Community Foundation Summer holiday camps

Bristol Bears Community Foundation is delighted to announce a blockbuster summer of Player Development Holiday Camps, with 17 days of fun-filled rugby at eight clubs across the region.

Included are two of the ever-popular ‘girls only’ camps at Avonmouth Old Boys RFC and Weston-super-Mare RFC, as well as first trips to Nailsea and Backwell RFC and Wellington RFC.

The Foundation will also visit Dings Crusaders, Old Reds, Hornets and Old Bristolians throughout the summer holidays – and you can book your place now by clicking here.

The camps consist of a games-based combination of technical input and fun and incorporate a level of contact progress through touch, grab and full contact.

Away from the playing field, the camps also offer rugby lifestyle workshops, including nutritional and fitness advice.

Each and every camp is evaluated and fully endorsed by coaches at the very top of the sport.  

All coaches hold PRL Minimum Standards qualifications – including minimum RFU Level 1, Enhanced DBS, Safeguarding & Protecting Young People, and First Aid.
