All our activities are at entry level which allows the child to participate and experience the basics of the activity. The main focus is on having fun, making new friends and developing physically, mentally as well as emotionally.
We group the children, boys and girls mixed, according to their ages which doesn’t differ more than two years within the groups. Our group ratios are 15:2 and when it comes to Aqua Fun, we have a qualified lifeguard, a level 2 swimming coach as well as an assistant with no more than 12 children in a group.
We always put the interest of children first. We aim to make them feel secure and happy from the moment they walk through our doors. The main focus is on having fun, making new friends and developing physically, mentally as well as emotionally.
A typical camp day will start nice an early where parents can drop their children off from 8am – 8.45am, the first activity will start at 9am. The camp day will consist of five 45 minute activity sessions. Within each session, the coaches will focus on a particular skill or sport for 15 minutes. Once this skill has been taught, the next 15min will focus on using that skill in an exercise which will finish the session with a 10 – 15min match. Children will take part in 2 activities followed by a 15 min snack break, another 2 activities followed by a 30 min lunch break. Finally, the last session will take place and pick up will commence from 1.30 – 1.45pm.
We ensure that all activities are held within state of the art indoor facilities in Dubai & Abu Dhabi. ESM Holiday Camps have access to all the schools gymnasiums, dance studios, swimming pools and classrooms to facilitate all and any activity which is required.
We advise parents to pack in swim wear all week even though aqua fun won’t take place every day. We recommend a packed lunch which consists of sandwiches, a snack and a refillable water bottle. All children should wear comfortable clothing in shorts and a T-shirt and wear trainers.
