What We Do


Northeast Rowing Center is a six-day overnight rowing camp for high school age boys and girls located in Raymond, Maine.

The Master Coaches selected to coach at the Northeast Rowing Center are professional coaches and come from the country's most respected and successful programs. Their experience is extensive both nationally and internationally, and their accomplishments are numerous. Rowers have praised not only their knowledge and teaching skills, but also their friendliness.

The facilities at the beautiful Camp Nashoba North in Raymond, Maine match the high quality of the instruction provided. During camp, swimming, tennis, volleyball, basketball, tetherball, soccer, gaga ball and ultimate frisbee are available for use daily. Nashoba North provides the perfect facility for rowing. Crescent Lake is three miles long and offers the serenity that will enhance each person's experience.

The Center's quality organization and teaching plan is administered by Barb Grudt. Barb coached successful programs at the international, collegiate, and high school level. The program finds the right balance between rowing instruction and free time to relax or participate in other activities. Each day consists of two instructional workouts on the water, video review, functional mobility sessions, coaching on the erg, and an evening clinic to cap the day's instruction.

Video taping and review sessions are scheduled throughout the week by the Master Coaches. Six video review systems assure ample access for needed video analysis. At mid-week, an afternoon break is scheduled to allow participants free time to pursue an off-camp excursion.

Master Coaches are assigned to a rowing group for the first half of the week and then after mid-week break they are reassigned. This gives each rower the opportunity to obtain direct instruction from two Master Coaches, but gives each coach sufficient time to develop coaching continuity.

The Center emphasizes individual instruction. Even though rowers are in eights, Master Coaches utilize drills and rowing by pairs, fours and sixes to pinpoint individual strengths and weaknesses and to make individual corrections.
