July - August
Youth Sculling Camp
This is designed for high school rowers, or 14-18 year-olds, who'd like to learn to row or improve their skills. In Italy or Vermont, it is the perfect opportunity for enthusiastic sweep rowers to learn to scull ahead of summer club racing, or even seat selections. It is also the ideal way to get your athletic kid into a sport that will truly widen his or her horizons: never before have so many scholarships been open to rowers! The experience can be extended to up to 3 weeks for kids who come to Tuscany and want to combine their rowing with a one-on-a-kind foreign immersion experience. Each teen will be paired with an Italian rower of the same sex and age (more or less!) so that he or she can truly experience the cooking, social life, and rowing environment of our Italian rowers.
TUSCANY: The original, the best: this is where the concept of "rowing vacations" was born!
As rowers we always sought to wet our oars wherever we traveled, and as Tuscans this request from others often came to our doorstep. Rowers are well-traveled, curious, and easy-going, and it is our great joy to be able to share our rowing haunts with others.
We train each day on our secluded rowing basin, go for a row under the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, and absorb the true sense of Tuscan culture. We help our guests infuse their lives and their rowing with the patience and harmony of the Tuscan culture: not just admire its churches and its artwork, but understand how a people can achieve such wealth.
Every day we'll be on the water, working on perfecting the essentials of our rowing technique. Depending on your choice of Tuscan experience, this will be shared with daily immersions into the surrounding towns, mountains, and lookout spots, and accompanied by terrific food.
The activities and experiences chosen are based upon what we personally enjoy doing and seeing and are different for every group. Showing our guests what we love is a wonderful excuse to see them ourselves!
