What do you do with the keikis (kids) when mom wants a massage while dad wants to golf? Let the kids spend a day in a fun and educational kids program. Many Hawaii resorts have kids clubs that are available for their guests. These programs are set up for kids generally aged five to 12 years old. Most programs include lunches.
Here are some examples of kids programs that you can find across Hawaii:
Waikiki’s Aston KeikiQuest Kids Club – This program is open only during summer months and is very well priced at $50 for a full day of activities including museum and aquarium visits, fun cultural programs, catamaran sailings and more. This kids’ program is open for ResortQuest guests at any of the eight ResortQuest Waikiki hotels and condominium resorts.
Waikiki’s Hilton Hawaiian Village Children’s Program – Since this resort was recently named a top family beach resort by Parents Magazine, they’re bound to have a good kids club. Kids enjoy either full or half-day programs including activities like fish feeding, supervised swimming and visits to the zoo, aquarium, and museums and more. Price start at $60 per child and vary based on full or half-days and excursions.
Hilton Waikoloa Village Kids’ Camps – This resort offers day and night camps for kids. So, if mom and dad want a to have a romantic dinner on Friday and Saturday, the night camp that runs from 5:30pm to 9:30pm would work out perfectly. The charge for day camp starts at $60 per child and the night camp starts at $60. When there’s availability, they open these camps for families staying outside the resort, though a higher fee applies.
Westin Kids Club is open to the public, though guests of the Kaanapali Westin and Sheraton get a price break. They also have an evening program operated every night from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Prices start at $45 for a half day.
Kalapaki Beach Club at the Kauai Marriott is open to both guests of the Kauai Marriott as well as those staying outside the resort. They offer very flexible child care programs including an option for hourly care. They offer half-day, full-day, and evening options starting at $35.
This list is by no means an exhaustive list of all the kids programs in Hawaii. This list is meant to give you a sampling of what’s available and how much to expect to pay. Have you used any of the Hawaii kids clubs? If so, please share how you and your kids like it in the comments.
