McCallie & GPS Rowing Camp

Once again this summer McCallie will be hosting our learn to row camp for rising 6-12 grade boys and girls. 

There is no experience necessary and campers will be instructed by McCallie head coach Sean McCourt and the McCallie rowing staff. Coach McCourt is a nationally recognized coach who has won and put boats on the medal stand at the US Rowing Youth National Championships, the Scholastic Nationals, and the Head of the Charles among other races. This fun camp is designed to teach the fundamentals of rowing, allow athletes to have a relaxed platform to learn and make friends, and to learn what being on a rowing team is all about.

Please contact Sean McCourt at with specific questions about the program. We will be happy to answer your questions about the camps and give you the necessary information to enroll today!
