This year’s camp is again being held at the Freeport Football Rugby Club field on East Settlers Way and starts on
June 23, closing on June 27.
It will again be led by a group of top ranking fully-qualified coaches from the UK, supported by a team of local coaches.
Up to 200 children are being catered for this year and the organizers expect the attendance to be close to that.
Each child is given two full uniforms and other goodies as well as lunch every day, and the chance for a cooling swim at the midday break.
Given the fact they also get 25 hours of top line professional coaching it has to be the best value summer camp in the Bahamas.
Parents can get registration forms (attached below) and also register their children at Town and Country, Yellow Pine Street; Animale, Port Lucaya; or The Wellness Centre off Coral Road.
Uniforms will be given out at the Rugby Club from 2pm until 4pm on Sunday June 22.
