ECBC holds a training camp for students twice a year, once at the start of the Hilary term, and another at the start of Trinity term. They usually run from Thursday of -1th week to the Monday of 0th week.
The training camps are designed to be all inclusive with a combination of training and social events for everyone, with the aim of everyone finding their own level to push themselves whilst having a really fun time rowing and enjoying Oxford before the stress of term starts!
For members hoping to make senior 1st VIII crews, this is also your opportunity to show your commitment and get in a solid weeks training and practice before term so that you are in finest form to smash out bumps in the respective Torpids and Summer Eights bumps races.
Usually held in Oxford to minimise cost, training camps have also been held in other locations for a fun change of seen, though usually member’s are put up in other peoples houses if they are looking to save on paying college rent, making for a really fun and social experience!
