Ritz-Carlton Beaver Creek Kids Activities

Every day of the week brings a new adventure in Ritz Kids! Our schedule of Rocky Mountain themed activities, games, adventures and crafts will keep kids busy having fun while they learn about this remarkable state. Kids should plan to bring their winter gear as we will plan to get some fresh air playing outside during each morning and afternoon session. Listed below is the children activities schedule and times. 

Sunday: Winter Sports and Games Day

Morning: Warm up your throwing arm for a fun and super silly snowball contest. Then, get toasty with some cocoa before making your own Colorado flag souvenir.

Afternoon: Try out a new sport as we explore around the hotel on snowshoes! After the hike, refuel by preparing your own healthy and delicious snack back at the clubhouse.

Kids Night Out: Kick off this exciting evening by creating a custom decorated t-shirt. Then, let the games begin as you compete in team challenges to see who will win gold in the Ritz Kids Olympics.


Monday: Wild West Day

Morning: First, dress the part by decorating a one of a kind western bandana. Then, venture outside like a homesteader and build yourself a snow fort to sip hot cocoa in!
