Need a vacation for you…. but you still really want to take the kids? Then an easy vacation choice is Dreams Resorts & Spas or Now Resorts & Spas. Why? Explorer’s Club! I LOVE taking my son away on vacation with me and having some great family time, but some fun time for me is also VERY nice. This is where the Explorer’s Club comes in. We experienced it before at Dreams, and this week at NOW. The Explorer’s Club is for children 3–12 years old. It’s not babysitting, they are actual experiences for kids.
A few days of our vacation we were able to take our son to the Explorer’s Club to meet new friends from around the world, and even one from right up the road from where we live. I honestly can’t say enough good things about the staff at the Explorer‘s Club. They are wonderful. They were genuinely friendly and enjoyed the time with my son as much as he did with them. They are uniformed professionals, but at the same time within seconds he loved them and wanted to keep going back.
The first night he went they had a beach party. The kids all roasted marshmallows and had dinner on the beach followed by a movie on the beach! They watched the movie from beach chairs and used beach towels as blankets.
One night I dropped off Tucker and picked up “Spiderman.” The next night I dropped of Tucker and picked up “Tuckito,” his new Spanish name (they had Spanish lessons that night at the camp).
A schedule is posted each day of the Explorer’s club activities so he could pick what he wanted to participate in. It included a variety of activities from pool games, board games, (kids) Bungy, Sandcastle competitions, Piñata fun, cooking lessons, Spanish lessons, kids lunches, kids dinners, movie time and more!
I knew my son was always safe. I had a beeper where they could reach me and he was always in a secure environment. Every time I picked him up he was happy and smiling; and when I thanked the staff each night I always heard the same thing “No, it was our pleasure”.
One of the most memorable things he did on his last night, was he left a hand print on the floor with his name and date so when we go back he can see it again. Thank you Explorer’s Club for giving mommy a vacation too! Now… if only there was an Explorer’s Club near home.
