Dubai, UAE; June 14, 2010: A season of fun, nurturing of new skills and unprecedented adventure awaits the little ones this summer at The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination.
Emaar Retail, the entertainment and retail subsidiary of Emaar Malls Group, is introducing a refreshing The Dubai Mall Summer Camp this year, to be held from July 4 to September 9, with a range of activities for the young ones at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, Dubai Ice Rink, KidZania®, Reel Cinemas and SEGA Republic.
Among the highlights this summer is a joint The Dubai Mall Summer Camp for all five leisure and entertainment components from 9am – 3pm.
