Luxury Jamaican resort Half Moon, in Montego Bay, has unveiled an exciting new programme of activities for its 2017 Camp Half Moon, the resort’s annual summer camp for children.
Running from July 10th through to August 18th, the programme is geared towards keeping younger guests mentally stimulated and physically energised with daily activities ranging from martial arts to yoga, horse riding and cooking lessons.
Split into two age groups, Camp Half Moon will cater to children aged between four and six and seven to 12.
Throughout the week, kids will be encouraged to unplug from modern technology and throw themselves into learning a new skill with the guidance of certified instructors.
Martial arts is one of the key components of the programme, with the younger children learning Karate while the older group will be taught the art of Taekwondo by the internationally recognised martial arts expert and president of the Jamaica Taekwondo Association, Arthur Barrowes.
Children are also taught basic yoga techniques including meditation and stretching, both of which are proven to enhance their physical flexibility and develop focus and concentration.
Aspiring golfers have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game on the resort’s award-winning golf course, while others can join the reef fishing expedition, allowing participants to release their inner hunter-gatherer.
Water-babies will no doubt be delighted with the wealth of water-sports on offer, including paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and snorkelling by the reef.
With the children fully entertained, parents will be able to kick back and relax, taking full advantage of Half Moon’s facilities, from the Fern Tree Spa, to the two miles of private beach and five on site restaurants.
