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.
Welcome to Ritz Kids, a one-of-a-kind program specially created to provide your child an engaging, educational experience to make this trip one they will remember for a lifetime.
Working with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, we’ve created a fun, immersive program that rewards children’s innate curiosity and invites them to explore four areas of our world: water, land, culture and environmental responsibility. The supervised children’s program is designed specifically for our younger guests, ages 5-12 to allow parents to relax while children play with counselors.
Our program philosophy is “All Kids Start out as Scientists” and Ritz Kids encourages your child to ask questions about the world around them.
How does it work? Why does it do that? What happens when…?
As Jean-Michel Cousteau says, “All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’” Ritz Kids is designed upon four key pillars:
- Water: Emphasizes the importance of sea life and health.
- Land: Encourages exploration and discovery.
- Environmental Responsibility: Promotes our role in the health of our planet for the future.
- Culture: Exposes young minds to a variety of art forms, including music, local customs and history, as well as cuisine.
Based upon these pillars we will tap into the innate curiosity of our youngest ladies and gentleman by incorporating the aspects of different cultures from around the world, allowing these experiences to stay with them for life.
Through this exploration, we will inspire kids to learn more about the world we share and leave them with extraordinary and unforgettable memories of their stay at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach.
