2022 Summer Rowing Programs

The Foundry offers a boat load of programs for you to check out this summer. Please check out the programs out so I do not need to feel like I am typing a bunch of words to make this page seem longer than it needs to. Someone please help before I make any more awful puns.

Learn To Row Camps

The Foundry is a  local non-profit organization located in the flats of Cleveland. Our mission is to transform the lives of Cleveland’s youth through access to the sports of rowing and sailing.


Learn to row this summer on the Cuyahoga River at the Foundry. During our camps, middle and high school students will learn the basics of rowing, build fitness, discover and experience Cleveland's waterways and even conduct experiments  in a safe and fun environment led by our skilled instructors. Enjoy the best views of Cleveland and beat the heat by learning to row this summer at the Foundry.

Our summer youth rowing program is open to students in 6th - 12th grades. Any questions regarding program selection can be directed to the coaching staff at foundryrowing@clevelandfoundry.org.


The Foundry provides instruction by a certified coach, professionally maintained boats, insurance, safety fleet, safety gear and administrative support.


For those first-time rowers who wish to discover the sport of rowing, the Foundry offers a half day Introduction to Rowing camp during the first week of each Learn to Row session.  This instructional camp is designed to familiarize the new rower with the waterfront and provide an introduction to the sport and fundamental rowing skills.   Participants will learn in our campus classroom, state-of-the art indoor rowing tanks and on the water.  The camp takes place Monday through Friday at the Foundry.
