Olympic fun for kids in Abu Dhabi

Culture spot Alliance Francaise launching Mini Olympics

Abu Dhabi youngsters can get in the Olympic spirit two years early – thanks to Alliance Francaise launching a fun-packed camp.

The cultural hub is inviting kids aged four and over to sign up for the Mini French Olympic Camp from next week – and hone more than just their sporting skills.

As well as enjoying an array of sporty games, little Olympians can forge new friendships, learn about marine species, go equestrian riding, improve their French and much more.

The camp will run from February 11 until Friday 15 at Alliance Francaise Abu Dhabi, from 9am until 2pm each day.

The camp costs Dhs250 per day or Dhs1,159 for the entire week.

An Alliance Francaise spokesman said: “Have a lot of fun and make new friendships during the February holidays. Enjoy a week of challenges, sports and many other surprises while improving your French in a friendly atmosphere.”

Dhs250 (per day), Dhs1,159 (for the week). Feb 11-15 9am-2pm. Alliance Francaise Abu Dhabi, Villa 75, Al Bateen (02 612 2900).
