The Camp

Comes in three flavours

We provide three different types of camps. We have a 2-day camp for our younger campers (8-10), and a 4-day camp for our older campers (11-16), with the choice of living in and living out.

Girls and boys participate together for ages 8-13. We are proud to offer a specific Camp for girls for ages 14-16.

All options are open to boys and girls and all rugby experience levels welcome.

Parents are very welcome to spectate and chat with the coaches. We have many coaches, thanks to our support from Australian Rugby, so parents are not required to stay and supervise their child, or required for the coaching.

* Accommodation is The Armidale School. Boys and girls are accommodated in separate buildings. Campers will stay is a dormitory-style accommodation.

Recent visitors to the Camp

The Camp benefits greatly by the support of the NSW Waratahs and their development officers. Our campers are taught exactly the same up-to-date strategies and techniques as the professional players. We also receive a couple of NSW Waratah celebrities each year.

What people say ...

I must say that we loved it!!!! My son and I are still on a high and will return next year. The coaches were great, he learnt so much and it was all confidence building.

They [the coaches] were supportive and more than approachable for both the girls and parents watching. Very impressed by their dedication.

Great camp. Had a wonderful time and learnt a lot. Will be back next year!
