You’re as tough as woodpecker lips.

Designed for you

The Camp was created born out of a need to provide intensive quality coaching to regional juniors wishing to learn the game and to develop their skills in Rugby Union. There have been thousands of young boys and girls attend, with over 98% satisfaction rating every year.

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.

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.
