The Activities Department is open 7 days a week during this time with activities planned to start at 10:00am until 10:00pm on select days. Our activities team is fully staffed with trained professionals who will make sure your child has fun in a safe and secure atmosphere. Two of our most popular activities are Parent’s Time Out and Kid’s Night Out.
Some Time Just For You
Parent’s Time Out is four days a week during our summer season and is for ages 5-12. The duration of this activity is an hour and a half. Plenty of time for parents to soak up some sun! As we like to say, Kid’s send your parents to time out by the pool and come have some fun! The children will be able to enjoy making arts & crafts, playing games as a group, XBOX, and more! A snack is provided as well. There is a small fee associated with this activity.
A Party Just For The Little Ones!
Kid’s Night Out is four nights a week during our summer season and is also for ages 5-12. This activity is from 6:00pm until 10:00pm with a small fee per child.

Kids will be able to hang out with friends while parents can take a nice break themselves. Perfect time to enjoy the nightlife of the resort!
