Camps consistently draw more than 100 enthusiastic rowers participate in sessions starting at the end of December and into March, when the coaches begin giving camps and clinics around the US. Depending on the course of the pandemic in 2021, AARC will announce the resumption of their international rowing travel “camps.”
