Ritz Kids®

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.

The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas offers junior guests a variety of special services and amenities, including:

  • Snorkel and scuba programs (Children ages five and older are welcome on our snorkeling outings and ages eight and older on our scuba tours)
    Introduce your child to sailing with Island Time Watersports' Youth Sailing Program! US Sailing Certified Instructors work with students age 8-12 on the fundamentals of sailing, with both half and full day options.

    Our half day camp runs from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with class sizes limited to three students per instructor. We start the morning with a chalk-talk, highlighting our goals for the day before getting hands-on experience aboard Hobie Waves.

    When the morning ends, sailors participating in the full-day camp have lunch with their instructors at Sails from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.

    The sailors spend their afternoon back in Great Bay, applying the fundamentals learned earlier to sailing Aqua Finns and Optimists, while instructors run exercises from motorized inflatable chase-boats.

    Offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

    Half-day (9 a.m. - 12 p.m) $175
    Full-day (9 a.m. - 4 p.m.) $225
