Summer camp in Abu Dhabi

School’s out for the summer and The National Aquarium Abu Dhabi (TNA) is welcoming all kids staying in Abu Dhabi during the holidays for its first ever summer camp, an edutainment program that will include a combination of physical, engaging and brain-enriching activities. The camp runs on weekdays until August 26. Among other things, they will learn how to grow their own beans, observe tiny creatures under professional microscopes, and how to sort trash into recyclables and non-recyclables through fun games. Additionally, campers will get the chance to engage with the aquarium's resident animals and birds, detect garbage in a sea turtle's stomach, and receive an Animal Training 101 from the qualified animal trainers.
