ACTIVITIES

SWAPAPALOOZA!

Pony (Ryan Stasik) is hosting the most outrageous activity of the year that we are putting a community outreach twist on, giddy up! We all have those piles of clothes we want to donate to the Salvation Army, right? Well, here’s your chance to wear them once more and then donate to a local Jamaican charity. Don't miss this on Saturday night in the Disco.

Here are the rules of Swapapolooza 09’
1.  Grab your “give-away” outfits and pack them in your bag. On Saturday night late night, put them on and head to the Disco.
2.  Every 30 minutes, a siren or a horn will go off signaling a “swapping session.” Each person swaps an article of clothing with the person (he or she) next to them.
3.  THIS REPEATS UNTIL THE PARTY ENDS AND YOU ARE WEARING A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT OUTFIT!
4.  The next day, we will provide bins at the Cloud 9 Customer Service desks at each resorts. Donate these and any other clothes and we will deliver to a local charity for those in need.


Caribbean Holidaze Chanukah Celebration

Start Chanukah in style with the entire Caribbean Holidaze J-Team Family as we gather on the beach to light the Chanukah Menorah for the first night of Chanukah, listen to Chanukah music (Adam Sandler's Chanukah Song, Klezmer Music, etc...) over the main stage PA, eat Chanukah Latkah's made from Aaron Magner's Bubbi's receipe, and play a dreidel game like never seen before ($10 buy in, winner takes all). As we all know Chanukah gifts can be anything from socks to a Wii, so we encourge eveyone to bring a wrapped Chanukah gift with them for the gift exchange!!! You never know what you'll walk away with.

Jamaica Heritage Day
Oh to feel the Jamaican sand under our toes once more! Jamaica is truly a place of happiness and togetherness and this year we will bring back the ever-popular Jamaican Heritage theme night . Last year’s Heritage night included a tremendous Jamaican Steel Drum performance with live Jamaican break dancers that kicked up the heat at set break. When the performance closed in a draw-dropping crescendo, not a word was uttered (a hard feet with this crowd!) and, after a few seconds, every person simultaneously rose and cheered in awe. This year is sure to equal the performance, as we revel in Jamaican jerk chicken, Rastafarian tricolored headbands, and, yes, more surprises!
