The Dubai College of Tourism is calling ten- to 13-year-olds to get involved in a bespoke course that could tee them up to become the city’s next big hotelier, events planner or restaurant bigwig.

The DCT Summer Camp focuses on five core disciplines: tourism, retail, culinary arts, events and hospitality.

It’s time to turn pretend games into reality and practise looking after others for real through engaging learning.

Dubai’s position as a leading tourism and cultural destination will be taught through a programme of classroom-based activities combined with fun, educational day trips to popular Dubai attractions.

It includes playing activities at the huge indoor Dubai Sports World, going behind the scenes at Atlantis The Palm's Lost Chambers, visiting The Green Planet, learning how the Burj Khalifa was built and cooking classes.

It runs from Sunday July 7 to Thursday July 18 – with students able to enroll in either week or both.

Each day will be dedicated to one of the five vocational courses available through the college, giving participants a taster of what they could learn as a student at DCT with activities designed to encourage curiosity and engaged learning.

Essa Bin Hadher, general manager of DCT, said: “Students will not only learn what life is like at our college, but they will also gain an understanding of the various aspects of Dubai’s tourism industry.”

The week-long course is priced at Dhs800, while it costs Dhs1,400 for the fortnight.
