Fourteen volunteers from Oxbridge Summer Camps Abroad (OSCA) taught the children speaking, listening and writing skills at four camps based in schools including Al Nukhba and Al Safaa for boys, and Al Ibdaa and Al Qiyam for girls.

This is the first OSCA to come to Dubai and was organised by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority. All of the students were awarded with certificates at the end of the four-week course.
