Camps are spread around the region to engage and inspire as many youngsters as possible across Gwent. Three two-day camps are running which are suitable for all ages 6-14. As a new introduction for summer 2017 two one-day ‘all girls’ camps will also run.
Interactive and enjoyable sessions give the opportunity for the children to develop essential rugby skills and techniques through a range of drills, skills and games. Camps provide a fun, safe and engaging learning environment for all abilities from first timers to competent players. The camps aim to put a smile on the faces of all participants, as they build confidence and friendships.
Children who sign up to the camps will have the chance to meet their heroes as the Dragons squad will be taking part in an exclusive training session on the second afternoon of each camp. Dragons stars will also meet the children after the session and sign autographs. A Welsh international star will also visit each camp.
