Three top creative summer camps in Dubai

Dunecrest American School
An Ivy League-inspired summer camp? Sounds good to us. Esol Education and Ivy Camps USA have partnered together to host a programme at Dunecrest American School for kids aged five to 12.

Inspiring young ones to think creatively while building their confidence and helping them discover their passion, expert advisors taking part in the two-week sessions include a Hollywood producer, a global business owner, a neuroscience engineer, a professional athlete and an entrepreneur.

Starting early August, kids will have access to world-class learning facilities at the school’s campus at the camp, with daily meals and snacks included. Ivy Camps’ Dubai offers three tracks, Build Your Own Business, Performing Arts and the Junior Ivy Program.
Dhs1,950 (per week). Aug 4-8, Aug 11-15, 9am-3.30pm. Dunecrest American School, Wadi Al Safa,

Ora Nursery of the Future
Dinosaurs may still exist, and we have the summer camp to prove it. Young explorers aged one to four will delve into a prehistoric world – right here in Dubai – with activities where they’ll learn while having fun through augmented reality, science experiments and sensory concepts such as constructing their own dino glow garden.

Kids will be divided according to age group for tailored learning materials that showcase the best of Jurassic times.
From Dhs250 (day rate), from Dhs1,050 (weekly rate). Jun 30-Aug 29, 8am-12.30pm (half day), 8am-6pm (full day). Emirates Towers, DIFC,

Splash ‘n’ Party
For kiddies who love splashing about, and more, this camp will be filled with activities including water aerobics, robotics, a science lab and even some culinary fun. From 9am-11am, kids will have access to splash pads and slides, the bungee trampoline, dunk tank and more. They can do everything from going on treasure hunts to zip lining and putting on a show.

From 11am-2pm, a line-up of indoor programmes such as robotics, board games, table tennis, boxing, archery and air hockey will keep them cool while they enjoy some tasty kids’ meals.
Dhs499 (per week). Jul 7-Aug 29, 9am-2pm. Al Safa 2, Jumeirah,
