Expo 2020 celebrates Dubai’s new weekend with kids’ camps running until the end of the event


DUBAI, 06 January 2021 – Due to popular demand, little ones can continue to discover the world in one place, with the kids’ camps at Expo 2020 Dubai being extended to the end of the event’s epic run, with the Expo Weekend Camp now running every Saturday and Sunday from 8 January until 27 March.

Kids from the age of six to 12 are entitled to the complimentary three-hour drop-and-play Expo Weekend Camp. With 192 Country Pavilions to explore, and guided tours to ensure they enjoy the best edutainment on offer, weekends are about to get a lot more fun. Parents can make the most of the drop-and-go service by exploring the site at their own pace, or simply enjoying a relaxing coffee or a bite to eat at one of Expo’s numerous cafes, bars and restaurants.

From enjoying the colours, culture and South East Asian charm at the Thailand Pavilion – dubbed ‘Miracle of Smiles Pavilion’ – to being immersed in nature at the rainforest-inspired Singapore Pavilion or at the Spain Pavilion’s forest of intelligence, children will be engaged and enthralled every step of the way.Expo 2020 celebrates Dubai’s new weekend with kids’ camps running until the end of the event
