Ritz-Carlton In Puerto Rico Launches One-On-One Summer Camp For Kids
Summer routines have been hugely disrupted this year due to the coronavirus, leaving many families at a loss for ways to keep their kids busy during this downtime. If you are desperate for options, travel agency Embark Beyond has partnered with Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico to create the ultimate quarantine summer camp solution.
“This exclusive opportunity has been designed to offer comfortable settings allowing for social distancing, through private accommodations, private meals, private activities, and a dedicated private counselor. Kids will be entertained with full days with their personal counselor, while parents can relax with peace of mind or work remotely if necessary,” says the Embark Beyond website.
Guests will be able to explore the resort’s stunning 1,400-acre campus that includes pools, snorkeling, beach access, golf, and more. The four-day to four-week program includes a full itinerary with individually-curated activities, ranging in cost from $1,500 to $2,000 per week. The program is available for families who are staying in one of the hotel’s residences, which come complete with a full kitchen, beach access, and in many cases, a private plunge pool.
“While kids enjoy an itinerary filled with daytime fun, parents can enjoy relaxing days at the pool before ending the night with their children for a special evening activity,” the resort’s General Manager, George M. Sotelo, told Travel + Leisure.
The summer camp program provides an ideal option for families looking for summer activities and who are also itching for a getaway after months stuck in quarantine or under social distancing restrictions.
According to Johns Hopkins University, Puerto Rico has more than 10,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and visitors to the island will be required to show a negative COVID-19 test from 72 hours prior to arrival to avoid having to quarantine.
