Beginning next month, Kapalua Resort on Maui will be offering free and discounted activities for families' summer fun.
From June 1 through Sept. 30, 2004, children 5 to 16 accompanied by a resort guest adult will be able to join in on Kapalua Keiki Club activities ranging from golf, tennis, and snorkeling, to arts and crafts.
For instance, children can take part in two complimentary golf clinics per week with Kapalua Golf Academy professionals. After practicing their full swing, keiki will be let loose on the Village Course. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., a maximum of two keiki can play free with a paying adult resort guest.
At the Art School of Kapalua, a complimentary ceramic session is offered to one keiki per paying adult. Classes run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and reservations are needed.
