Young Adventurers

Age Suitability

Sonora Resort enchants all ages and offers family and friends abundant ways to enjoy each other’s company amid Canada’s natural wonders. A rich array of activities and amenities await for young adventurers to explore. With guest comfort and safety in mind, some age and weight requirements apply to certain activities and amenities. Because of the wildlife on Sonora Island, it’s important to have adult supervision while exploring.


Children are defined as 5-15 years old, 16 years and older are defined as an adult, and those under the age of 4 stay complimentary at Sonora Resort. Children are welcome to join adults in their accommodation or can stay independently in their own rooms. We carry a limited selection of cribs, diaper genies, and small cots for kids that may be placed in a guest room at the request of the guest.
