Bowl with the family

The Junior Club inspires connection and cooperation among seven to 11-year-olds with programs like Masterchef at Sea, Dorebro sports competitions and the live Fire & Ice video game. With the Young Club, kids from 12 to 14 years can dive into a world of discovery with a dedicated program of sports tournaments, high-tech games and other fun activities like singing and dancing on the set of the Kelly & Kloe On Board Green Screen Experience.
