Among Ubud's finest ac­com­mo­da­tions, Man­dapa, a Ritz-carl­ton Re­serve, is step­ping up the game a big notch with the kid-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties it is of­fer­ing. De­signed to pique the in­ter­est and cu­rios­ity of the ju­niors, the re­sort's kids' club is called Man­dapa Camp. In­spired by wan­ti­lan – a Ba­li­nese tra­di­tional meet­ing pavil­ion – the fa­cade of Ba­li­nese huts looks in­trigu­ing amidst Ubud's lush green­ery. The camp comes with an or­ganic gar­den, an in­spir­ing

Kid's Hut and an ed­u­ca­tional farm – yes, with the re­sort's cows, chick­ens, ducks, rab­bits and more. The Man­dapa Camp team has de­signed an elab­o­rate pro­gramme fit for the lit­tle ones and also for the en­tire fam­ily, aptly named Mini Ex­plor­ers. De­signed to en­rich the hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence for your kids, the Mini Ex­plor­ers pro­gramme comes in full-day or half-day op­tions.

A Taste of Heal­ing Tra­di­tions is a half­day jour­ney that fo­cuses more on Ubud's pre­cious tra­di­tions. The half-day fun starts with yoga and mak­ing your own break­fast ses­sions, be­fore con­tin­u­ing with the or­ganic gar­den ex­cur­sion. Here the chil­dren will learn to for­age, taste and cook dif­fer­ent kinds of veg­eta­bles and herbs. As a nice wrap-up, the lit­tle par­tic­i­pants will get a work­shop on nat­u­ral plant dyes, and also learn to cre­ate jamu, Ba­li­nese-style herbal drinks. The full-day jour­ney goes by the name of A Day of Eco-dis­cov­ery and Cul­ture. This one in­cludes work­shops to learn pen­jor (Ba­li­nese bam­boo tower) mak­ing, canang (Ba­li­nese of­fer­ing) mak­ing, and vis­it­ing the lo­cal tem­ple and tra­di­tional sa­cred tree. The kids also get to learn about subak farm­ing and rice plant­ing in the re­sort's field, mak­ing their own daluman (Ba­li­nese jelly drink) and then en­joy a pic­nic lunch at Lum­bung – a tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese hut, among other ac­tiv­i­ties.
