October camp: How we tackled our rugby fever

This week the campers were welcomed to England for the 2015 rugby world cup. What better way to show support for the Springboks than a week that consisted entirely of Rugby madness.


Campers enjoyed an extraordinary day of activities at the beach that included surfing and kayaking while bonding with their peers and counselors. Monday evening had the junior campers learn some rugby skills from their counselors while the seniors got to test their rugby knowledge at quiz night.

With another beautiful day awaiting our rugby fanatics, campers were spoiled for choice with land and beach activities. That evening our campers were invited to the palace for Casino night. 

On Wednesday our campers were treated to an excursion for a viewing of the rugby match and later they enjoyed a lovely dinner at MacDonald’s.

Campers who stayed at camp didn't miss out on the rugby experience either. After their afternoon boat cruise, they watched the live rugby match at the AC lodge. The evening was topped with some delicious pizza and milkshakes.


It was another fun and exciting day for our rugby enthusiasts, with activities such as BMXing, paintball and dance, campers were guaranteed an eventful and busy day. Later that evening our campers got to show off their talents in front of the judges at Sugar Bay's Got Talent.

 Friday night was party night and these campers proved to us that their skills stretched further than the rugby field when they hit the dance floor. It was an evening of dance, fun and laughter with our peers, which was topped with a fire show by some of our campers and counselors.


Saturday started off with awesome activities including an experience on our bungee trampoline, Space Jump, where we saw some out of this world moves. Saturday was also Match Day and after the intense week of practice and preparation, we found out which cabin took their training seriously in a touch rugby match. The match carried on throughout the afternoon and Clown Fish who were representing Scotland were crowed the Sugar Bay Touch rugby champions for 2015.

 If you couldn't join us for this camp, you can still  book your spot for our December camps. Check out our rates & dates here.
