Sculling instruction embedded in a traditional camp experience!
As sister organization with the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Hosmer Point is able to offer high-quality sculling instruction in one of the best sculling locations in the North East. We offer three different tracks to experience sculling. Families can choose the best option according to the interest and ability of their child.
Track 1: Sample Sculling
Sculling is offered as an elective activity one-two times per week during one-week and two-week traditional residential camp sessions. During these electives, campers who want to sample sculling for an hour during their time at camp will have an opportunity to try this challenging sport. Campers of any age can sample sculling. Campers will have an opportunity to sign up for sculling after they arrive at camp.
Track 2: Beginner's Sculling Camp
Beginner sculling campers will have sculling instruction for 75 minutes each day during the morning or afternoon focus area period. Perfect for campers who've never tried sculling or who are very new to the sport. Beginner's sculling camps are best suited for campers age 11 - 15. Beginner's sculling camp is offered as part of each of our two-week residential sessions. To sign up, choose your camp session, then select "Add Beginner's Sculling Camp" when you register. There is an additional $200 coaching fee for sculling camp.
Track 3: Intermediate/Advanced Sculling Camp
Intermediate/Advanced sculling campers will have sculling instruction for 75 minutes each day during the morning or afternoon focus area period, as well as occasional supplemental instruction during elective periods, as needed. Intermediate/Advanced camps are perfect for campers who've tried sculling or rowing several times and are excited to learn more as well as those who are already proficient. Intermediate/Advanced sculling camps are best suited for campers age 12- 15. To sign up, choose your camp session, then select "Add Intermediate/Advanced Sculling Camp" when you register. There is an additional $200 coaching fee for sculling camp.
Why scull at Hosmer Point?
We take only eight sculling campers per session to ensure that each child gets personalized instruction from our coaches. With a 75 minute rowing session each day, beginners have time to learn the skills they need to get started in the sport, while intermediate and advanced scullers can progress to new levels. Experienced coaches help each camper reach for their personal best.
All the fun of a traditional summer camp
Sculling campers can choose from all the fun activities Hosmer Point has to offer during 2-3 elective periods and one focus period each day. See how focus and elective periods fit into our daily schedule here. Sculling campers join in all the excitement and community spirit of evening activities, team competitions, and cabin life with our traditional residential campers. At Hosmer Point, there's no need to choose between summer camp and high-quality coaching - we offer them both!
Is HP Sculling Camp the Best Option for My Child?
Because Hosmer Point offers sculling as part of a larger package of summer camp fun and community building, our camps are a great introduction for kids who are new to sculling and want to try out the sport. They're also perfect for more experienced scullers who want a diversity of summer experiences or who benefit from a less intensive or less competitive instructional style than camps which offer sculling as the only activity. Our coaches know how to keep instruction friendly and fun!
Our sister organization, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, offers intensive sculling camps for adults and older teens - just one mile away at the other end of Great Hosmer Pond.
