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    The kids would be wondering why the hardwares are so outdated.

    My son did the iBooks one a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. Still wears the T-Shirt (Getting a bit small now though).

    He would have LOVED the coding one they've added this year, but the last day of the course is the day we go on holiday so we can't make it. Shame.

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

    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.

    Where is the third option? If you got a family member who is a kid and loves tech....I'm sorry.

    The link has not been added to the U.S. or Canada pages, but I linked directly to the registration page in the article.

    Here they are: United States / Canada.

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

    This is so frustrating. My 8 year old autistic child would absolutely adore the programming one, but we're on holiday that week.

    I found out he's already installed iOS 10 on his iPad (using my developers account - cheeky £$$£##£"!) and is enjoying Swift Playgrounds :)

    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..

    Lol. Not all kids are mature but there are some kids that grew up to love these things.
