Join us in 2019!

You'll have an amazing time!

Designed for you

The Camp was created out of a need to provide intensive, high quality coaching to regional junior players wishing to learn and develop their skills in rugby union. There have been thousands of young boys and girls attend over the years, 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.

Parent questionnaire response

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

Parent questionnaire response

What is the camp about?

In the heart of the New England

The Camp is held at the University of New England, in Armidale - the heart of the beautiful NSW Northern Tablelands. Right at the halfway point between Brisbane and Sydney, Armidale is known for its education, amazing gorge country, stunning autumns and comfortable summers.

The camp comes four ways

We provide four different types of camps, depending on the camper's age in 2019 and gender. We have a 2-day camp for our smaller campers, a 4-day camp for our older campers, with the choice of living in and living out, and a 2-day camp for girls .

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.
