Rabdan Academy, a distinguished institution focusing on safety, security, defense, emergency preparedness, and crisis management, has unveiled an extraordinary summer camp aimed at fostering the development of future leaders. The camp offers a unique platform for young individuals to enhance their skills and capabilities in various fields.
The camp, titled “Jahzeen Ya Watan,” is part of a comprehensive initiative in collaboration with relevant government and national entities.
The summer camp, scheduled to take place from 10th to 27th July, 2023, at Rabdan Academy’s main campus in Abu Dhabi, seeks to utilize students’ free time during the summer break by enriching their knowledge, skills, and abilities through a diverse range of educational and interactive activities and workshops.
This initiative focuses on several strategic pillars, including the development of leadership, community engagement and cultural skills of the participants.
It also aims to strengthen the national identity by introducing participants to prominent national characters and offering practical workshops, panel discussions, and community trips.
James Morse, President of Rabdan Academy, expressed the Academy’s commitment to human development and credited the UAE’s exceptional leadership for inspiring this initiative.
He emphasized that the camp is designed to provide participants with essential skills, knowledge, and abilities for a promising future. The programme aims to enhance self-reliance, independence, creativity, emotional intelligence, analytical and critical thinking, decision-making skills, communication with others, and other necessary skills for the current era.
The camp will feature many events, activities, exploratory field visits, and interactive workshops. Participants will engage in successful team-building activities, attend workshops on innovative and unconventional solutions, and benefit from specialized sessions on artificial intelligence, sustainability, communication and presentation skills, leadership, social media management, personal growth, and development.
In addition to these educational aspects, the camp will offer various competitions, recreational activities, and interactive experiences like crime scene simulations, first aid training, safety and fire prevention skills, time management exercises, and more. As part of a unique approach, Rabdan Academy students from master’s, bachelor’s, and diploma programmes will participate in the camp’s activities, facilitating the transfer of knowledge and expertise to the next generation.
