The Dubai College of Tourism (DCT), has announced the launch of its ‘Spring Tourism Camp’ programme, which offers an introduction to five disciplines; tourism, retail, culinary, arts, events and hospitality.
According to officials, the camp will “combine learning with entertainment to introduce Dubai as a world-class tourism and cultural destination, giving students an opportunity to experience first-hand the emirate’s diverse destination offering”.
Two separate week-long camps will be held. While the first camp, aimed at 14-16 year-old students, will start on March 31, the second camp targeting 11-13 year-old students will start on 7 April.
Each day of the five-day programmes will feature lessons and activities dedicated to the courses offered.
Commenting on the launch, Essa Bin Hadher, General Manager of DCT said, “Dubai College of Tourism is committed to empowering young talent, and our Spring Tourism Camp will offer students an innovative edutainment experience as they start to consider their future career options. Providing students, and parents, with an affordable and productive way of spending their upcoming school holidays, the camp’s programme of activities is designed to increase awareness of DCT, offering students a taste of the different courses available at the college. The camp is open for both Emiratis and expatriate students.”
As part of the camp schedule, classroom training will be conducted at DCT’s new college facility at One Central, in the Dubai World Trade Centre area.
