Cassius Camps was born after founder Philip Ercolano brought 4 young, unknown footballers to the Lake District, to take part in an experimental training and development camp. They were all viewed as prospects at their respective clubs, and each set what appeared to be an ambitious goal for the forthcoming season: to make one first team appearance.

Drawing on a lifetime of experience working with high performing teams, and recognising the connection between mentality and performance, Philip and his team designed a programme to drive success. Using specific outdoor challenging activities, instant review sessions and life skills workshops, they created a programme to accelerate the mindset needed to perform at the highest level.

Fast-forward twelve months; collectively with over 70 first team games under their belts, picking up numerous national awards along the way, their combined value at the end of that first season was over £20m.

What We Deliver

We accelerate the development and performance of professional sports teams and individuals through adventurous and challenging 1-7 day training camps.

We take people out of their comfort zones. Through skilful review and reflection, people are able to turn the outcomes from the challenges and workshops into knowledge they can apply in their chosen sport.

Through replicating a sports competitive environment in the outdoors, our programmes deliver life- changing experiences. We focus on 12 improvement pillars, which in turn creates the Cassius ‘Pushing The Limits’ Mindset.
