The school winter break will soon be upon us, and this year many of us won’t be travelling due to the ongoing pandemic. So, children in Dubai face three weeks of lounging around at home. However, it needn’t be like that. One option is to send your child to an organised holiday camp in Dubai. These are fun and exciting for kids and a great way to keep them busy during their breaks in school. Here are some of the many benefits that a camp offers…
Camps keep kids busy
During your kids’ breaks from their regular school schedule, you have a few options. You can allow them to sit inside, stuck on their iPads and waste this break, or you can sign them up for a day camp where they will enjoy a variety of activities and have fun throughout the entire break.
It boosts their independence
Sending your child to a camp can also help boost their levels of independence, which can help them develop new skills and feel more comfortable doing things on their own. Children get an opportunity to thrive and grow on their own and will develop more confidence in doing things without you.
Children can try different activities
During camp, your child will spend the day doing a variety of activities. They will likely try something that they have never done before, whether that is a unique art project, building a robot or learning a new language. Your child may even find a new hobby after visiting camp. When your children get to try new things regularly, they can start finding out what they enjoy, what interests them, and teaches them more about themselves.
Time spent unplugged
Nowadays, it can be hard to keep your kids away from their phones, video games, or TV. While you can try to keep them busy and doing different activities that are more stimulating, eventually you will either run out of ideas or energy. A day camp will offer activities throughout the day, keeping them unplugged and doing things that can actually be beneficial.
Camps give everyone a break
A holiday camp in Dubai also gives you and your child a well-deserved break. For many parents, it can be hard to take a week off work. Not only can camps give you a break from stressing about your kids and what to do with them during their breaks, it can also save your annual leave for those times when you can actually travel.
