Kid’s Crew Activities at Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center.

An awesome adventure awaits you and your child when participating in Kids Crew. Moody Gardens Hotel offers all guests complimentary access to Kids Crew Activities, allowing children and parents to engage in exciting activities. Kids Crew is a seasonal program designed to excite children with multiple supervised activities such as arts and crafts, scavenger hunts around the park, pool coin dives, bounce houses, kite flying, face painting, karaoke, video games, movie nights, s’mores and much more.

Pick the time that works best for you and join the fun!

Kids Crew is complimentary to all hotel guests. Parents must be present throughout the duration of their child’s involvement of the program. Children with special needs are welcome to participate in the Kids Crew program. Let our counselors know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate their needs.

During the holiday season, Kids Crew transforms into Santa's Workshop!
