Relax and chill or #GetOutMore and have an action-packed weekend!

Last year's revamped BIG Summer Camp went down a storm and so in 2019, we'll be returning to Worthing for BIG Summer Camp in August!

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 you Bank Holiday Weekend. We don't just plan the outdoor activities - of which there will be a great variety, including cycling, watersports, 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 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 with entertainment including a DJ revving up the dancefloor on the Saturday and Sunday evening. 



Don't forget to order your packed lunches to take out on your day's activities with you! You can pick them up from the clubhouse each morning. Order here:
