Located on Dubai’s most famous stretch of coastline, the luxury family beach resort Jumeirah Beach Hotel is delighted to announce the return of its highly sought-after children’s Football Escapes camp this October half term.

The popular football camp will be welcoming football legends Michael Owen and Gary Cahill with support by a team of UEFA licensed coaches for an unforgettable half-term adventure. Running three separate camps over a three week period, the first will take place from 16 to 20 October with the second coached by Gary Cahill and third led by Michael Owen from 23 to 27 October and 30 October to 03 November respectively.

Taking place at Janat Al Bahar, the hotel’s events arena, against the backdrop of the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Football Escapes aims to give children aged between 5 and 15, of all playing abilities, an engaging yet fun environment to develop their game. Focusing on a wide range of elements, from shooting and decision-making to tactical awareness and technical skills, children will have an elevated platform to evolve their abilities, while also having the chance to make new friends.

The little ones will have two hours of fun and learning every day of the camp, and each child will receive a fully personalised Rascal x Football Escapes training kit and a medal on completion. On booking, they will also get a personalised video message from one of the ambassadors, along with a signed shirt to treasure as a souvenir of their incredible half-term holiday.

Recognised as one of the world’s best family hotels, Jumeirah Beach Hotel continues to redefine the holiday experience. When the kids aren’t on the pitch, they will delight in the hotel’s incredible family-friendly offering, from its five swimming pools and dedicated KiDS Club to its innovative FoodieKiDs menu, designed to revolutionise the way that children eat on holiday, and unlimited access to Jumeirah’s Wild Wadi Waterpark – undoubtedly a guest favourite! During their football-filled holiday, guests will have the chance to mingle with the football legends both on and off the pitch, as the ambassadors also choose to stay at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Upon booking, Football Escapes’ team of in-house travel consultants will be on hand to further enhance the guest experience, curating personalised itineraries for families and answering any questions they may have during their stay. 

For those that want their children to hone their football skills with the best of the best, there’s no better way to spend the October half term than at Football Escapes at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Prices for the camps start at GBP £650 per child, per camp not inclusive of flights or accommodation. For more information and to book a holiday, please visit: footballescapes.com/destinations/dubai
