EAU Palm Beach Offers Kids Spring Break Staycation While Mom and Dad are at Work


For parents looking to make spring break memorable for their kids, but unable to get away for a family vacation at this time of year, Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa offers day camp options that will have local kids talking about their “best Spring Break ever,” without even leaving South Florida. Open to the general public, the newly branded boutique resort features an “Eau-so-cool” kids program like no other. Tucked away at the end of the Ocean Avenue bridge in Manalapan is the Eau Palm Beach Aquanuts — a magical, underwater world where kids can spend action-packed days under the supervision of the fully-trained and kid-friendly Eau Palm Beach team. Geared to kids ages 5 to 12, Aquanuts camps feature themed days behind the wheel of a pirate ship, videoing with GoPros, dressing up in the modeling and photography studio, indulging in spa treatments, making tie-dyed shirts, scaling a climbing wall, mastering water sports, performing on a stage, learning on Apple computer systems and more! “The Aquanuts program is so popular with our visiting kids that we wanted to open it to a local audience,” said Carolina Griffith, Aquanuts and COAST Manager. “Every day our Aquanuts set off on a new imaginary adventure, brought to life through a mixture of creative, artistic, social and sporting activities. The Aquanuts Clubhouse has all sorts of fun and creative experiences to keep children happily and safely engaged. It’s the perfect answer to school holidays when mom and dad are working or have other plans.” Parents may drop their children off as early as 7:30 AM and pick them up as late as 6:30 PM on all school holidays for a “locals only” day-long fee of only $65. The fee does not include lunch and snacks, so parents are encouraged to please pack a cold lunch, water and two snacks for their children, or order from the Eau menus. Camper space is limited and must be reserved a day in advance. During the week of March 17-21, local kids also have an exciting opportunity to add tennis instruction to their Aquanuts camp day. Led by Palm Beach’s most respected and friendly tennis director, Karen Rembert, Eau Palm Beach Tennis Camps guarantee young players will advance their tennis game, get fit, make new friends and have tons of fun. “Whether your child is brand new to tennis or a professional hopeful, our P1 Certified USPTA Professional and USTA High Performance Coaches will teach your child a sport that will serve them for a lifetime,” said Catherine Warren, Leisure Director. For tennis camp only, fees are $300 per child per week, and camp runs from 9 a.m. to noon. To add tennis to the full day of Aquanuts programming, fees are $350 per child per week, which includes the AquaSport charge. Catering to visitors and locals alike, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is situated on a private beach on seven acres of oceanfront and lush tropical gardens, welcoming guests with breathtaking ocean views immediately upon arrival. Spacious guest rooms offer private balconies with ocean, pool and garden views. Extensive recreational opportunities include the luxurious 42,000 square foot Eau Spa, three Har-tru tennis courts and an expansive fitness center with daily group fitness programs. With over 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa accommodates groups from 10 to 1,000 people and offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor venues for private events. Eau Palm Beach is a 2013 recipient of the AAA Five-Diamond rating and the Forbes Five-Star Rating.
