Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff live in the dormitories with the campers and participate in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
Nike Rugby Camps does not provide transportation to and from airports, bus depots or train stations. The packet we send to registered campers in the spring offers suggestions on shuttle services for each specific camp.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the spring.
For those campers traveling from a distance, we offer an early arrival the evening of Sunday, July 27th. The fee is $90 and includes lodging in the Cal dorms, dinner that night, and breakfast the following morning. We’ll have a staff member living in the dorms to provide supervision.
Important Note: For questions regarding the camp registration process, please contact Nike Rugby Camps at 1-800-645-3226. For all other camp-related questions, please contact Cal Rugby Director of Operations, Jerry Figone, at 510-643-1971
