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

Once again we're hitting 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 with entertainment including a DJ revving up the dancefloor on the Saturday and Sunday evening. 


If you'd like to bring a small caravan, motorhome or campervan, please make sure to book a hardstanding area (£10) as space is limited. 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.

If you're new to camping, or are travelling light, you can rent a tent for the weekend for £15.

If looking to car-share check out our ride sharing link - see location below for more details!


All our events across the weekend are listed below.  All meeting points are at the camp, and we'll advise the meeting points via a whiteboard when you check in. These will be by the outside bar if it's nice weather, and in the clubhouse if it's less nice. If there's no price listed below, it's a free event led by one of our lovely volunteer leaders.
