Summer camps are allowed to take place in Dubai, as of Saturday July 4.
A document from the government said that all summer camps running in all types of facilities including child centres, schools, hotels, sports clubs and gyms, libraries and art centres are allowed.
They camps may only run in entertainment facilities that have reopened, and not at nurseries.
Cleaning and sterilisation must be in place and camps are encouraged to have a designated hygiene officer in place. Staff and visitors must wear face masks and social distancing of two metres must be in place.
Events, parties and social gatherings are not permitted. A staggered pick-up and drop-off is encouraged.
In addition to online registration forms provided by the summer camps, it is encouraged to add a declaration section relevant to COVID-19 in order to be able to trace and monitor any participants arriving from abroad or being in contact with individuals coming from abroad or with a confirmed COVID-19 case.
All equipment in camps, such as toys, books, scissors, pens, pencils, crayons, arts and crafts materials and messy play resources as well as roleplay and other materials should be sanitised after each and every single use where possible. Toys are to be sanitised after use, and immediately removed from play if sneezed on, coughed on or put in the mouth. It is recommended that children get their own exclusive stationery items whenever possible.
No buffet should be offered during breaks and lunches, and camp attendees are encouraged to bring their own food. Pre-packed F&B is allowed, as long as it follows necessary guidelines for the sector, using only disposable containers with frequent sanitisation, while a distance of two metres should be maintained between tables.
Meanwhile fun fairs, escape rooms, soft play facilities, indoor playground and adventures and more are also allowed to reopen. For more information, click here.
