The Furman Rugby Camp was established in 2009 to foster youth rugby development, good sportsmanship and camaraderie. Entering our seventh year, we are the oldest rugby summer camp in the Southeast. The camp is held annually at Furman University in Greenville, SC, and hosts both residential and day campers ages 14-19. This year's camp will be held July 6-10, 2016.
Furman offers substantial rugby scholarships to rugby athletes. If you would like to be considered for these generous grants, make an investment in attending the camp. While there you will have an opportunity to get to know Coach Roberts and can also meet with Furman admission counselors and receive a campus tour.
The registration fee is $550 for residential camp. The fee for day campers is $275. If you would like a group rate, contact Furman Coach John Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org or 864.294.2187. Drop for the camp and camp orientation will be 3 p.m. July 6 at South Housing quad, which is directly across the street from the soccer stadium, near 106 on this campus map. The team will be lodging in Blackwell Hall.

What to Bring
The Furman camp is more than a rugby clinic. It is a campus experience. While learning from some of the top coaches, participants get a small sampling of college life. They will enjoy living in the dorms (if they are residential campers) and experience one of most beautiful college campuses in the nation.
They will train in our Physical Activity Center, swim in our Olympic-sized pool, dine in the Daniel Dining Hall and reside in South Housing. Check out photos from the 2010 camp and see photos from last year's camp on the Furman Rugby Camp Facebook page.
