Kuwait: Shout out to all young campers: KidZania’s Summer Camp is back again this year with “kooler” and more exciting workshops! Starting May 28 till the end of summer, children across Kuwait will get to enjoy and engage in a variety of interactive and fun workshops – in an indoor setting – that is guaranteed to beat the summer heat while keeping them “kool”.
From building self-esteem, developing imagination and creativity, to enhancing communications and social skills, there is something for every child at the Summer Camp. Visitors can select from a variety of a day, weekly, 2 week or 3 week packages that allows them access to more than 25 workshops themed around KidZania’s five characters and their interests.
At a great price value, children can customize their own camp plan by choosing the workshops that best cater to their interests – from physical challenges, science experiments, archaeology discoveries, cooking classes and fashion designing, to brainy riddles and problem-solving games, and much more!
Fernando Medroa, Vice President of Leisure and Entertainment at M.H. Alshaya Co. said: “The long hot summer in Kuwait leaves parents with very limited options to keep their children engaged and make good use of the summer time break. Therefore, we decided to come up with a diverse and affordable summer program that caters to the needs and wants of every child out there, be it the science and tech-savvy, the dedicated athlete, or the poised fashionista. The activities are designed in an indoor setting that allows much freedom and independence for children to be able to learn and grow.”
Toddlers (2-4 years old) are also invited to tag along in a toddlers-especially designed area, where they can enjoy different physical and mental activities that are set to aid development of their motor, creative, social and movement skills, all whilst embarking on a fun exploration journey.
During the month of Ramadan, the Summer Camp working hours will be from Sunday to Thursday, 10 am till 3 pm. In addition to the fun camp workshops, participants will also have free hours of daily play in KidZania whilst making new friends and unforgettable memories.
Much more than a children’s museum or family entertainment center, KidZania takes interactive entertainment and learning to an entirely new level by combining role-playing with real life. KidZania creates a children-centric city experience designed to educate and inspire 4 to 14-year olds – from arriving at the airport, to visiting a city center to exploring the city streets. We replicate the real world in a safe and self-contained over 7,000 square meter children-sized city. As in the real world, children choose activities – such as being a police officer, doctor, journalist or a shopkeeper – and earn money which they can then spend or save. KidZania operates just like a real city complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy and recognizable destinations in the form of “establishments” sponsored and branded by leading multi-national and local brands. The facilities are designed to educate through experience, fostering the development of life skills, but from a children perspective – it’s all about fun.
KidZania, Inc., headquartered in Mexico, is privately held. This award-winning concept is recognized globally for its unique blend of entertainment and education for children. The first KidZania opened in Mexico City in 1999. There are currently 20 KidZania attractions in total including Monterrey, Mexico; Tokyo, Japan; Jakarta, Indonesia; Koshien, Japan; Lisbon, Portugal; Dubai, UAE; Seoul, South Korea; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Cuicuilco, Mexico; Santiago, Chile; Bangkok, Thailand; Mumbai, India; Cairo, Egypt and Istanbul, Turkey. To date, more than 20 million kids and parents have visited the facilities globally. The trajectory continues with more facilities in development, including locations in Singapore, Russia and the United States.
KidZania Kuwait is a (7,000 square meter) facility, located in The Mall – The Avenues and is operated by M.H. Alshaya Co.
