The first art-immersive resort in the Maldives creates even more ways for family travelers to enjoy its amenities and the beauty of the region with the new 2023 Kids’ Summer Camp lineup. JOALI Maldives invites families to go on a journey exploring the environment, appreciating local culture and having fun in the water.
The property’s Muramas Kids Club gears up for summer with a summer camp itinerary filled with unparalleled kids programming. July 1–Aug. 31, each day of the program provides kids with new opportunities to experience the Maldives.
Kids can learn about Maldivian culture by creating the Maldivian flag and learning about what it represents. Other educational and enlightening experiences include Dhivehi language classes, cooking cultural dishes in the kitchen, local island tours to discover the distinct cultures of neighboring islands, and storytelling and traditional performances.
JOALI’s resident artists introduce kids to new art forms like ceramics, tie-dye, jewelry making and photography. Additionally, German artist Maja Rohwetter will virtually immerse young artists in a unique art experience through augmented reality.
Kids can experience Le Petit Chef, a fun-filled dining experience using cutting-edge, 3-D mapping technology. Kids can also take part in an array of cooking classes.
