  • Is your child the next Steven Spielberg?


Fun for future filmakers

If you think you might have the next Steven Spielberg or Sofia Coppola on your hands, send them along to Emaar Retail’s Future Filmakers Summer Camp at Reel Cinemas. Culminating in a gala event on September 3 where films made by the children will be screened, kids from eight to 18 will learn the art of movie-making from script to screen. But hurry; the camp starts August 2, Dh1,500 per child,

Get wired!

Give kids a thrill at Wire World Adventure Park, new this year to Dubai Sports World. They’ll navigate a circuit of 4m-high wooden platforms, crossing fun bridges and gliding on ziplines along the way. Dh30 per person (one hour) for ages three to 12, and Dh35 per person for a five-minute session on the bungee trampoline, for ages four and up.


Mini movies

Barbie in Rock ‘N Royals sees Barbie starring as Princess Courtney, who ends up at Camp Pop instead of Camp Royalty. And in her place at Camp Royalty is Erika, a famous rock star. While the camp leaders try to sort out the mix-up, the girls learn both camps are to be closed down; can they put aside their differences and work together to save them? In UAE cinemas on August 20.
