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.

Brighton is the venue of choice for England this week as the squad have reported for a training camp to prepare for the upcoming international against Wales. GRTV caught up with Gloucester's Matt Kvesic after the first day's training.
Speaking to GRTV after the game, Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan reflected on the loss to Northampton Saints, and spoke about what he and the team need to do for the new season when the team return after the summer break.
In only his second Aviva Premiership outing, Lloyd Evans scored his first senior try for Gloucester against Northampton Saints on Saturday and told GRTV afterwards that he enjoyed the experience despite finishing on the losing side.
Gloucester will round off their Aviva Premiership campaign on Saturday with a tough finale against Northampton Saints. Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media this week that he's pleased with the team's attitude over the past two games and is looking for more of the same.
Speaking to GRTV after the 12-11 Aviva Premiership victory at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, Matt Kvesic described it as a real team effort with several players having to play out of position due to illness and injury in the ranks.
Despite he and a number of his team mates playing out of position, Greig Laidlaw's four penalties were enough to help Gloucester to a 12-11 Aviva Premiership win at Sale on Friday evening. The skipper told GRTV after the game that everyone had played their part, especially the younger players.
Wednesday saw Gloucester Rugby drawn with Stade Rochelais, Benetton Treviso and Aviron Bayonnais in Pool 1 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Director of Rugby David Humphreys responded positively to the news.
The draw for the 2016-17 European Rugby Challenge Cup has been made in Neuchatel, Switzerland this afternoon, and the Cherry and Whites have been drawn into Pool 1 alongside Top 14 duo La Rochelle and Aviron Bayonne and Pro 12 side Benetton Treviso.
