OMNI INTERLOCKEN RESORT CATERS TO WHOLE FAMILY
BROOMFIELD, CO (April 2008) – With 27 holes of golf, two outdoor pools, a Jacuzzi, hiking trails, bicycles, a full service spa, and unique, hands-on activities for kids, Omni Interlocken Resort & Spa offers the perfect summer vacation. This summer playground offers just as much for the youngest family members as for the adults longing to enjoy their own recreational pursuits.
Pow Wow in a Tipi with Native American Storyteller
Again this summer, out on the open prairie at Omni Interlocken Resort, kids will sit cross-legged inside the authentic, 22-foot ceremonial tipi as Native American storyteller, Bailey Phelps tells tales of the old West and plays his Native American flute.
A tribal member of the Cherokee Nation, Bailey Phelps spreads the traditional tales of Native Americans. He has published four books, including They Loved the Land and With Our Own Eyes. Wearing a traditional ribbon shirt, he includes an Apache pin, Navajo belt, and Ute-made porcupine feather to honor the indigenous tribes who occupied the Colorado territory.
The tipi was designed by Normadics Tipi Makers who have created tipis for 35 years using the authentic Sioux design. They bring a living artifact to the 21st century making it possible for children to experience a nomadic culture from hundreds of years ago.
Up Close and Personal with Bugs and Creepy Crawlers
Kids go eye-to-eye with insects from the nearby Butterfly Pavilion each Saturday morning during the summer at the Omni Interlocken. To the delight of the pint-sized guests, trained volunteers from the Butterfly Pavilion, a conservatory featuring butterflies and other invertebrates, bring the bugs and butterflies, including Rosie, the Tarantula.
Weekly Dive-In Movies Keep Families Cool in the Summer
With a setting as spectacular as the nearby Flatirons, visitors to the Omni Interlocken Resort can indulge all of their senses with the weekly dive-in movie shown at the outdoor swimming pools. Families are encouraged to lounge poolside – or even inside the pool – and enjoy complimentary popcorn while they watch a movie on the specially constructed big screen.
These Omni Interlocken Resort summer activities get into full swing beginning May 30, 2008 and run through August 30, 2008. Storytelling, bug presentation, and Dive-In Movies are complimentary with an overnight stay at the Resort.
Named one of the top 10 best hotels for families by Child magazine, the Omni Interlocken Resort offers special children’s menus, kids bags upon check-in, milk and cookies each night and a rolling backpack suitcase available for check-out at the front desk. The suitcase includes books and board games for added entertainment during the stay.
