B-CC Crew Summer Rowing Academy

B-CC Crew’s 2020 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. Students from all schools are welcome to attend.


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.  



Session 1:  Monday July 13th to Thursday July 16th, 9 AM to 3 PM

Session 2:  Monday July 20th to Thursday July 23rd, 9 AM to 3 PM

Session 3:  Monday July 27nd to Thursday July 30th, 9 AM to 3 PM


(NOTE: Camp does not meet on Fridays)


Cost:  $350 per week.

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. Cold drinks can be purchased at the machines in the boathouse, and the coaches will bring the group to some beautiful spots along the river to eat.


Coaching Staff:  The Dan Engler, B-CC’s Head Coach and Head Men’s Coach, will lead the camp. In his tenure at B-CC, Dan's varsity squads have won many titles, including Maryland State Championship titles, and the Washington Metropolitan Interscholastic Rowing Association (WMIRA).  They have also qualified for semifinals of the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, and have been finalists at the SRAA Nationals.  


Select athletes from the B-CC Varsity Boys’ and Girls’ squads will assist Dan.

Camp Testimonials


"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
