Family Fun at the Resort

Children’s Programs

Our complimentary Children’s Day program is a fun way for the kids to start the day. With a full morning of programming, from adventures to the beach and The Farm Institute to activities and games with Counselors, our Children’s program is a great way for them to make friends and memories while giving you the morning off being a parent!

 

Our Children’s Program counselors strive to keep your children active, safe, and happy! Counselors are CPR and First Aid certified.
