AYANA Resort Bali offers a unique experience for family travelers this summer. After success from last year’s launch of Southeast Asia’s first “destination camp” for kids within a resort, AYANA Bali announced its updated, nature-inspired children’s program. In order to create engaging and immersive programs, the resort has collaborated with two global leaders in holistic childhood education, Guidepost Montessori and Green Camp Bali.

Guidepost Montessori: Enabling Children to Flourish

With a mission to guide, empower and nurture curiosity, independence and academic excellence in children ages 2.5–6, Guidepost Montessori, a leading global network of schools, partnered with AYANA Bali for the world’s first destination school. The school offers a unique and immersive educational experience where children can explore and learn during a two- or four-day Guidepost at AYANA Adventure Camp.

 

Led by Monntessori professionals within a bilingual environment of English and Mandarin Chinese, the program encourages kids to dive into the island’s vibrant culture and complex ecosystem. At Kubu Beach, kids can investigate marine life, while SAKA Museum showcases traditional and contemporary Balinese arts. Meanwhile, AYANA Farm teaches kids about the growth cycle of local plants.

Green Camp: Nature-Based Learning

For children ages 7–12 who are eager for day-long adventures, AYANA Bali offers Green Camp AYANA. Offered Tuesday–Saturday throughout summer, Green Camp AYANA introduces kids to the world of wonder and wisdom that exists within them and the destination around them. Diverse activities include exploring the organic abundance of AYANA Farms to kayaking through mangrove forests. Activities were designed to strengthen life skills; boost sustainability awareness; and empower kids to engage more mindfully with themselves, others and the environment.
