The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is now featuring two new experiences for its younger guests. Both of these unique experiences are inspired by the resort’s spirit of adventure.
First, guests can “rough it” with the new In-Room Camping option for children visiting with their friends and families. The new children’s amenity will replace the traditional rollaway bed with an in-room tent large enough to be a home-away-from-home for the kids. The option includes tent delivery, tent set-up, a s’mores kid, a book about Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, and a keepsake desert tortoise stuffed animal. The In-Room Camping offers a fun and imaginative way for young guests to enjoy their stay and feel at home.
The Junior Rangers program is also being introduced to compliment the existing Dove Mountain Rangers program for five-to-12 year-old children. The Dove Mountain Rangers program allows children to experience adventure, desert fun, games, and hands-on, educational sessions about the history, animals, and plant life surrounding the resort. Once the Dove Mountain Rangers program is finished, participants are “graduated” and rewarded with a stamped activity passport and personalized ID card.
Now, graduates of the Dove Mountain Rangers program can earn promotion to Junior Ranger for their next stay. Junior Rangers will enjoy privileges not accessible to other guests and will “shadow” the Dove Mountain Rangers in their daily tasks. They will also be allowed to care for the flora and fauna around the resort and for the resort’s desert tortoises. Junior Rangers, or “adventure interns,” can keep their title for multiple stays until age 12.
Parents are urged to call and reserve a Dove Mountain Rangers or Junior Rangers adventure, or to arrange In-Room Camping for their family’s stay.
