List of summer camps in Qatar to keep your children busy

This is probably the last week of studies for most of the schools in Qatar before they shut for the two-month summer break. This year, the vacation will run longer than usual for most schools as the reopening date is set for some time in the second week of September, after the Eid Al Adha break. It's a dilemma for most parents to find ways to keep their young ones occupied through the break as outside activities are very limited due to extreme heat.

There are many organizations and schools offering various activities for kids throughout the summer. We have collated a list of summer camps in Qatar to keep your kids occupied and on their toes.
