World Cup winning England Women's captain Katy Daley-Mclean is hoping to inspire more female players to take up the game through the recruitment drive which is already in its third year.
England Rugby's Inner Warrior Camps have already attracted 10,500 women, 2,500 above the target, in their first two years.
The drive which is an initiative of Rugby Football Union is seeking to add to the 3,500 women and girls who have picked up a rugby ball for the first time which has contributed to 41 new female clubs being established.
"The World Cup was another amazing spectacle for our game," she said.
"We got to the final and it wasn't the result we wanted, but in terms of growing the game and creating a legacy, giving young girls the opportunity to play, the game is in a really good place.
"Ultimately what you want is more players. That's going to mean there's going to be more for the England coaches to pick from as well."
Katy graduated from the University of Sunderland with a BSc Sports Studies in 2007 and works professionally as a schoolteacher. She went on to win MBE in the 2014 New Year Honours and was part of the 2017 Women's World Cup squad.
"I've been very privileged to play a game that I love and I've been privileged to do that as my job," she added.
"If we can give back and inspire a new generation, hopefully if a bunch of girls in Newcastle can be inspired, that would be amazing."
The 2018 camps run from January 12 to 28.
