Divi Resorts is expanding its children’s activities at six of its Caribbean resorts starting July 22nd. The weekly schedule of free family events, called Treasures of the Caribbean, includes a treasure hunt, sandcastle building and movie night.
Every Monday morning starting July 22nd, children and their parents will follow clues (and the resort’s activities staff) around the Divi Resort property to amass a stash of keepsakes. The real treasure at the end is a T-shirt, one that does special things: It turns every kid into a member of Divi’s Pirate Crew. And those crewmembers enjoy free refreshments – beverages and ice cream – throughout their stay at Divi. It also earns them a salute from Divi staff each and every time they wear the shirt.
On Wednesdays, the big event is sandcastle building; souvenir bucket, shovel and great sand and ocean are supplied.
To kick-off the new Treasures of the Caribbean program Divi is hosting a contest to decide who can build the best sandcastle this summer at a Divi resort. Pictures of the sandcastles will be showcased on Divi’s Facebook page (Divi does the posting and all the picture taking) and Divi will invite its Facebook followers to decide the best one. The winning family gets another vacation, but this time it’s a FREE one. (The contest gives new meaning to the term “vacation home,” wouldn’t you say?) The winner can select any of the participating resorts for their free stay.
So let the fun begin! Join Divi’s Pirate Crew. Hunt for treasure. Build a castle. Enjoy a movie on Friday night.
