Children of Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) employees, taking part in the Company’s annual Summer Camp, visited Youth City 2030 to spend a fund day out and learn useful skills in science, technology, innovation, media and the arts.


GPIC President Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery said Youth City 2030 is a very pioneering initiative that would contribute to the development of students' abilities and build their personalities, while encouraging their talents.

Dr. Jawahery thanked the Chairman and members of the Social Activities Committee for their continuous efforts to enable children to benefit from various institutions to order to develop their own programmes offered at the Summer Camp. He said these activities now provide more useful activities for students.


Dr. Jawahery noted the excellent level of preparation for the camp and expressed confidence in the good results that would follow.  


He said such participation encourages students to experience new and useful things. “These programmes will contribute to providing an enjoyable time, away from daily stress, and allow participants to make new friends and develop their social skills.”


Dr. Jawahery called on parents to ensure that their children are included in the programmes because of its benefits, the most important being its contribution to building self-confidence through interaction with others, gaining experience and improving respect.


GPIC has organised the camp since 2005 for children to utilize the summer vacations fruitfully. 

Activities include entertainment and leisure programmes, as well as trips organised to various locations in Bahrain. A large number of employees’ children make use of it to develop their intellectual and cultural skills while expanding their knowledge in a safe environment.

Youth City 2030 is part of the strategy of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, which aims to develop human capacities of Bahraini youth, in accordance with its programmes of action to prepare a promising generation. The project was launched to provide the best conditions for youth care, empowerment and mobilization.

The project, at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre, is spread over an area of 6,000 square meters and includes 14 scientific, training, technical, educational and recreational villages.
