4 Activities Children Will Love

With the summer holidays fast approaching, you’re bound to be wondering, “What now?” Armed with endlessly glittering sea views, dreamy villas, lush landscapes and a packed activity programme, Grecotel Hotels & Resorts have got you covered. Read on to discover some of the best activities on offer that will turn a “Mummy, I’m bored” into laughter and fun.

Dance on Pointe

Why not come shake a leg at Grecotel’s brand new dance classes? Classes are open for every skill level and gender, and you can pick from modern, jazz, barre a terre or latin! Grecotel’s experts are bound to transform even those with two left feet.

Courses are offered from beginner to advanced (for children aged 5+ and adults), making them great activities for the whole family to enjoy together. Kids are sure to release much of that boundless energy in these lively dance lessons and workshops whilst adults leave feeling energized, having worked out without even realising!

Dance lessons are available from mid-June to mid-September at Creta Palace in Crete and Riviera Olympia & Aqua Park in the Peloponnese.

Hit the Decks

Let your kids express their love for music and technology at Grecotel’s DJ Fun sessions. Kids are guaranteed to be captivated as they hit the decks in this fully interactive DJ lesson. It’s hot outside, but it’s cool to be at the Grecotel DJ Fun.

Teens can learn the ropes of DJing effectively with specialised technology and expert teachers. Young buddies (aged 13+) learn all the essential basics, from mixing to cueing up, from rhythm and beats structure to beat matching and blending techniques. Watch out as they take their DJ craft far beyond what they ever dreamed possible.

The programme is free of charge and available in July and August at Creta Palace located in Crete.

Whizz Through Adventure

Got constantly curious kids who are born explorers? Grecotel inline skating offers the perfect solution as kids whizz through beautiful terrain, exploring the best of Greece, at twice the speed for twice the adventure!

Inline skating lessons are available once every two weeks, starting from June until September. You can choose from private lessons or group lessons, ranging from 2-6 people. The programme is available for kids aged 5+ years at Creta Palace, Caramel, White Palace and Amirandes, all in Crete.

Bend It Like Beckham

Essential to all kids programmes is, of course, the world’s most beloved sport: football. Taking it back to the original soccer and having teamed up with one of the world’s biggest teams, Grecotel’s Valencia Soccer Schools does it best. Expert coaches from Valencia Football Club teach junior visitors (5-14 years) the sharpest techniques and skills whilst also teaching the important principles of fair play and teamwork.

Kids are taught in the dedicated mini 5x5 court of the resorts and are bound to come back home with some impressive skills. The programme is available in the Peloponnese at Riviera Olympia & Aqua Park, in Athens at Cape Sounio and in Crete at Amirandes, White Palace and Creta Palace.
