The one thing your kids won't be at The Cloister is bored. With a seemingly endless list of activities, this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star resort provides plenty of entertainment for the youngsters. The little ones — between the ages of 3 and 8 — can march along with their peers at Camp Cloister, which is offered year round. Six days a week, your munchkin will indulge in the camp life with tie-dye, pool games, arts and crafts and bingo. You don't even have to worry about feeding them during camp hours — lunch is provided.
We all remember that once you hit a certain age, you don't want to hang out with younger kids, which is why there's also Camp Sea Island for kids ages 9 to12. Offered seasonally, Camp Sea Island concentrates on things that interest preteens, such as biking and scavenger hunts.
In addition to the day camps, kids can participate in individual activities such as horseback riding, tennis and sailing. There are lessons offered for each of these activities, where your little one can hone his or her skills during your stay. A variety of equestrian activities are also offered for those between the ages of 7 and 12, such as ring rides, private lessons, stable tours, trail rides and even a horsemanship clinic.
The Cloister Spa offers its own special program, KidSpa, which allows those ages 8 to 15 to take part in the relaxing spa experience. Kids can get a facial or a massage, perfect for the little spa-goer in your family.
Camp Cloister is offered daily for children ages 3-14, along with numerous programs in the afternoon and evening. Other programs include Cookie Cutters, Tie Dye, Movie Matinee, Air Rifle Bull’s Eye Hour, Archery, and Junior Golf and Tennis Clinics. In the evening, Kids’ Night Out, Survival Skills, and Bingo are popular for the kids.
