“From the time we arrived until the time we left, I noticed that this place has such great customer service, we were well taken care of and the staff was really friendly and helpful. Our accommodation was brilliant and it's been good from when we got here. We would recommend Sugar bay to every school because it really helped with the kids bonding and getting to know each other”. – Crawford College, Sandton
We have luxurious accommodation for both teachers and students. We can cater for up to 200 learners. Teachers stay in their own luxurious 3-star teacher lodge with a mini-bar, TV and pool. Teachers can chill out on their own private deck, take a stroll on the beach, cruise on the lagoon or join in on the fun camp activities while our staff takes care of everything. Students are treated not only to all the great activities we have to offer but to luxury en-suite stilted log cabins nestled in the treetops.
Our camp counselors are specifically trained and experienced in the growth and developmental needs of the different age groups, as well as Emergency First Aid & CPR. We also have our own qualified lifeguards who accompany the children to the beach, lagoon, and swimming pool. Their first priority is the care, supervision and happiness of every child; and they form an integral part of the Sugar Bay experience. They are also actively involved in teaching activities and ensuring that every child is helped and encouraged to reach their full potential, whatever their capability level. Our 1:5 staff to child ratio is the highest in the country, and 24-hour supervision ensures that the campers are kept extra safe while having the time of their lives.
Children are currently under huge physical, emotional, social and physiological stress. With isolation, overreliance on screens, lack of sports and play and prevailing fears, experts are reporting an increase in behavioural, academic and emotional problems including anxiety, low grades and depression. School tours are the ideal nurturing environment to help address these issues. Camp programs and activities are designed to support the emotional, physical and social development of children. Studies have found that a child’s psychological well-being and emotional balance will be greater after participation in a school tour. Many people rate school tours as being the highlight of their formative years. Education experts agree that school camps should be an integral part of every student’s learning experience.

“The American International School of Johannesburg has been bringing students to Sugar Bay Camp in Zinkwazi Beach, KZN for our annual Classroom Without Walls (CWW) week for over a dozen years. I have been the organiser on the school’s end for the past 8 years. From the start Sugar Bay has always been the highlight of the grade eights’ year. A greatly anticipated event that marks the closing of their final middle school year. In a phrase, Sugar Bay Camp is a fantastic educational opportunity that I would unconditionally recommend for kids of all ages”. - American International School Johannesburg
