ost parents would define a perfect vacation as one that meets or exceeds the whole family’s expectations. At Camp Pelican,™ the kid-centric oasis hidden inside The Resort at Pelican Hill,® six team members make it their business to ensure that the littlest guests end up having all the fun they can handle.
“The kids’ pool and secluded indoor-outdoor setting inspire children to play, learn and make ‘best-vacation-ever’ memories,” says Robin Dunivin, spa director at the Resort, a role that includes oversight of Camp Pelican. “Year-round, our staff focuses on nurturing young minds and spirits with engaging activities and unforgettable experiences.”
Walk through the doors and discover a pint-size world of magic, imagination and possibility. Camp counselors, many of them pursuing degrees in education, psychology, nursing or childhood development, play the part of tour guides on imaginary safaris. With a strong belief in the power of creative play, they challenge campers to explore and pretend.
“When children take a break from technology, there’s no limit to where their minds can go,” says Georgina Flores, activities specialist supervisor at Camp Pelican. “We head outside. We stage talent shows. We play “hot potato” and charades. We give the children a break from their screens and encourage them to interact with the world and each other.”
