crafting community at the ace hotel

This October 4-6, Crafting Community will return to the iconic Ace Hotel in Palm Springs for its fourth, exciting year. This innovative family retreat is designed to create a window in time that cultivates creativity, fitness and imagination, offering a rare opportunity to decompress from the chaos of city life. Free from devices and trends, Crafting Community encourages a connected experience between children, parents and families as they spend quality time together, make unique things, and simply enjoy each other’s company.

A DAY IN THE LIFEmore_info_bar

You’ve packed up the kids and hit the road in search of a break from the grind and a dose of much-needed relaxation. Arriving at the fabulous Ace on your first night of Crafting Community, a family-friendly welcome party and dinner broke the ice and got you into the swing of this no-stress paradise. But that was last night and this is a new morning. Your first Crafting Community day beckons. What can you expect?

Early risers salute the sun and embrace the day with sunrise yoga on the lawn. A continental breakfast awaits both yogis and those who chose to indulge in a little extra shut-eye. Structured leisure is the name of the game, and the morning brings a diverse menu of opportunities to get bodies moving and creative juices flowing, as you make new friends and relax with your family. While adults enjoy their cappuccinos, kids get moving with age-targeted fitness classes. Morning craft workshops begin at 10:00. A great way to spend focused fun-time together, workshops are led by renowned creative types with special talents and ideas to share through artistic activities appropriate for all ages. After a buffet lunch and free-time break, round two of workshops start at 1:00 with even more new experiences in art and fun. The afternoon brings a few surprises and a chance to rest and freshen up for the evening, which promises stories, s’mores and dancing under the stars. Your first day at Crafting Community is almost over, you look at the happy kids running on the lawn and feel a little sad it’s all gone by so fast. But then you remember, you get to do it all again tomorrow.
