Apple Retail Announces 2013 Summer Filmmaking Camps for Kids

As it has in prior years, Apple is offering free summer camps for kids 8-12 at its retail stores, this year focusing on filmmaking with iMovie. The classes span three days, 90 minutes per day, with an introduction to the basics of movie making, GarageBand on the iPad, iMovie on the Mac, and then a film festival on the third day to screen movies for family and friends. The screenings are optional.

Apple also provides an optional, one-hour Parents Workshop on the first day that teaches parents how to set up parental controls on Apple devices.

Applecamp
At Apple Camp, kids ages 8-12 learn how to shoot their own footage, create an original song in GarageBand on an iPad, and put it all together in iMovie on a Mac. This free workshop, held at Apple Retail Stores, spans three days and ends with campers debuting their masterpieces at the Apple Camp Film Festival. Space is limited and workshops fill up quickly, so sign up now for a super-creative adventure.
The first groups begin in mid-July, running through early-August. Some stores are already filling slots, but others have wide-open availability.

Interested parents can register for sessions on Apple's website for U.S. and Canadian stores, while parents in Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, can register to be notified when registration opens in their countries.

Missed out last year, but managed to get two grandkids enrolled this year.

I don't expect miracles, but I believe that the kids will have fun, learn a bit and, in the end, drive their parents nuts. WHich is what grandparents are for.

The closest Apple Store to Melbourne, Florida (where I live) is in Orlando (1 hour drive), and they have two stores within a 10 minute drive! Yikes.


The closest Apple Store to St. John's, Newfoundland (where I live) is in Halifax (20 hour drive including 9 hour ferry), next one is Quebec City (10 hours further), and after that there are four in Montreal (2.5 hours).

TL;DR Man up.

Without this post, I'd've never known about it, but even with this post, I was just able to secure the last possible wait list spot at my local Apple store! Just 2 hours after this article posted.

Is there a specific time this is announced each year? Is it always June 20th?
Thanks for any info. There was little on the website.

Yeah, in two 90 minute sessions I'm sure kids are going to learn how to make something truly magical :rolleyes:


Two 90 minute FREE sessions. Geesh, lets call Apple and tell them not to bother since clamnectar doesn't approve.
