Gloucester's international rugby stars will be joining more than two hundred young players next week when the Kingsholm club kicks off its half-term rugby camps (14-18 February).
England internationals Henry Paul and James Simpson-Daniel and Samoa's Terry Fanolua, as well as a host of other Gloucester favourites will be at the half term rugby camps sponsored by Green Lane Land Rover.
The camps take place at Oxstalls School, Gloucester (14-15 February), Cheltenham Rugby Club (16 February) and Cirencester Rugby Club (17-18 February). The camps have proved very popular this season and offer youngsters the chance to work on their rugby skills and meet the Club's star players.
Paul, Simpson-Daniel and Fanolua will be joined by the likes of Alex Brown, Nathan Mauger, Jake Boer, Adam Eustace and Alex Page over the course of the week.
All camps are aimed at boys and girls aged 7-14, of all abilities, and spaces are still available on all three camps. Walk-ups will be welcomed on the day but on a first come, first served basis so participants are advised to book early.
The daily sessions will run from 10am-3pm with qualified coaches covering a host of rugby skills.
The price of each two-day camp is £33 with the one day at Cheltenham priced at £17. There are discounts available for members of the Junior Gloucester Crew and junior members of Cheltenham and Cirencester rugby clubs.

Speaking to the local media on Thursday, Matt Kvesic was looking forward to the trip to Newcastle Falcons, and the captain is looking to lead from the front with plenty for the Cherry and Whites to work on.
Gloucester saw a 12-0 lead overturned by Harlequins on Friday night as the visitors ran out 22-15 winners. After the game, Director of Rugby David Humphreys spoke about missed opportunities on the night.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, James Hudson explained his excitement for tonight's game with Harlequins and that he is backing the Cherry and White squad to impress during the next set of Aviva Premiership games.
Despite a dream start at Kingston Park, scoring a try after just 26 seconds, Gloucester couldn't capitalise against a dogged Newcastle Falcons side. Too many penalties were conceded and too many errors made as the Falcons prevailed 20-10.
There are three changes to Gloucester Rugby's starting line-up for Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Newcastle Falcons. Steve McColl will make his first Premiership start for the club.
