The overnight camp includes key fundamental drills, team strategies, match play, meals, housing, and evening activities. The day camp (8:00am - 4:00pm) includes all rugby instruction and lunch. Day campers will be dropped off and picked up at the end of each day at the Stanford University Rugby fields.
Check-In and Check-Out
Check-in takes place from 8:00am - 9:00am on the first day of camp. Meet at the Steuber Rugby Stadium, with your luggage. Come dressed ready to play as the first practice will start directly after check-in. After the first practice session overnight campers will check into the dorms. Check-out takes place at 1:00pm on the last day of camp at the Steuber Rugby Stadium. Parents are invited to watch a scrimmage and brief closing ceremony on the last day of camp before check-out. The scrimmage will start at 10:30am.
Please note there will be no early arrivals, as dormitory accommodation is not available the night before camp starts.
