Kids’ Club at Mohonk Mountain House

Our Kids’ Club program is complimentary for our overnight guests. Based on a philosophy that “lets kids be kids,” the program is designed to include plenty of playtime while exploring the natural wonders and beauty of Mohonk. Our Tykes’ and Children’s staff are certified in a minimum of Basic First Aid and CPR.

Our goal is to provide an attractive, safe, and enjoyable environment that offers a positive and memorable experience for children and enables parents to relax during their visit.

If you have any ideas, questions, or concerns, please call the Children’s Supervisor at (845) 256-2170. We value your input!

Structure of the Program

The Mohonk Kids’ Club is tailored to meet the special interests and needs of our young guests. For the summer, this program is divided into three age groups: Tykes (ages 2 – 3), Explorers (ages 4 – 6), and Adventurers (ages 7 – 12). Our program also offers a choice of morning and afternoon sessions for all ages, and evening sessions for ages 4 – 12, so that parents and children may be flexible in planning their day.

During the spring, fall, and winter, children are put into two groups to start: ages 2 – 3 and ages 4 – 12, and then grouped according to their interests and abilities.

More Details

The Mohonk Kids’ Club is available every day from mid-June until Labor Day. A modified Tykes’ and Children’s Program is available most weekends and holidays year-round. Family activities are planned for Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. For your information, a daily Mohonk Kids’ Club activities schedule is posted on the Main Bulletin Board located near the Central Stairs.

A daily choice of sessions and activities is offered. For example, depending on ability, older children may choose to participate in rock scrambling and arts and crafts in the morning session, then spend the afternoon boating with their families. Similarly, if your young child is accustomed to napping in the afternoon, he or she can join the Tykes’ program in the morning for activities such as picnic playin’, finger painting, or visiting the playground, and nap in your room later in the day.

Children will be grouped according to their interests and abilities. A more active child may choose hiking or a frog hunt in the morning, while another child may pick arts and crafts. Kids can enjoy lots of seasonal activities, including boat rides and nature explorations in the spring, and hay rides and pumpkin painting in the fall. In the winter months, weather permitting, we offer snow tubing, snow painting, hiking, and ice skating at our Pavilion.

Can I Participate With My Child?

Each morning and afternoon session begins with a half-hour “get-acquainted period.” This is a time for parents, nannies, baby-sitters, and children to become familiar with the Mohonk Kids’ Club environment. It is also a time for our staff to get to know your child and for parents to get to know the staff who will be leading their children throughout the session. Parents are welcome to stay for the first half-hour of each morning and afternoon session.

However, at the end of each get-acquainted period, we ask that parents leave their child with our capable staff, allowing new friendships to be made as children gain a sense of independence.

Activities made available to the Adventurers may include rock scrambling, clay beads, fossil hunts, tennis clinics, kite and paper-making, and sports tournaments.

Adventurers are also welcome to join in the Explorers afternoon session. In addition, on a daily basis, the Adventurers’ own suggestions will be incorporated into the schedule in response to their varied interests.

Evening Program: Ages 4 – 12

7pm – 8:30pm

Every night mid-June through Labor Day and many weekends and holidays throughout the year, we provide a complimentary evening activity for our overnight guests ages 4 – 12. Participants in our evening program meet in the Council House, and most events are programmed for the group.

Evening activities may include Ice Cream Sundae Socials, twilight hikes, theme dance parties, movie night, or special entertainment such as storytellers, music, and animal and insect programs.

When available, the Children’s Buffet and the Dinner Buffet are ideal allowing parents to feed their children dinner before dropping them off for the Evening Program, allowing parents to enjoy a relaxed three-course dinner on their own or indulge in a spa treatment.
