Fun City, the region's foremost entertainment center is committed to providing children with wholesome fun during the holidays with Summer Fun, a 2 month long summer camp for kids 3 - 8 years old. Fun City's Summer Fun started with great excitement amongst all children as they engaged themselves in meaningful play at various Fun City centers with children of all nationalities.

Summer Fun started on 24 June and is running till 16 August. Fun City promises days of endless fun and entertainment. The Summer Fun programme includes various activities like Arts and Crafts, Music and Dance, Children's Theatre, Interactive Cooking, Junior Scientist and Martial Arts. Kids bubbling with energy get a chance to constructively engage in physical and creative activities within a safe and comfortable environment.

The activity schedule is designed to be age appropriate, appealing and of course, fun! Children are given a chance to take part in group activities that allow them to develop critical social skills and make new friends. Trained Play Facilitators supervise the activities closely but give the kids enough room to make choices, develop their own natural talent and have fun in the process. Kids also get a chance to go on field trips once a week to various venues that are either fun or educational.

Fun City has sponsored 10 underprivileged kids from Red Crescent to participate in Summer Fun for an entire month. Fun City is hoping that this opportunity to join in their Summer Camp will help boost the children's self-esteem and give them a chance to just be kids in a safe and happy environment.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Silvio Liedtke, General Manager, Fun City said, "Fun City is a social playground of kids from different walks of life. We at Fun City provide these kids with a social platform for interaction in addition to the numerous experiences of Play. By hosting these under privileged children from Red Crescent to spend a month at the Summer Fun, we hope to provide these kids with an experience of learning and social development through interaction with other children enrolling for the camp and participating in various activities at Summer Fun.

Fun City is taking a step forward to integrate these kids in mainstream life which will facilitate and augment their overall personality", he added.

Mr. Mohamed Abdullah Al Haj Zarouni, Red Crescent Authority - UAE (Dubai branch) said, "We praise this social responsibility showcased by Fun City which reflects the importance of bringing together under privileged children within the normal environment. We are happy to have been chosen by Fun City for this noble cause. We believe in joining forces with the business community and other organizations to leverage charity and humanitarian work. I seize this opportunity to thank all those who are contributing to make this possible".

Summer fun is open from Sunday to Thursday from 10am-2pm across 7 stores, lunch and snacks are served daily and each child receives a cool Summer Fun T Shirt upon registering. Transport is available on selected routes. Enquire at the store closest to you for more details.
