World's Best Kids' Clubs
From a yacht in the Greek Islands to a DJ booth in the Maldives, you'll never hear "I'm bored" again when you book your tots into one of these.
FOR WATER BABES
Crossing The Sea, Greece
When is a yacht not a yacht? When it’s a floating kids club. The boat-ique Crossing The Sea flotilla, which journeys around the Greek islands comes with its own yacht for kids. At this mini mariners kids’ club, tots can learn how to read the wind, manoeuvre the rudder and tie knots, as the flotilla travels from Skiathos to Skopelos via Peristera. When they are not practising their sailing techniques, they can enjoy water sports with their friends or take part in treasure hunts when they go ashore. There is no fear of living off the ship’s biscuits as the kids will be treated to mini Mediterranean dishes prepared by the Kids’ Club crew.
It's also home to six sports academies, including one run by Juventus Football Club"
FOR ANIMAL LOVERS
Zarafa Camp, Botswana
Nature loving kids can become conservation warriors with The Great Plains Young Explorers Programme. Apart from joining the rangers on game drives, children aged eight to 15 will be able to learn bush tracking skills, survival techniques and how to cook in the great outdoors. The Zarafa Camp is set in the Selinda Reserve, which is home to leopards, lions, giraffes, elephants, buffalo and hippos, so there's a good chance they will spy an animal or two with their binoculars.
Soneva Fushi, Maldives
Warning! When your tots step inside the Den in the Maldives they will never want to leave. This innovative club is purpose-built for tiny adventurers. From the DJ booth and drum kit, to the ping pong hut and in-house cinema… this jungle gym-style club made from bamboo will provide non-stop entertainment. If they want to cool off after all that excitement, the Den also comes with its own waterslide and pool. It’s free for guests aged four and up.
FOR ADRENALIN ADDICTS
The Resort At Paws Up, USA
This luxury ranch in the wilderness of Montana is one huge playground. The original glamping site features two kids clubs – Little Discovers (age three to five) and Adventure Club (age six to 12). During the summer months they’ll enjoy go-kart races, zip-line rides and pony treks, and during winter they will play ice hockey and go luge-style sledding. You won't need to worry about them asking for extra data on this trip — they will be having too much fun outside. You can book the family into one of the lodges or complete the wild west adventure and reserve one of the luxury tents for your stay.
