Welcome to the Easts Juniors Rugby Club home page!
All Easts Parents - Wondering what to do with your Beast during the school holidays? How to keep them entertained when the break from rugby leaves them full of beans?
Easts Juniors Rugby + program is running a special family weekend program from 13-16 July.
Rugby+ is an Easts Juniors program that uses the language of sport and the special relationships between coaches and players to develop positive skills and attitudes within our children. It aims to more fully prepare our children for happy and successful lives wherever they end up - as future rugby stars, workmates, family and friends.
The 5 core themes of our Rugby+ Values model (Respect, Resilience, Commitment, Collaboration and Leadership) provide the foundation for all activities at Easts. Dedicated Rugby+ activities are often themed against one of these values to explore beyond the concept and genuinely unpack the science and skills in an age appropriate way.
Brought to you by Easts Juniors Rugby Club and the organisers of the event with the most sought-after invitation in Canberra – “Dadstock”, Can-Do Camping will take place on private bushland on the banks of the Clyde River in Nelligen, NSW.
Can-Do Camping will focus on the Rugby + value of resilience, with a couple of hours of activities each day designed to teach the kids (and adults!) life skills such as changing a flat tire on a car and bike, starting a fire, cooking a meal, using power tools and so forth. Along with these structured activities there will be plenty of time for play, with a river full of fish to catch, a mountain bike track to ride on, bush to explore, or just a quiet catch-up with a newspaper by the river.
It’s not just for your Beast – its for their parents, brothers, sisters and friends as well. Rugby + is all about becoming a better person, so by bringing other kids who aren’t part of the Easts fold (yet!) as well, we all benefit.
Will it be cold? Yes it will be a little chilly in the mornings, but it will be way colder in Canberra, and you will stay warm while toasting marshmallows on a roaring campfire, drinking campfire coffee to wash down BBQ breakfasts and climbing into snuggly sleeping bags.
You will need to bring your own tent and bedding.
Further details will be shortly be published on our website, and tickets can be purchased at this link: Click to book!
Ticket prices include: All food and drinks (non-alcoholic) for the entire weekend, site amenities including gas for the BBQs, all activities and fund raising for Easts Juniors Rugby Club.
So block out the weekend, round up your Beast and campmates, grab your tickets and start getting excited about a screen-free weekend of fun!
When? PM Friday 13 July to AM Monday 16 July 2018. Early arrival and late departure is welcomed.
