Dubai: Dubai Municipality is set to launch the temporary winter camping season from October 17, 2023, until the end of April 2024. The Municipality set up a family-friendly and practical camping area for visitors in the Al-Awir area of Dubai to enjoy a beautiful desert camping experience.
The camping is part of the Municipality’s initiative to provide high-quality services to ensure people’s happiness and wellbeing, further supporting Dubai’s goal of being the best city in the world to live and work in. Additionally, the Municipality has ensured the availability of necessary equipment, services, and amenities at all camping areas to enhance campers’ experiences and promote safe and comfortable camping.
The Municipality stated that after winter camp permits are issued, applicants can construct their own camping space with a temporary fence and arrange it according to their wants and requirements, as long as it is for family usage.
Dubai Municipality has established a series of rules intended to manage camping as well as ensure secure and safe recreational activities. These requirements include adhering to the camp’s temporary private use by the permit holder and not using or leasing it to third parties or for other commercial purposes, as well as abiding by laws, customs, rituals, and traditions.
The conditions further include the importance of ensuring public health and safety, maintaining hygiene, and maintaining the good appearance of the campsite. It also states the significance of following civil defense requirements for fire prevention and safety, including providing a fire extinguisher inside the camp, prohibiting the use of fireworks, driving sand bikes inside the camp area, and refraining from using floodlights and speakers.
