Avizacqua Sculling Training Camps Your Olympic Experience

Experience over 50 kilometers of calm water and the daily life of an Olympian. We aim to offer you the chance to learn with the best in the sport whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Maranhão reservoir.


Our camps run over 4 days, with 7 water sessions, 2 to 3 video sessions and a motivational talk lead by our Olympian. To make sure that you have a great time we work in small groups, with a maximum of 8 athletes per camp. Each water session will give you the opportunity to scull where the top teams in the world train and be coached in a one to four ratio. We will also introduce you to some of the local culture via a wine tasting experience at one of the many alentejo vineyards in the Maranhão region. The hotel restaurant embraces the culinary tastes of the region.
