While parents enjoy the sun and the sea relaxing in our lido, babies can play animation and recreation activities within our Mini Club, cared by animators and educators.
Activities are different according to children age: a baby group for 3 to 5 year-old babies, two different groups (boys and girls) for 6 to 8 year-old children, boys and girls groups for 9 to12 year-old participants.
There are swimming and snorkelling courses, baby diving and also advanced apnoea courses, activities into the swimming pool and into the sea, football school, mini beach tennis and mini beach volley, as well as sports tournaments. For girls and women we arrange aqua-gym, rhythmic gymnastics and Caribbean dance lessons. In addition to sport-related experiences, we organize practical workshops about creative recycling in order to make children understanding not only the importance of a correct “separate collection”, but also the importance of “home re-using” and “waste-production decrease”. Other thematic workshops are about sea biology and botany as well as decoration and hand working.
For the youngest participants in effect, besides playing into the water and in groups, we also arrange manual workshops: little creations made with salt dough, painting, origami, creation and painting on stones and shells, together with tales reading workshops.
In order to diversify the Mini Club activities, this year we organize educational visits in order to make our children aware of the surrounding landscape: we organize visits at “Macchia degli esperti” in Molfetta for horse-rising experiences with the “Saddle Christening”, or driven excursion to Scoparella wood within the Alta Murgia National Park, with a Bio Pic-Nic;
also we arrange driven excursions at the Pulo di Molfetta; or visits to the Sea and Archeological Museums in Bisceglie; also we organize a backward trip for closely observing the pre-historical “giants” (“Attrazione Dinosauri” Miragica in Molfetta) and last but not least, the long-awaited meeting at Centro Divertimenti Miragica to spend a funny day.
Educational Vegetable Garden
The great new of this year is the realization of a didactic vegetable garden within our Mini Club. In line with the philosophy of “Buen Vivir”, our Pizzeria on the sea, we set up a vegetable and aromatic herb garden. Once harvested, they will be used by the Pizzeria for a km 0 kitchen, in the truest sense of the word.
After the soil preparation, all children participating to the Mini Club activities, co-operate for planting young plants, taking care daily of them, during the morning watering-meeting, by realizing identification plates with the name of every plant into the garden, and by harvesting our products always accompanied by experts.
Now we can only say… come and try us!
