INTRODUCTION Resort management is the combination of three elements: * Recreational attractions that draws guests to the facility * Housing and food and beverage services that cater to the people away from home * Activities to occupy guests during their stay
A resort is a place for relaxation or recreation, attracting visitors for vacations and/or tourism.
Resorts are places, towns or sometimes commercial establishment operated by a single company.
Towns which are resorts — or where tourism or vacationing is a major part of the local activity — are sometimes called resort towns. If the resorts are situated near the sea, then they are called seaside resorts. Inland resorts include ski resorts, mountain resorts and spa towns. Towns such as Sochi in Russia, Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt, Barizo in Spain, Cortina d'Ampezzo in Italy, Druskininkai in Lithuania, Cancun in Mexico, Newport, Rhode Island, in the USA, Ischgl in Austria, St. Moritz in Switzerland, Blackpool in England and Malam Jabba in Pakistan are well-known resorts.
In North American English, the term "resort" is now also used for a self-contained commercial establishment which attempts to provide for most of a vacationer's wants while remaining on the premises, such as food, drink, lodging, sports, entertainment, and shopping. The term may be used to identify a hotel property that provides an array of amenities and typically includes entertainment and recreational activities. A hotel is frequently a central feature of a resort, such as the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island, Michigan. A resort is not always a commercial establishment operated by…...

Computers and Recreation Management

...With all the technology we have today computers are vastly changing the way we do things and how jobs are run. Computers up grade things that at times make things more efficiently ran, and at times cut down on the time it takes to do a project. It changes the way we do things and makes things easier to understand with some work fields that people are in today. With some fields of work computers would not really help out that much but in my field it helps out a lot. Just from the tools that we use it is mostly a computer base thing.

So from the classes I have this year I am learning that computers are vastly becoming a part of my major. We use things like Geo II Explorer, and the Garmin E-Trex.

The Geo II Explorer with creates maps and plots the points of where you have been and how to get to one point to another.

Qualitative Study of Reasons for Women (Non) Participating in Physical Recreation

...1002HSL – Introduction to Research 12 Qualitative Report Qualitative Study of Reasons for Women (Non) Participating in Physical Recreation Nick Moore Nick Moore S2865504 Dr Daniel Lock Natasha Cox Introduction Qualitative Research is the study of different phenomena’s in their natural settings, attempting to make sense of or to interpret the phenomena in terms of the meanings people bring to them. It involves an interpretive, naturalistic approach to its subject matter and gives the priority to what the data contribute to important research questions and previously existing information (Denzin, 1994). This report will examine the reasons for why women may or may not participate in leisure activities. Through examining results from the study that was undertaken, we will be able to determine whether being married women has a positive or negative effect on physical activity compared to that of a single women. Those who participate in sport, recreation and physical activity are generally healthier, more confident and feel better than those who don’t (DSR, 2006). However, data from the Australian Longitudinal Study or Women’s Health indicate that younger women (aged 18-22) with children are far more unlikely to participate in physical activity compared to middle aged women (30-34) (Brown, 2002). With constant advertisements, government campaigns and gym’s urging citizens to do more physical activity, it is difficult to determine why these single or married women......

Pilot Episode of Parks and Recreation

...he episode opens with Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), the deputy director of the Department of Parks and Recreation with six years of experience in the town of Pawnee, Indiana, discussing with a documentary crew her strong belief in the power of government to help other people. Later, Leslie hosts a community outreach public forum at an elementary school along with her jaded colleague Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari). Leslie is enthusiastic despite the low turnout and angry complaints, which she describes as "people caring loudly at me". Local nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) complains about a giant pit near her house, which was dug out by a condominium developer that went bankrupt in the middle of the construction project. Ann says that her boyfriend Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) broke both his legs after falling into the pit, and she demands something be done about it. Leslie is inspired by the challenge and makes a "pinky promise" that she will fill in the pit and build a park on the land.[1][2] Leslie seeks advice from city planner Mark Brendanawicz (Paul Schneider), who feels the project would prove practically impossible due to the logistics and bureaucratic red tape, but Leslie is undeterred.[3][4] Leslie later fondly tells the documentary crew that she and Mark made love five years ago, but Mark only vaguely recalls the encounter.[5][6] Leslie, Tom and uninterested intern April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) visit Ann and meet Andy, a lazy and demanding musician whom she is forced to......

