Explorers Kids Clubs give everyone me-time on a luxury holiday
Every parent feels a little guilty about wanting time to themselves, especially on holiday. But what if your children were having the time of their lives and not missing you for a second?
That’s what Scott Dunn Explorers Kids Clubs are all about: giving parents guilt-free time off parenting duty and making sure kids are busy having fun. It’s a win-win situation and only possible because of the thought and experience that’s gone into creating clubs where children are safe and happy. They’re learning new skills and building confidence, making friends and fantastic holiday memories.
If you want to put this to the test, Scott Dunn now has seven Explorers Kids Clubs. You’ll find them in the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean and the French Alps. And, although each club is unique, incredible comes as standard, along with quite a few other comforting factors:
- Explorers Kids Clubs are designed for children from four months to 11-plus.
- Each club is divided into age groups so kids are never left out of the fun.
