Join us on the South Coast over the August Bank Holiday Weekend for BIG Summer Camp!

Taking place over the August bank holiday weekend, we'll be enjoying great activities and entertainment, and while away the Summer days with a relaxed, chilled out vibe on site and great fun with friends, old and new. 

Situated between Chichester and Brighton on the South coast, our BIG Summer Camp is the perfect way to spend your Bank Holiday Weekend. We don't just plan the outdoor activities - of which there will be a great variety, including cycling, water sports, and a range of walks - we also bring everything together for you in one place. So not only will there be plenty of daytime outdoor activities but also evening entertainment, and the comfortable clubhouse serves a range of meals, snacks, and of course, drinks! 

You can be sure that everyone you meet is a member of OutdoorLads (or Rugby Club staff) as we have exclusive use of the site. 

We've a range of activities in and around our the coastline and the South Downs, for you to do as much (or as little) as you desire! We will have a range of day walks and paid activities on offer, alongside which we also offer evening entertainment plus food and drink throughout the day. 

In the evening, the bar is open until the early hours, and we'll have a themed disco Saturday and Sunday night!

We'll have a series of walks, paddle sports, and depending on leader availability, possibly some cycling!

On Sunday, join us for Sports Day from late afternoon (5pm ish), on the main pitch by the outside bar! Expect lots of silly team games and game of rounders!


If you'd like to bring a small caravan, motorhome or campervan, you'll need to book a space for it. If there is more than one person staying in it, you each need to book a place on the event, but only one booking for the caravan / campervan needs to be made. Please note that as this venue is not ordinarily a campsite, these are not serviced pitches, and there's no chemical waste disposal on-site - it all needs to go home with you. 

We have some tents available for hire too - again you'll need to book to reserve one!


Food can be ordered at the bar all weekend, including packed lunches which will be available for pre-booking before the event.

New Members

New Members attending BIG Summer Camp alone are invited to join the New Member Camp, where one of our friendly Leaders will help you settle in on the first evening, and introduce you to other members. We'll message attendees when we're ready for people to sign up!
