After dinner the campers started to make their way to the university of Chichester's SU for the end of camp disco.  Not only did the players get to have a chance to have some more fun and relax after a long week of hard work, but the disco was a great opportunity for our champions to receive their winning medals. Coaches also gave out awards to one hard working player in each of their teams presenting them with their very own Eurocamp t-shirt.
