As Jean-Michel Cousteau says, “All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’” Ritz Kids resort experiences tap into that innate curiosity by introducing our youngest guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of our resort locations. Immersive and adventurous, the resort experiences provide your child with enthralling activities to reward their interest in the beauty and workings of the world we live in. With a diverse collection of activities based on the four pillars of the program – water, land, environmental responsibility and culture – kids are swept away by everything from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food.
Our Ritz Kids program offers a variety of supervised physical and creative activities designed especially for children aged 5-12. Offering full or half-day options, seven days a week, Ritz Kids has something for every child.
Ritz Kids Camp at The Lodge
Whether going on a nature hike or scavenger hunt, hooking a fish or making a pine cone bird feeder, your children will be treated to a day of adventure they’ll not soon forget. Ritz Kids Camp is offered 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, $85 per child with lunch included. Half-day programs from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and 1 to 4 p.m. are also available, $65 per child per session. Reservations are requested 24 hours in advance.
Kids Night Out at The Lodge
Available Friday and Saturday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m., children can get away for a night of fun and excitement just for them. The supervised evening includes games, arts and crafts and loads of fun all centered on a special theme for the night! $75 includes dinner and refreshments. Advance reservations are required by 2 p.m. the day prior. Cancellation fees will apply for reservations cancelled within 24-hours of the program.
