Ritz Kids

As Jean-Michel Cousteau says, “All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’” Our resort’s experiences tap into that innate curiosity by introducing our youngest guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of our family resort’s barrier island location. Immersive and adventurous, the experiences provide your child with enthralling activities during your family vacation. 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 sand dunes and ancient forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food. Ritz Kids introduces our young guests to the natural wonders of the island through a variety of hands-on adventures. Designed for children ages 4 through 12, the supervised program entertain kids with educational games and activities featuring different themes throughout the week.
