This is an annual rugby experience that takes young athletes out of their local settings and introduces them to a different style of rugby in a very different environment. During this learning experience, we point the athletes in a direction, which aligns with their natural propensity to excel. Other benefits that come from this type of participation are friendship, character building, leadership activation, knowledge enhancement and personal growth such us the development of Creativity, Awareness, Resilience, Decision making and Self-organization.
In exchange for all this above we ask parents/guardian to sponsor and support financially their sons during this campaign. We ask a contribution towards the covering of the expenses as follows: flights, transfers, local transport and entrance fees to local attractions, accommodations and food and all the extras.
