ARC is a not-for-profit organization that fosters interest in, and provides opportunity for, rowing in New York's Capital District. The club offers programs for adults, as well as high school and middle school students. Programs include competitive, noncompetitive, and recreational rowing, Adult Learn to Row, junior introductory and developmental rowing camps.
