The Ramadan Creative Camps is a great way for a basic introduction to these fields, and SAE Dubai has taken the requirements of this sacred time into careful consideration while designing them.

Each of the camps will be led by experienced instructors and participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. All camps are for children aged 9 – 14 and for a duration of 25 hours, with the exception of Programming which has a module duration of 20 hours.
