If you’re starting to panic about how to keep the kids occupied over the next few weeks we’ve got three suggestions of great spring camps running near you:

Splash ‘n’ Party

Splash ’n’ Party is Dubai’s newest, coolest and most exciting aqua park for kids.The park is designed to cater to the entire family – Whilst the little ones have a blast on our splash pads and water slides, the parents can kick back and relax at our restaurant and juice bar.

This ‘splashtastic centre’, located in Jumeirah 1, has its own take on the traditional spring camp and the centre plans to keep kids occupied and entertained with over 12 activities, from Yogalates and Zumba to a Science Lab and Boot Camp.

Priced at AED 499 per week per child, their Spring Camp will be running from March 26th to March 30th, and then again from April 2nd to April 6th from 9.30 am to 2.30 pm.

British Orchard Nursery Spring Camp

The British Orchard Nursery welcomes the season with its spring camp, ‘Springnasium’. Slotted from 26th March to 6th April 2017, this time children will be treated to an active, sporty, and fun environment while they can breathe in fresh air, characteristic of the new season.

Themed around the concept of new life and growth, the camp is designed to spur youngsters to explore and challenge themselves physically at the exclusive GymJuniorz programme at the Nursery. Moreover, the Camp will have children dabbling with nature as they initiate into a new world of plants, animals, the glowing sun and the blue sky and experience beauty through vibrant colours, fun and play, paving way for creative juices.

Let your children unleash their energy and welcome the season with open arms, jump with joy in the rabbit-hole obstacle course and breathe in Mother Nature at the spring-theme yoga. Or they could be making paper plate gardens, hand and footprint flower frames and spoon bunnies as well as many more fun activities.

Running from Sundays to Thursdays from 9am to 2pm with an age group of 2 to 5 years. Fees across branches vary so contact your chosen branch for details.
