Children's City organizes summer activities

The Children's City has lined up an array of activities for children and visitors to the emirate of Dubai during the summer holidays. The activities, which will be conducted during 28 June to 20 August, include summer camp for children of different age groups and a variety of edutainment programmes.

Under the theme, "Special Summer," the summer activities are being conducted with the cooperation of Wyeth, Al Mutanabbi Bookshop and Malik Burger.

Naila Al Mansouri, Head of Children's City said the activities are arranged to be conducted during the Dubai Summer Surprises 2009. "Dubai Municipality is keen to provide programmes beneficial for children during this period so that they can utilize their holidays usefully in an excellent recreational, cultural and informational environment, managed by supervisors with high calibre and competency," she said.

Al Mansouri said the programmes charted out by the Children's City are quite different from other summer programmes as the families can leave their children at the Children's City without any worries.
