When you’re travelling with children, the main thing you need to know is what’s on offer to keep them entertained while you’re away. And, I know how important it is for everyone to have fun, no matter how old you are (big kids included). If you’re looking to travel on a last-minute holiday, a winter adventure or a summer getaway, then we’ll make sure that the whole family can get involved, especially your older ones.
There’s so much for children of all ages to get stuck into, whether this is running around playing sports, getting creative with arts and crafts or taking part in games. Just think of all the brilliant things you can do in a Thomas Cook Kids’ Club. Plus, I’m going to share a little secret with you; this isn’t only enjoyable for them, but it’s good for you too, as it’ll give you the chance to relax and have that break you’ve been waiting for.
The need to know:
Before you camp out by the pool with a fantastic book and have a moment to yourself, there’s some information that you need to know about our Thomas Cook Kid’s Clubs. There’s the Lollo & Bernie Kids’ Club for 3 to 7-year-olds, the Junior Club for 8 to 11-year-olds and the Teen Club for 12 to 15-year-olds. We also offer a similar activity program at Sunwing Family Resorts and SunConnect Resorts.
No matter the age of your little one, making new friends will be super exciting for them. It’s worth knowing that spaces run out fast, and come on a first come, first served basis. Along with places being limited, the Teen Club only opens in July and August. If your teenagers want to get involved in the action outside of these dates, there’ll be some sessions for children of all ages. For some kids’ clubs sessions, it’s required that a parent or guardian attends at all times and may have an additional charge.
Our Lollo & Bernie Kids’ Clubs and Junior Clubs are open six days a week, and with so many adventures to be had here, there’ll be lots of stories to share over dinner. You should also know that some of these fun-filled activities cost extra, so make sure that when you’re on holiday, you speak to your rep to find out more information.
Lollo & Bernie Kid’s Club:
Singing, playing and dancing are some of the best things you can do at a Thomas Cook Kid’s Clubs. Arrange for your kids to meet Lollo the giraffe and Bernie the bear at any of our branded hotels that feature the Lollo & Bernie Kids’ Club. Besides seeing our lovable mascots, you can arrange for a surprise private visit for your little ones, a meet and greet while you’re having breakfast as well as moving on the dance floor at the Lollo & Bernie themed party.
If your getaway wasn’t already entertaining enough, your kids could become real explorers with activities such as mini scavenger hunts, where they can help us find hidden treasure. You might have also seen Lollo & Bernie in action, as we recently partnered with Channel 4 on their award-winning show, The Secret Life of 5 year Olds, for the second time. In case you missed this, you’ll be able to watch the full episode and mini-series online here. Watch familiar faces travel to our fantastic Sunwing Family Resort in Turkey.
The Junior Club’s perfect for an adventure, with lots to keep the youngsters entertained from the moment you arrive on holiday. If your girls and boys love to play in the sun, then they’ll be able to cool off with our water games. Warning; they’ll be in for a splashing time! The excitement doesn’t stop there, as there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in some fantastic sports and creative fun. Let them show off their design skills when decorating a t-shirt or creating a comic strip, which will make excellent gifts to take home for a loved one.
Having them joining in with our kid’s clubs isn’t just about activities like the traditional face painting; it’s an opportunity to come together and make some great new friends. So, not only will they love getting in on the action, but it’s also the chance to have fun with other children their age.
Like the Junior Club, it’s essential your teens make lots of friends and have the best time on their holiday. They’ll probably be missing their mates back home, and what better way to distract them than by meeting some new people. Plus, it’s crucial that they get a slice of the action as they don’t want to watch their younger siblings having all the fun!
Our Teen Club is a safe space to hang out and gives your older ones an opportunity to be themselves. And, there’s so much for them to get involved, including sports games like volleyball, or they can choose to chill out while watching a movie.
