Schools love Sugar Bay

You never know what you’re going to get when it comes to a camp.

There are some people who absolutely love them and some who just want it to be over with, but not with Sugar Bay Holiday Camp on the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. When our five days of fun were up – and time really does fly when you’re having fun – everyone was sad to leave.

Starting from the beginning, when we first arrived, we could feel the excitement fizzling in the humid air as we walked into our temporary homes. We were greeted with friendly smiles and high-fives from the camp counsellors. They had very interesting names, like Snape, Charms and Techno, and while they seemed a bit odd at first, it didn’t take long for us to get used to them.

So much to do at Sugar Bay!

There were limitless activities, high ropes and climbing walls for the adrenaline junkies, and friendship bracelets and chilling by the pool for the people who just wanted to relax. There was such a variety of things to try out, such as trampolines, surfing, beach swims, slides, dancing and more. Each day the activities changed, and they each brought a unique experience with them. You could choose to do whatever you wanted, and with whoever you wanted.

Then a different theme awaited us each night. There was a Casino night, a Fear Factor night, a Party night and even a Whose line is it anyway? night. It was shocking watching people battle through the Fear Factor challenges and fun trying to win the most money in the casino. Everyone enjoyed themselves and got involved.

It really was an incredible experience, and it was a great time for our whole grade to bond as a family. People tried many new things, including hanging out with people who weren’t in their friendship group. There was plenty of free time to sit with your friends and talk, or maybe just play a game of basketball against some of the camp counsellors. And the food was delicious. Three meals a day with food of that quality made us feel like royalty.

We say thank you to the school for this unforgettable trip and to all the teachers who came with us. It really was one of the best camps I’ve ever been on, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I wish I could travel back in time and do it all over again.
