Spring break is a vacation period for schools and universities that take place in early spring in the United Arab Emirates. The break in the UAE is observed between school semesters, usually between March and April. The annual spring break lasts for about 2 weeks.
During this time, many families enrol their children in spring break camps or plan outings and activities that they can enjoy together. Desert camping, visiting famous landmarks, going to the movies, or even planning an international trip has been some of the most favoured activities.
