Summer 2018

Dates: July 23rd - August 2nd

We will train Monday through Thursday from approximately 8:00 am - 11:30 am at Robert Gillin Boathouse on Kelly Drive in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


One of the main goals of ErgKarma ~ Summer 2018 will be increasing your fitness standards in preparation for returning to your Fall program, as well as lowering your 2000 meter score to help you get into the boat or program you want to be in.  Therefore, daily training and technique on the ergs will be prioritized over this 3-week camp.  We provide a safe, supportive, judgment-free environment where rowers can work on their individual goals without criticism or negative energy.  We are all on our own journey, so if you fear the erg, are unhappy with your current erging performance, or simply want to lower your 2k score this summer - you are taking the right first step by joining us. 

"Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting yourself closer to where you want to be tomorrow."
