Dolphinarium Summer Camp Makes a Splash
Now in its fourth week, the five-week Kids Summer Camp at Dubai Dolphinarium has already filled the summer holidays of over 100 children between the ages of 4 and 12 with fun, learning and adventure.
Since the Camp’s commencement on July 4, 2010, campers have enjoyed a multitude of interactive classes, entertainment activities and arts projects. The highlights of the programme are the Dolphinarium’s Live Dolphin and Seal Show and the Dolphin Encounter, during which campers get an insight into the dolphins’ lives behind the scenes.
Mr. Noli De Asis, the Arts & Crafts Teacher at Dubai Dolphinarium said: “Through a balanced combination of educational and entertainment activities, each child is challenged while having fun. Many children have discovered new talents, such as singing, art, and acting.”
“The main goal is for the campers to understand that they have the capability to do whatever they put their minds to,” De Asis added.
Vanessa Kricere, a camper, 8, said: “At the Camp, I have danced, played volleyball, practiced public speaking and storytelling, recycled plastic, modeled from clay and learned about marine conservation. I have become friends with the other kids and the dolphins.”
Each child registered for the Kids Summer Camp receives a Posh gift hamper consisting of a limited edition designer bottle and a t-shirt, a Fun City voucher, a Hello Kitty voucher, a Cool Sun juice, and a Dubai Dolphinarium Free Child Entry coupon. On Mondays and Tuesdays, Babyshop entertains the campers with a magic show, face painting and balloon bending. On Thursdays, Sanrio holds a drawing competition, and three lucky winners take home Dh 250 worth of Babyshop gift vouchers every week.
The camp is sponsored by Babyshop, Virgin Megastore, Sanrio, Cool Sun, Children’s City, Arabian Center, Khaleej Times, Connector, Radio Spice and Dubai Sports Council. The event is managed by Ad Pack Six. Tickets can be purchased at Dubai Dolphinarium and at Virgin Megastores in Dubai.
