Survival of the fittest at Sugar Bay's Capitol

Image
The survival skills definitely continued well into the second week of holiday camp as campers arrived at the Capitol eager for an adventure filled week. Below are the highlights of the fun we had on our shores during the Hunger Games  week.

Monday


Campers kicked off the week with a trip down to the beach where an adventure awaited, graced with sunny skies, kayaking, surfing and beach art just to name a few. Later that evening after receiving a map and clues, our juniors headed off to District 1 to find some precious gems which they presented to the bidding war (aka our counselors). Intermediates headed to District 9 where they enjoyed an educational evening learning and having fun with grain. Our seniors strut their stuff in an amazing fashion show, let's just say all fashion skills were sharpened to impress the judges.

Tuesday


The fun continued as campers enjoyed a beautiful day of land and beach activities. Campers got to climb walls, zip line and showed off some dance moves in the …

Bungee Experience Launches Camp To New Heights

Image
Bounce, Jump, Flip and Flip again! I'm pretty sure you're wondering what I'm talking about right? Well, get ready to say hello to SPACE JUMP; the latest addition to our family of super cool activities.

Birthday week is coming up and what's a celebration without the ultimate birthday gift? After 14 years of existence we thought we should take to new heights and spoil ourselves and campers with a massive bungee trampoline. Over and above the zillion free-choice activities, we have added a little something extra. So while you contemplate on the king swing, high ropes or rock climbing; we thought we should give you a push in the right direction when it comes to choosing the bungee trampoline.

What is Space Jump?
Bungee trampolines are attached on several ropes, hooked on bungee cords and poles which enable the jumper to put pressure on these cords so they can easily jump up and down. Space Jump helps you defy gravity by enabling you to jump as high as 8m into the air, and th…

Roaring Moments on Sugar Bay's Jurassic Jungle

Image
What would you do if you, an awesome group of friends and counselors were to get lost in a real Jurassic jungle exploring the lives of massive dinosaurs and possibly being the ones to save the earth again by finding the most dangerous Tyrannosaurus Rex? This week's campers were prepared to make finding this massive carnivore a rooooaaaaring experience! These are just a few highlights of our lives in Jurassic World...


Monday

Nothing like a full day on the beach to bond with your mates and prepare for a hectic week of adventurous fun. Our day on the beach and lovely picnic definitely had us amped for the week ahead, preparing us for a fun search. We took part in cool beach activities and a bit of yoga to keep us calm and collected after a crazy dinosaur building moment. Our fantastic day was rounded off with exciting games with our awesome counselors.

After a long day of climbing walls, zip-lining through the jungle, facing our fear of heights in high ropes, almost touching the…

Hot Holiday Highlights

Image
The only thing cold about these past winter holidays was the ice-cream, but even the ice-cream was served with warm waffles. July camps saw some hot beats, warm waffles and some fiery french flavors.

Pitch Perfect Beats
Camp kicked off on a high note as we had our very own rendition of the famous musical movie, Pitch Perfect. With a variety of activities; we ensured that there was something for everyone. For the young chef, there was the cooking club; for the rhythmic and upbeat soul we had camp DJs; the surf pros and beach bums could join the life guard/beach club; and finally we had our very own Barden Bellas and Treble Makers bringing acapella life to camp. 

The excursion to the Barn Yard Theatre was definitely a camp highlight, where campers enjoyed the 100 Hits musical sensation. Another highlight was the "Riff Off", where seniors were split in groups of four and had the chance to share their favorite block busting musical tracks with other groups. It was wonderful …
