A while back, we were tickled pink to run a Staff Spotlight highlighting various members of our award-winning INSPIRED For You program. Joshua, Jeremiah, Tyler—Jonas and Casey—it was fun to learn more about these high energy people with a passion for helping guests create memorable experiences at our resorts.
Now, for those of you who don’t know, INSPIRED For You is an ARDA-winning series of ever-changing, always engaging activities at each of our six resorts. Each activity is led by one of our talented fun officers, outgoing and caring people with honorary degrees in stimulating the senses and creating unforgettable experiences. For a taste of what the INSPIRED For You team does, we’d like to showcase some of the top activities at each of our resorts—activities that always leave guests saying, Wow.
INSPIRED Studios — San Diego, California
Talk about cutting edge! INSPIRED Studios is a virtual reality studio and green room where our guests can push the limits of high-tech creativity. Experience virtual reality first-hand, learn to use a 3D printer, or take to the skies in drone flight school. We even offer a super top-secret spy camp, iMovie production for the Spielbergs out there, and photography classes. INSPIRED Studios is always stepping up its game, which is why it remains a guest favorite at Welk Resorts San Diego.
Taneycomo Kayak Adventure — Branson, Missouri
Experience the beautiful Lake Taneycomo waterways winding through the breathtaking Ozark Mountains. The Taneycomo Kayak Adventure is one part of our INSPIRED Adventure series, a collection of outdoor activities that gets guests out and in touch with their surroundings. Smell the fresh air as your very own Welk INSPIRED guide takes you on a dazzling kayak tour of these famous Branson waterways. You’ll get the blood flowing, and if you’re lucky enough, encounter herons, various fish species and maybe even a bald eagle or two. It’s a truly wonderful way to spend your time while staying at The Lodges at Timber Ridge By Welk Resorts.
Prohibition Speakeasy & Escape Room — Palm Springs, California
We. Love. Escape rooms. They’re so much fun!

Need we say more?
