For many children and teenagers, summer presents an opportunity to immerse themselves in some fun-filled activities and new experiences.
While this year's summer arrived amid unprecedented times in light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, different organizations in Qatar have put together summer camps and programs that children can enjoy from the comfort of their homes.
The camps cover a host of activities that will let participants pick on new skills, enhance their understanding of new topics, and just be part of something engaging.
Below are some camps being offered this summer:
Tarsheed Summer Camp
Like the last two year's Tarsheed has once again developed an interesting summer camp for children aged 7 to 14 years.
Titled 'The Pulse of Qatar is Our Goal,' the virtual summer camp aims to raise awareness about energy rationalization culture and to achieve the goals in reducing electricity and water consumption and harmful carbon emissions.
The ultimate goal is to enhance the understanding of ensuring energy efficiency and preserving the environment in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030, in addition to introducing sustainable development goals.
Those who wish to enroll can complete the registration process here, and view the activities on offer.
The camp will run until July 23.
