Pioneers: 8 – 11 years

It is such an exciting age for our Pioneers and we have plenty in store to keep them entertained while allowing room for independence to let themselves grow trying new skills and activities – making likeminded friends along the way.


What to expect from Pioneers

Action-packed with sporting and creative pursuits making the most of the facilities these amazing resorts have to offer. We’ve created a strong ethos for our Pioneers to encourage independence, making likeminded friends and trying something new every day.

  • Fun, Fun, Fun - Customized activity plans to provide fun all the way, while building new skills and trying new sports, all while building confidence and independence. 
  • Happy tummies - We understand full tummies are important! We provide delicious healthy snacks throughout the day as well as a nutritious lunch prepared by the hotel chefs. Yum!
  • Communication is key - Parents will be kept informed, and children reassured if they are unsettled.
  • Little extras - Swimming Konfidence jackets provided if required.

Our Clubs

Where distant dreams become a reality…are you craving a game of tennis with your partner, an undisturbed snooze by the pool, a lazy brunch followed by a dip in the sea? We know that grown-ups may want some time just to themselves. All of this is possible with our Explorers Kids Clubs, located in the Med, Indian Ocean, UAE and the Alps.

At Daios Cove, Costa Navarino, Pine Cliffs and Courchevel, where our Explorers clubs are exclusive to Scott Dunn guests, our Globetrotters childcare for ages 4 months to 2 years is totally free of charge for vacations in 2024.
