School + Resort = Ideal Workcation
Who says learning can't be fun? In this era of e-learning and remote schoolwork, French Lick Resort is just as illuminating as it is relaxing. Add some French Lick flavor to the curriculum with downloadable resources and activities for kids to keep their creative motors running all throughout their work-cation at the resort.
From the science behind the limestone in the famous French Lick Springs Hotel tunnel to the architecture of the famed West Baden Springs Hotel dome, there’s educational opportunities at every turn. See below for our archived "Teaching Tuesdays" segments with videos and accompanying worksheets about the unique history of our resort and community.
Our Steve Rondinaro has been busy creating video lessons for our Teaching Tuesdays. Well, everyone needs a break now and then, so he’s also created "Story Time with Mr. R" for our young friends. We have a series of four stories he wrote, inspired by his lively dog Rex. Enjoy the adventures of Rex the Wonder Dog when you need a storytime break.
Our activity book filled with more than 20 pages of word searches, crossword puzzles, mazes, coloring pages and more. A fun outlet with a little taste of history, perfect for elementary-aged kids. Pick up one at any hotel front desk, or download and print one before your visit.
Think you know our history? Get ready to find it at French Lick Resort. Play #FindItAtFLR to find sites with historical significance throughout the resort and take a selfie at each spot. Download or grab a clue sheet at the front desk, ace the test, post your favorite photo to social media, and earn a prize to take home. It’s both family-friendly and a perfect way to social distance while brushing up on 175 years of resort history.

“Dream Vacation” contest

Take a Brain Break
With plenty of on-site activities, recess has a prominent place in the curriculum here.
Head to the pool for a dip. Sneak away for a quick hike, bike ride, or even work in a game of bowling. Get outdoors for some cornhole, badminton or croquet on the front lawn. Go for a horseback ride or a game of FootGolf. There’s plenty to look forward to when it’s time for a study break, or when schoolwork is done for the day.
Plenty of Spots for Getting Work Done
When it’s time to go online to learn or get some reading done, the desks (and even the cozy king-size beds) in your guestroom are just the start. Needing a larger workspace for the kids when they’re working in pods? Stop by the concierge desk for suggested locations that might be available for working or studying.
Our 3,000+ acres have plenty more study-friendly locations, indoors and out. From the peaceful mezzanines and verandas at the hotels to out-of-the-way hideouts in the gardens, the kids can spread out and work in peace and quiet.
