25 to try: Spring camps
Keep your kids entertained through the Easter/Spring holiday
The whole caboodle
If your kids are into everything, and you have more than one that needs to be kept busy, consider a multi-activity programme. There are plenty of camps around town that offer everything from swimming sessions and football to crafts, drama, music and games sessions. Added bonuses include sibling discounts, the need to do only one drop-off and, if your younger child is a bit shy, the benefit of having big bro or sis around to give them a bit of support. We like E-Sports Holiday Camps, which offer every kind of activity you could throw a flip-flop at, including rock climbing, drama, dodgeball, IT club, tennis, soccer, swimming, cricket, hockey, relay games, gymnastics, basketball, arts and crafts and more. Transport to and from the camps is provided and siblings get a bargainous 20 per cent discount. Ages 4-14, Dhs125 (daily) Dhs750 (five days). 8.45am-2pm. Jumeirah Primary School, Wellington International School, Wellington Primary School, GEMS World Academy, Royal Dubai School, Winchester, and Wafi, April 3-14. 050 361 1547; www.esportsdubai.com.
