. Each week, athletes will start on a more stable barge-style platform and progress to Resolute racing shells.
COVID-19 protocols including masking, hand sanitizing, social distancing and temperature checks will be followed.
BASIC SESSION DATES:
Session 1: Monday June 28th to Friday July 2nd, 9 AM to 3 PM
Session 2: Monday July 5th to Friday July 9th, 9 AM to 3 PM
Cost: $400 per week.
(Need-based scholarships for B-CC students are available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.)
Pick up and Drop Off: Campers must be dropped off and picked up at Thompson Boat Center, 2900 Virginia Ave NW in Georgetown. Specific drop off instructions will be provided to registrants.
Lunch: Campers should bring their own unrefrigerated lunches daily. Coaches will bring the group to some beautiful spots along the river to eat.
Coaching Staff: Victoria Reuter, B-CC’s Novice Girls' Coach, will lead the camp. B-CC Crew has won many titles, including Maryland State Championship and the Washington Metropolitan Interscholastic Rowing Association (WMIRA). In 2019, our boys’ boat was 18th in the nation at the Head of the Charles (and placed second overall for public schools) and our girls’ boat won the C final at the USRowing Youth Nationals in Sarasota, FL (13th in the nation).
Select athletes from the B-CC Varsity Boys’ and Girls’ squads will assist Victoria.

"The summer camp at BCC Crew was a great experience. I learned proper form, how to be conservative with my energy while rowing, and the mechanics of rowing. For people that are interested in joining the BCC Crew team or are just interested in crew, this summer program is a great introduction and will teach them a lot." ~ Gabriel Kirk
"I liked crew camp because I got to meet the coaches and try something new and fun, and I really love it now." ~Madeline May
