Passover KID Zone

(for the most important people in the world)

Kids want to have a great time when they're on vacation, and as parents or grandparents, we all know that when our kids are happy, then we can relax and be happy too!

At Mendy Vim's Holidays, we set the bar in outstanding Passover Children's programs, with tons of activities for kids of all ages. The fun never stops from morning to night at our fabulous Day Camp, Teen Camp, game room, supervised play at the hotel's facilities, and terrific trips. Check out the action for kids of all ages: whether it's sports, extreme sports, games, a traveling petting zoo, daily on-site entertainment, crafts, exciting trips or more, our Passover KIDS Club has the most amazing activities on earth..

Who wouldn't be excited? With organized social events, puppet shows, laser tag, children's drama production, face painting, balloon twisting, magicians, carnival, hay rides, gametime, hunts, clowns and entertainers, and exciting trips, too... Get in on the excitement, our Day Camp runs on every Yom Tov day and every day of Chol Hamoed, with sensational programs specificaly geared to each age level.

Our Day Camp is superbly run (and abundantly staffed!) by licensed teachers and supervisors, who have been with us for a number of years. We offer Day Camp for children age 3-12, with a Kinder Care program for ages months-3, baby care, and babysitting.

Kid-Delicious food with a yummy children's menu


Kids don't always appreciate the duck a'la orange or rib steak on the bone that we adults do. So yes, we're kid friendly.

So yes, we're kid friendly. Our younger guests can take advantage of our Children's Dining Room, where we serve deliciously prepared children's meals and a kid yummy menu of all the things they like to eat: pizza, hot dogs, french fries, ice cream sundaes and the like, with staggered dining times from the adults. The food is so good here, we've even seen some adults 'being kids'.

It's your choice: separate dining in the Children's Dining Room (earlier dinner, for the kid that just can't wait ) or your children joining the rest of the family in our grand ballroom dining room. And on trip days, we offer savory boxed lunches your kids will love to munch.

Petting Zoo fun, right in our own backyard

Is your Mama a Llama?

Down on the farm: An amazing children's petting zoo visits us on Chol Hamoed, pulling up in a sparkling white 18 wheel tractor trailer, ingeniously designed with an entrance in the back and a walk through to the front. Our children (and their mothers, bubbies, and dads) walk straight through and pet and touch the animals in their stalls.

These have got to be the cleanest animals you ever have seen. When this reader asked the 'zoo keeper' how he did it, I was informed that all the animals had just had their daily bath, and the trailer itself gets hand waxed and shined regularly with airplane wax...

Seriously! But the children do have a great time, and some wholesome CLEAN fun.

Did you make that out of... duct tape?

Duct Tape Fun

Yes, you guessed, her outfit is made out of DUCT TAPE. For the last few years the 'duct tape lady' has been visiting us on Passover, with fun workshops on how to make anything and everything out of DUCT TAPE. (And you thought it was just for electrical work!)

Lots of fun at this exciting craft activity as girls, boys, and adults make wallets and hats, and explore their creativity with colorful rolls of duct tape.

all about horses: horseback riding and mucking out the stables, Vim's Passover Day Camp
Horseback riding and helping at the stables

Just Horsing Around

There's more to HORSES than just riding, you have to feed, groom and muck out its living spaces as well. Get your brushes out, make sure he is happy and healthy, horses require a lot of care and attention, and our kids certainly give them that!

Cleaning up after yourself is a chore. For a horse? It's a pleasure. From instruction and practice in pony care to horsback riding and hay rides, our kids have a great time at the nearby stables.
