Join us at 7 PM for a complimentary game of family wiffle ball at Canopy Park or take part in our Junior Adventures Party in the Gamers Lounge. Then, on Friday, kick off the weekend right with a variety of family activities going on throughout the resort. Try your hand at Adventure Golf or the all new Archery Challenge, play a game of teen spikeball at the beach, get creative with glitter body art on the pool deck, bust a move at our Tanner Dance Party, and join us for a complimentary ice cream social. Then on Friday evening from 5-9PM we’ll be hosting our weekly Boardwalk Bash at Marché Burette where you can enjoy our low country boil, live music, drink specials, family activities, a bounce house and more.

Remember to lace up those running shoes, because on Saturday, April 19 at 8AM we’ll be hosting our annual Bunny Hop 5K down at Racquet Park followed by a Kid’s Fun Run at 9AM. Proceeds from the event will benefit the local organization, Barnabas. Stick around after the race to help us celebrate our annual Easter Parade. We’ll be decking out bikes and island hoppers with decorations, so visit Amelia’s Wheels, rent your own and join the parade, which kicks off at 10AM and travels throughout the property. The Parade ends at Canopy Park at 11AM, but the fun doesn’t stop there! Take your picture with Tanner the Turtle and enjoy a variety of games, a bounce house, crafts, adventure golf and animal encounters – just a few of the activities we’ll be offering at our Easter Carnival.

In addition to the Bunny Hop 5k, Easter parade and carnival, we’ll be offering an egg relay race, a build-your-own boat competition on the pool deck, beach fires, magic shows, and more!

Meet us at Marché Burette from 5-9PM for our Saturday Steak Out, which includes live music, family games, drink specials, and choice cuts of grilled beef. Then surprise your little ones with an Easter Bunny tuck-in at bedtime.

Then on Easter Day, wake up and enjoy a non-denominational Easter sunrise service at 7AM on our pool deck, followed by an Easter egg hunt at the shops from 8-9AM and photos with the Easter Bunny from 11AM-1PM in the Sunrise Lobby.  And don’t forget about our delectable Easter brunch in the Chef’s Kitchen from 10AM-3PM.
