AFYA is delighted to announce a partnership with the experienced youth travel provider Xplore.
Together we have created a series of summer rugby camps and multi-sports activity camps for children which will take place at the prestigious Pangbourne College in Berkshire and Worksop College in Nottinghamshire. The camps are both residential and non-residential.
The multi-sports camps (24 July – 18 August Pangbourne College and 24 July – 25 August Worksop College) are open to all and are non-residential.
Both summer rugby camps (23-26 July Pangbourne College and 26-29 July Worksop College) will be led by rugby legend Charlie Hodgson, who has been described as ‘a divine playmaker’ who also happens to hold a point-scoring record that is unlikely ever to be broken.
He has 38 England caps, went on the British & Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand in 2005 and won the Premiership once with Sale Sharks, twice with Saracens and won one European cup with Saracens in 2016. An exciting and enthusiastic coach, Charlie will be helping players to improve their kicking and passing techniques over our exclusive four day course.
Charlie will be joined with a number of our other top coaches including:
