PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2013) - Beyond crafts and campfires, summer camp at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach combines the tradition and nostalgia of camp with the appeal and luxury of the oceanfront resort. Throughout June, July and August, "Camp Loggerhead" at the Palm Beach hotel brings families together for select, week long summer camp experiences. Long gone are teetering tents and cabin leaders in favor of Frette sheeted "bunks" and cabana cache. Mosquito memories burst to life with three-legged races, scavenger hunts, sing-alongs, pillow fights, S'Mores, Eau Spa "water sports," and marshmallows galore.

"Camp Loggerhead" (named after popular nesting turtles) overflows with hands-on family fun and goings-on throughout the Palm Beach oceanfront hotel. Families can enjoy bonfires and barbeques with hamburgers and hotdogs; participate in cooking classes with the Chef; make your own pizza night; plus games and popcorn filled movie nights in AquaNuts.

The Sunday arrival welcomes families with a late afternoon "Barefoot Mailman Walk" -- a historic re-enacted beach walk -- highlighting the local lore and history of Manalapan. The week continues with Eau Spa treatments, date night and wine tasting class for the parents. And for the younger hotel guests, scrapbooking, jewelry making and photography classes plus, family-friendly activities as turtle nest scouting, movies, archery, bee-keeping seminars, photography and pool/ beach games. The kids' scheduled events are from 9:00AM - 4:00PM daily and include lunch; no mosquitoes, homesickness or short-sheeted beds, just the perfect escape for summer days.

Weeklong stay includes luxurious hotel accommodations; all children's meals, and activities; adult Eau Spa treatments (one per adult); adult dinner for two and family dinner. Pricing for the six night camp is $5600 based on two adults and one child; price is $150 for additional children under 18 years. Dates for Camp Loggerhead are the weeks of June 23 - 29th, July 21 - 27th and August 18 - 24th.
