After a year out, OutdoorLads Big Summer Camp is back for 2018 and this year we are heading to West Sussex to Worthing Rugby Club, situated between Chichester and Brighton on the South coast. 

Where this camp differs from most of the smaller camps we organise is that we don't just plan the outdoor activities - 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, food and drink.

We have exclusive use of the site so it makes it much easier to get to know other members as you can be sure that everyone you meet is a member of OutdoorLads (or Rugby Club staff).

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 our setlist of daytime activities 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 on the Saturday and Sunday evening. 



You'll find all the events by selecting the BIG EVENTS icon on the OutdoorLads homepage or by following the links below. Events go live on the morning of Saturday 28th July 2018 at 10am for Saturday events and 11am for Sunday events.
