Apple Launches 'Apple Camp at Home' Experience for Kids

Apple won't be able to hold its traditional Apple Camp sessions for children this year as Apple Camp takes place in Apple retail stores, so the company has debuted a digital version instead.


Apple Camp at home will provide kids aged 8-12 a series of digital programs focused on video, art, design, and coding.

Apple plans to offer a self-guided activity book for kids to complete, along with live virtual sessions with Apple Store Creatives.

Live sessions, which will be hosted over Webex, will last for 30 to 60 minutes, while the activity book Apple has created is a Pages document that kids can complete at their own pace.

Apple Camp registrations are not yet open, but parents can sign up to be notified when registrations become available on the Apple Camp website.

I decided to give two large iMacs to a couple of disadvantaged young people and their families. The iMacs are eleven years old and still working perfectly. Unfortunately Apple in latest upgrades as made all of their productivity software (iMusic, Numbers, Keynote, and Pages) unworkable on these older machines. They also have blocked all past MacOS updates so that they cannot be made workable by installing a past operating system. Funny thing is that the Microsoft Office software suite still works fine. So here are two families that will become fluent on Microsoft software but blissfully unaware of the productivity software of Apple. I suspect that they will go outside of the Apple eco system when buying their first new machines. Someone at Apple needs adult supervision

There are ways of downloading past OS versions and installing them on older hardware that supports them.
I do it frequently with 10.12 through to 10.14. might have some from earlier OS like 10.9 that should still work - haven't tested that one in a while, so not sure if it expires like the newer OS installers do (I'm pretty sure it doesn't, but would have to be tested to be certain)

You think this is what will get them staring at screens?
And if not for Apple, they would be screen-free?
