Camps are held regularly throughout the year and our latest camp were attended by over 250 players ranging from 6-16 years old.
Types of camps on offer
There are two different types of camps available:
During the summer holidays, Classic Camp 1 runs for a period of up to 6 days and Classic Camps 2 and 3 are for up to 5 day periods. Single days can be booked with discounts applied to the day rate for 2 or more days booked in any one camp. These rates are shown further below.
Each camp holds a 'Bluesticks Award across the junior, intermediate and senior channel, a unique award that recognises the player(s) with developed skills.
Performance camps run over a 2 day period and are suitable for players that have been playing at Junior Academy Centre (JAC) level or above.
