THE stars of the European Cup final-bound Ulster squad will be returning to Barban Hill for the return of the Ulster Rugby Summer Camp.

The Ulster Rugby Summer Camps, sponsored by Centra and its independent retailers, are for boys and girls aged 6-12 years . The camp at Dromore Rugby Club will run from 13th-17th August while there are also camps in Lisburn and Lurgan.

Meanwhile the ever popular Senior Camp aimed at boys and girls (13-17 years old) with previous rugby experience and focusing on the technical, tactical, physical, mental and lifestyle aspects of Rugby Union will run out of the University of Ulster, Jordanstown in August.

Ulster Rugby’s Barry Willis, who heads up the organisation and delivery of the summer camps said: “It’s great to have Jared, Simon and Tim on board to help us launch our 2012 Summer Camp schedule. Our summer camps, run with support from Centra, are a fantastic way for both those who are new to the game and those with a little experience to develop their skills in a fun environment and meet new friends.

Jennifer Morton from Centra said;“Centra and its independent retail partners across Northern Ireland are proud to support the Ulster Rugby Summer Camps. Our community sponsorship programmes focus on the health and well-being of young people and as well as backing the Summer Camps Centra also supports Action Cancer’s Health Action project, which educates children in healthy lifestyles. We hope everyone enjoys their week at the camps!”

The Junior Camp cost has remained at £50 this year while places on the Senior Camps are £80.

There are discounts available for a second family member and the prices include a t-shirt, a boot bag, a rugby ball and a voucher to claim a free ticket to an Ulster game at Ravenhill.

Application forms are being distributed to schools and rugby clubs across Ulster and are also from local Centra stores.

Parents can book and pay for camps online. Full details of this year’s Centra Summer Camps and how to book can be found on www.ulsterrugby.com
