Calm Waters Rowing Camp Schedule

A typical day at Calm Waters consists of three on-the-water rows, one video session and one meal. In short, row, eat, row, eat, row, eat, sleep.

In more detail, it looks like this:

7:00 a.m.  On the first day of camp, meet at the Inn for coffee and light snacks, introductions and video before heading to the lake for the first row. All other days, we will meet at the lake at 7:00 a.m.
9:30 a.m. Breakfast
10:15 a.m. Video review session
12:00 p.m. Second Row, again begun with a talk and demonstration on the dock before getting on the water
2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. On your own for lunch, rest and relaxation
5:00 p.m. Third Row, no talk or demo this time, just a chance to continue to work on what was discussed earlier in the day


Our 3-day weekend sessions will begin at 7:00 a.m. Friday (meeting at the Inn) and finish after two rows on Sunday at around 2:30 p.m. Our 4-day sessions will begin at 7:00 a.m. Monday (again, meeting at the Inn) and finish after two rows on Thursday at around 2:30 p.m. Each session will still offer the same number of total rows as before: 8 for a 3-day session and 11 for a 4-day. After the first morning row, we will return to the Inn for breakfast and video, followed by a 2nd row. We will have a break after the 2nd row and will reconvene at the lake at 5:00 p.m. for our 3rd row of the day (excluding the final day which will end after the 2nd row).

On the first day of every camp, we will provide coffee, tea, juice and light snacks when we meet at the Inn at 7:00 am. After introductions, we’ll show some video which will highlight our coaching style before heading to the lake for our first row. We have a lot to fit in the first day so the mid-day break may not be quite as long as listed in the schedule above.
