Tourism summer camp celebrates its latest batch of graduates

Sixty students have graduated from a summer camp that hopes to inspire the country's next generation of tourism and culture ambassadors.

Dozens of Emirati students have completed a three-week summer camp teaching them about Abu Dhabi's tourism and leisure industry.

The sixty teenagers, aged between 15 and 17, who graduated from the programme received certificates at an awards ceremony held at the Yas Island Rotana Hotel.

The camp sought to boost awareness of the tourism industry and the emirate's cultural heritage through workshops and field trips, state news agency Wam said.

It is hoped the camp, set up by the Tourism and Culture Authority, will inspire the students to consider a future career in the tourism industry.
