Dubai: Children have a chance to interact with animals and participate in numerous activities as part of the Emirates Park Zoo and Resort 2018 Summer Camp.

Abu Dhabi’s leading private zoo destination announced that it is hosting their Children’s Summer Camp programme throughout July.

The summer camp activities include the K9 dog unit show, which was held on July 4. The session showcases a team of police dogs that are trained to handle various jobs to serve and protect the citizens.

The K9 Abu Dhabi Police Dog programme exhibits multiple skills and services, such as protecting their owners/partners, detecting narcotics, as well as patrolling unchartered territories.

The summer camp’s audience also witnessed different behaviours in a police dog in terms of alertness, obedience and how they perform duties under stress with minimum guidance.

“We want to incorporate a fun learning environment for the children by combining a series of activities they can enjoy from,” said Naima Mahmoudi, marketing manager at Emirates Park Zoo.

“Not only is the K9 unit a great resource for the city in adding a layer of protection, it also illustrates the talents and skills that these smart creatures possess,” she added.

The summer camp package is priced at Dh199 daily and Dh800 weekly and is open to children aged between 4 and 14 years. The programme is held from Sunday through Thursday, 8am to 2pm daily.
