Apple Retail Announces 2015 Interactive Summer Camps for Kids

Apple has opened registration for its annual Apple Camp three-day workshops where kids aged 8 to 12 can visit a retail store and learn how to make movies or create interactive books using software such as GarageBand, iBooks Author and iMovie on iPad and Mac. This year's two free workshops are called "Stories in Motion with iMovie" and "Interactive Storytelling with iBooks."

Apple Camp Retail 2015
Apple's summer workshops will be hosted between 11 AM and 12:30 PM local time, on various dates from July 20 to August 7, in the United States, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Parents are recommended to sign up early since space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

"Stories in Motion with iMovie" teaches kids how to create their own movies, ranging from storyboarding ideas and shooting video to creating an original soundtrack in GarageBand on an iPad and editing in iMovie on a Mac. "Interactive Storytelling with iBooks" shows kids how to create their own interactive books by drawing illustrations on an iPad and adding sound effects and Multi-Touch features using iBooks Author.

Apple notes that children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the duration of each workshop.

Great idea. Set them up for a sedentary life style before puberty...staring at a screen all summer instead of getting out into the REAL world.

Do people like you even bother reading the article before bashing whatever Apple does?

11:00 am - 12:30 pm - these numbers might be hard to comprehend for you but for most normal people it says "not really that much time of a day".

Tech is the "REAL" world.

These are pretty good, but it would be even cooler if they had Xcode workshops :)
