Welcome to Camrowers Rowing Club

Camrowers is a non-competitive, recreational rowing club in Cambridge for over 50s. It offers fun, fitness, friendship and fresh air.

Members row from the Combined Colleges Boathouse in Logan's Way , Chesterton, by permission of the Bursars and boat clubs of Churchill, Selwyn and King's Colleges and the Leys School.

Camrowers began in 2001 as a GP exercise referral scheme jointly funded by the Primary Care Trust and Cambridge City Council. People with medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or mental health problems had a chance to rebuild and maintain fitness.

In 2006 Camrowers club was formed to provide recreational rowing for a wider audience including the Cambridge City Council Forever Active Scheme for the over 50s and the University of the Third Age in Cambridge. Camrowers became a charitable company in 2010. Camrowers is a member of the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association.

The club now has over 90 members, several of whom are over 80 and still rowing.
