Apple Announces 2016 Summer Camps for Kids at Retail Stores

Apple has opened registration in the U.S. and a number of other countries (links below) for its annual Apple Summer Camp, where kids aged 8 to 12 can attend a company retail store and learn how to create interactive books and movies using Apple products and software, ranging from iBooks Author on Mac to iMovie on iPad.

Apple's summer workshops will be hosted between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. local time, on various dates between July 11 and August 12, 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 due to limited spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis.

This year's free workshops are called "Stories in Motion with iMovie" and "Interactive Storytelling with iBooks." A third workshop will be offered in the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom called "Coding Games and Programming Robots," in which kids will learn visual block-based coding for games, apply logic skills and problem solving, learn to program their own robots, and more.

Apple notes that children attending Apple Summer Camp 2016 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the duration of each workshop. Once their initial registration is confirmed, parents can register another child. All campers will receive a complimentary youth-size Apple Summer Camp t-shirt.

The kids would be wondering why the hardwares are so outdated.

Yeah 'cause 8 - 12 year olds are looking for Skylake and SSDs.
Get real.
This article is about Apple and Kids, not tech nerds.

My daughter did the iMovies one last year, and now she has a YouTube channel with 150 loyal followers.

I think the coding one will be good for this year.

Thank you, Apple for doing this!

You don't think their are kids who know their stuff?
Stay current.

If you're a kid speaking for kids then my apologies.
If you're a grown up pretending to speak for kids then my sympathy.

Lol I posted a link on educating kids in tech. Sad...


You said kids will be wondering why the hardwares [sic] are outdated in the Apple store. To prove your point, you linked to a $235 summer camp in two states. You did this under an article about free summer camps in hundreds os Apple stores.

BTW there are zero 9-12 year old kids that would find Apple's hardware outdated for anything they want to use them for. Same with the vast majority of grownups. You are an exception of course, because you are special.

I'm done with you, keep trolling if that makes you feel better about yourself.

Perhaps, but they probably just go for the free t-shirt.

We learn't to control robots in class in high school, and now Apple's doing the same..

The concept of a summer camp is the drop the child and leave.

Unfair :S

Yes like kids never do that anyway when they are in the apple store. With this they will actually be more contained.
