Club Med Sandpiper Bay
Club Bead Schedule and participation
Club Bead classes take place over three days – Friday, February 2nd through Sunday, February 4th. Students are divided up into groups, with each group taking classes from each instructor on rotating days, so everyone takes all three classes. Registration takes place on Thursday, February 1st; students can also make kit selections at that time. Note that kit costs are set by the instructors. Each instructor usually sends out a list of kit components in advance, in case students want to bring their own supplies.
Spouses, partners or guests are welcome to join students for a fun and relaxing retreat without classes. They will pay a reduced rate, which does not include class fee. Otherwise, they have full access to the Club Med facilities.
