This summer, family travel at The Peninsula receives an upgrade with the debut of Camp Peninsula, a children’s experience that recreates the spirit of camping right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The journey begins with a special welcome from Peter Bear, the hotel’s lovable mascot, at check-in. After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages. Whether it’s a luxe staycation or an extended holiday, Camp Peninsula is an ideal way to ensure the little ones are happy campers.
Camp Peninsula can be added to room reservations for $495 per stay, in addition to the nightly room rate, and includes:
- Peter Bear welcome and keepsake photo
- Camp Peninsula teepee set up
- Flameless s’mores set up
- Four-hour sitting service featuring camp-themed games and a guided scavenger hunt, available once per stay
- Use of a luxury BMW to explore Los Angeles as a family
- Bookings require 48-hour notice and are subject to availability
