Rowing Camps & Clinics
All Princeton University Sports Camp participants are required to provide copies of immunization records from a physician’s office or a valid medical and/or religious exemption from immunization. All campers must provide records that satisfy the immunization schedule set forth at Immunization of Pupils in School, N.J.A.C. 8:57-4 or provide an official letter from a physician indicating that immunization is in progress. Your camper WILL NOT be allowed to participate without the appropriate medical records.
The online registration system works best with Firefox and Chrome.
Due to high demand, many camps fill prior to the registration deadline and early registration is recommended. Once a camp reaches capacity or the registration deadline, we are unable to add additional campers. Walk-up registrations are not accepted for any camp or clinic.
In the event a camp does not reach capacity, the following registration deadlines apply:
- Overnight Camps close 2 days prior to the camp.
- Day Camps and Clinics close at 11:59pm the night before camp.

The Princeton High Performance Rowing Camps are designed for experienced male and female high school rowers who want to enhance their rowing ability. Four sessions offer you the unique chance to experience what it’s like to be a collegiate rower in the middle of a racing season.
Lori Dauphiny (Openweight Women), Marty Crotty (Lightweight Men), Matt Smith (Heavyweight Men), and Paul Rassam (Lightweight Women), lead a distinguished lineup of coaches that will provide specific technical and physiological instruction utilizing Princeton’s state-of-the-art facilities. Armed with the same knowledge, systematic approach, and maybe even a few of the tricks that have won our coaching staff dozens of Eastern Sprints, IRA, NCAA, and World Championship gold medals, you will become a better rower that will be tougher to beat.
During the 20 years of the Princeton HP Rowing Camps we have fine-tuned the elements and structure of the camps into something that we think is the best summer rowing camp format in the business. A rower’s daily routine will include two-a-day workouts on Lake Carnegie, introductions to effective ergometer workouts and testing methods, core strength training, technical sessions in the rowing tanks, and guest speakers. Speakers will cover a wide range of topics, including nutrition best practices, building better strategies for ergometer testing, the experience of rowing in the Olympics, and how to navigate the ever changing recruiting process. Coaches are available for daily one-on-one sessions to discuss how personal training and technical improvements will enable each rower to achieve his or her goals. In addition, each rower will receive at least 60 minutes of direct video analysis and feedback during the week. The final session of each camp will feature a six boat race, where all campers will have the opportunity to demonstrate the skills learned throughout the camp in a race environment. Parents will be able to spectate from coaching launches.
All of our camps offer coxswain-specific instruction. Coxswains are separated into their own group for daily instructional sessions. In addition, they are assigned to a boat for on-the-water training and races. We can proudly say, without a doubt, that the Princeton rowing camps are not only the best camps for rowers, but also for coxswains.

All camps and clinics will be held on the Princeton University campus, one of the most beautiful and historic campuses in the world. Campers will utilize the Shea Rowing Center - home of the Princeton Tigers and a training facility for the U.S. Men's and Women's National Teams. The center includes moving water rowing tanks, a strength training room and ergometer room. It is located on Carnegie Lake, a protected body of water, 3 miles long with a 4 lane buoyed race course. Overnight campers will reside in Princeton University dormitories and dine in one of the school's dining halls. All dormitories will have adult supervision with a minimum of a 10:1 camper to counselor ratio plus a Health Director.
** Camp dorms do not have air conditioning. We recommend you bring a fan with you to camp. **
