Another successful week of summer camps has been completed after we visited High Wycombe & Old Reigatians Rugby Clubs last week. After every week of summer, so far, we have been delighted by the attitude and desire to learn from all the children who have attended our camps. Last week was no different as we entertained around 30 children, who were willing to listen to our coaches and learn new skills during their day on our camps. Despite the horrid weather, our Athlete Development camp at Old Reigatians for Junior Boys & Girls was played out in fantastic spirit and the children resp..