Recreation in Elders

...Throughout the years researchers have been studying ways to help the elder community, by developing programs to benefit the older generation in health related issues. The programs are forms of inclusive and therapeutic recreation. Therapeutic recreation (Bullock, Marhon and Selz, 1997) is defined as; “a purposeful intervention directed at the individual and his environment that aims to enhance health and impact functioning in many critical life domains.” Meaning that when looking at therapeutic recreation within the senior citizens is purposeful due to the change in body functioning. Programs can be developed to help the elderly stay active; some programs may be simply eating healthier foods or more advanced programs such as aerobic classes. The main ideas of these classes are to introduce programs that might expand their life span and improve physical capabilities. When dealing with the elderly, there are common changes that occur. Firstly, the body will not be in as good of shape compared to the past and secondly, experiences encountered may have an affect on your life, such as; friends passing away etc. Therefore, when dealing with elderly, the programs need to be created with these aspects in mind. Three main areas dealing with improvements are; Physical, Emotional, and Mental. When the body is changing you start to rely on others to help you with daily chores and activities. Sometimes, families are not willing to help those in need and go through the feeling of......

...Voluntary experience at Activity Recreation and Care Name Professor’s Name Course Title Date Disability is not inability: Voluntary experience at Activity Recreation and Care Introduction As a student undertaking special education course, I have learnt a lot not only from the classroom but also from outside the class. The course has enabled me to address the individual differences and requirements and I have developed an opportunity to immerse myself to disability culture. Through this experience, I have been able to expand my understanding of disability as a culture and outline some of the supports as well as the services that individuals with disability can access in the community. The course has been a stepping stone towards my agenda of ensuring those with disabilities throughout the United States have received equal treatment and equal services since they are human despite their different physical appearance. As part of the course requirement, I started my 30 hours volunteering on April 15th 2015 at Activity Recreation and Care (ARC).

...Flea Market Observation Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectable Market Another man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This is exactly what goes down at the Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectable Market at Veterans Stadium. I had the pleasure of visiting this event last week. Let me tell you, this experience was one for the books. Being a rookie towards the flea market/ swap meet experience I had no idea what to expect. Doing a little research, I stumbled upon a definition that gave me a little foundation of what I was getting myself into. By definition, flea markets are "regularly recurring event involving the participation of several vendors of used merchandise, collectibles, discounted new merchandise--but not exclusively new merchandise at list price" (Werner 1996). This event is a multicultural leisure context. It’s filled with people of all races, heritages and religions. They are either setting up a booth to make some sort of income, came to spend some money on an awesome toy, or just came to enjoy the scenery and absorb some this splendid environment. It has got everything from vintage clothing to furniture. There are vendors selling jewelry, boots, sunglasses, art, hats and more! From the Mexican vendors, to trendy young-adults trying to launch their brand, the trading post fell nothing short of diverse. Languages such as Spanish, Chinese and other Chinese dialects could be heard throughout the tents as vendors communicated with each other......

Recreation Tourism & Management "Play"

...How would you define child’s play? Is it the act of a child’s freedom, is it separate and independent enjoyment, or is it freely chosen depending on the situation. According to Brown (2009), he defines play as “…play is a very primal activity. It is preconscious and preverbal…” (p.16). However, according to Caplan & Caplan, they define play as “a voluntary activity which permits freedom of action, diversion from routines, and an imaginary world to master”. The concepts that are being touched on between the two authors Play by Stuart Brown and The Power of Play by Caplan & Caplan are fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and negotiation. First, what are the basic definitions of these three concepts? According to, negotiation is defined as, “mutual discussion and arrangement of the terms of a transaction or agreement”, Encyclopedia of Children’s Health defines fine and gross motor skills as “gross motor skills are the abilities required in order to control the large muscles of the body for walking, running, sitting, crawling, and other activities”, “fine motor skills generally refer to the small movements of the hands, wrists, fingers, feet, toes, lips, and tongue” (2009). Combined with fine and gross motor skills physical development/activity is and outcome of these concepts. In other words both of these concepts have something to do with being active. Therefore, what are the concepts that Brown and Caplan & Caplan are giving towards physical and personality...

Community Recreation

...Community and Recreation: Community Recreation Community The Merriam- Webster (2012) defines community as a unified body of individuals with common interests living in a particular area. A community is also a local grouping within which people carry out a full round of life activities. Although families or other groups can sometimes be relatively self-sufficient, most of them do not live in isolation. For many reasons, ranging from economic interdependence to shared cultural values, families and other groups normally join together to form communities. The community, rather than the family, becomes the social setting for most everyday economic, political, religious, educational, recreational and similar activities. As communities become larger and more complex, other types of organizations are often established within the community to perform these various functions. Thus, a community is a type of social organization that is territorially located and provides the setting for dealing with most of the needs and problems of daily living. Communities vary widely in size and complexity. Recreation McLean and Hurd., (2011) defines recreation as a network of public agencies that provide such facilities as parks, playgrounds, aquatic centers, sports fields, and community centers in thousand of cities, towns, and countries. Recreation is also defined as any activity performed during one’s leisure or free time. Recreation is very essential element of human......
