The modern, technology-driven lifestyle has everyone hooked to their tech gadgets. It’s hard to imagine a person who doesn’t own a smartphone, right? You would certainly call them a man of the medieval age.

Adults aside, kids, too, spend an unhealthy amount of time in front of their screens. The purpose could be anything; studies, entertainment, browsing, etc. The fact, however, cannot be denied that there’s a lot of screen time that can have an impact on their overall health.

The need of the hour is to help kids get regular device detox. It’s tough but not impossible. Let’s delve deeper and know why kids need regular device detoxes and how we, at Aventura Parks, can help in this regard:

Device Detox for Kids – The Need of the Hour

Life Beyond Tech Gadgets

When the world wasn’t so technologically-driven, children used to spend a lot of time outdoors, making friends, playing games or simply enjoying each other’s company. However, things have changed drastically now. The whole world has now smitten in a smartphone. Thus, kids no longer feel the need for going outdoors. Provide them with a smartphone or any other tech gadget, and you will see them being hooked to it all day long.

On the other hand, a device detox, even for a little while, can help your little ones to learn that there’s a life beyond tech gadgets. Surely, they will complain of being ‘bored’, but this is going to provide them with an opportunity to look for other activities that do not involve screen time.

Nurture Amidst Nature

Device detox can help kids to nurture amidst nature. When they are not so engrossed playing games on their devices, they will get the time to appreciate nature. And spending time in nature has many benefits. It has been proven in studies that kids become more confident, happier, and less stressed when they spend time in nature.

Focus on Physical Health & Fitness

Want to make your kids healthy and fit? Encourage them to give their tech gadgets some rest for a while and spend time outdoors. Arrange some fun games for them that can improve their physical fitness, which ultimately will help to have a positive impact on their overall health.

How Can Aventura Parks Help with Device Detoxes?

When you think of it, there are many parks in Dubai where kids can play outdoors. Most of them are designed in a way that kids spend some fun time away from their gadgets. However, there isn’t much scope for connecting with nature or focusing on physical health and fitness. This is what sets Aventura Parks apart from other outdoor parks.

This one-of-its-kind outdoor adventure park is more than a place where you can bring your kids to play some outdoor games. It’s a full-fledged facility that brings them closer to nature, helps them learn new things, and improve their fitness – all while they have a lot of fun.

Here’s how Aventura can help kids with device detoxes:

Nature Trail

Aventura Nature Trail packs in everything. It is a guided one-hour trip that will let your little ones explore the flora and fauna of the country along with taking part in various fun activities. They will be accompanied by other kids around the same age. So, apart from learning and getting connected to nature, it provides them with a chance to socialize and make new friends. During this journey, our experienced guide will help them identify various species of plants and animals.

This nature trail for kids includes more than 30 different points of interest, allowing kids to discover something new. Children are provided with a colorful nature trail booklet featuring a map of the park and various fun activities. A boneyard activity is also part of this trail. A favorite among kids, it includes kids digging up for skeletal treasures. They have to identify the animals based on these treasures. Furthermore, kids get to interact with Aventura pets as well.

The journey ends with an interactive Q&A session that takes place in the Aventura Nature tent.

Aventura Camps

Aventura Parks organize specialized summer and winter camps for kids to help them become more confident, learn survival skills and have a lot of new experiences, which one cannot have at home when they are spending most of their time using their tech gadgets.

A variety of fun outdoor and indoor activities are part of Aventura camps that can be classified into different categories, including:

  • Science Made Fun

So, from building a shelter to preserving water, creating science experiments to ziplining, showcasing their talent to spending time with animals, kids get to do a lot at nature camps that can help them develop key skills while having the time of their lives. The mid-term camp at Aventura concluded in October. However, you can enroll your little ones in the winter camp that takes place in December-January.
