The early bird offer for this year's Munster Rugby Summer Camps ends at midnight tonight.

The special promotion rate is just €75 per child for the camps which will be held at 22 different venues throughout the whole province.

Camp places are available for boys and girls from six years old to 12 years old. Each camp takes place over one week (Monday through to Friday inclusive) between 9.30am and 1.30pm.

After tonight, the cost is €85 per child. Additional children from the same family can attend for the discounted rate of €75 per child.

Please note there is an online booking facility on the Munster Rugby website where you can also download the Summer Camp Application form.

Each participant will receive an Official Summer Camp Pack comprising an Adidas Summer Camp T-Shirt, Adidas Shorts, Adidas Socks, Draw-String Bag, Mouth Guard and one Junior ticket to a Munster pre-season match.

Children who participate in the camps will get the chance to make new friends, learn more about rugby values such as teamwork, respect and integrity, and also become more aware of the importance of physical fitness. All this while learning to develop the basic rugby skills of passing, tackling (in a controlled environment), evasion and kicking. Most of all we guarantee lots of fun!

To facilitate the appropriate attention, participants will be divided by their age into groups. Central to the Munster Rugby Summer Camps' philosophy is ensuring the introduction to the game of rugby in a safe and controlled manner.

The camps will be managed and run by fully accredited IRFU Mini Rugby coaches. All Summer Camp staff have undertaken the National Garda Vetting process required to comply with the IRFU policy regarding recruitment and vetting to work in age grade rugby.
