    Update: Apple Camp registration is now open. This year's programs run between July 7 and August 3 in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and select European countries like Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, and Switzerland. Registration begins June 24 in additional countries, including the United Kingdom and Hong Kong.


    Apple has announced that registration for its annual summer camp for kids opens June 17 in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

    At the camp, kids aged 8-12 will have the opportunity to explore music, coding, moviemaking, or art and design by participating in a variety of free 90-minute hands-on sessions at Apple Stores. As usual, Apple says all kids must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the duration of their visits.

    Last year's summer camp ran between July 9 and July 27, with sessions taking place on weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. local time. Multi-day programs included coding with Sphero robots, beat making and songwriting with GarageBand, and recording and editing short videos with Apple's Clips app for iPad.

    For a potential sneak peek, we can look at Singapore, where Apple Camp has been renamed to Apple Summer Camp ahead of its kickoff next week. There, it looks like the programs will be familiar this year:
    In previous years, kids who have attended Apple Camp have received a free t-shirt. Space is limited and usually fills up fast.

    This is so cool. Too bad the nearest Apple store is so far away.

    I actually didn’t know Apple offered this, but what a great way to start a younger demographic coding now or at least spark interest if even one of those kids finds interest in this to be part of the future as a coder, (Or) finds a passion for tech in general. Awesome stuff.

    I have a 7 year old who loves his MacBook Air and wants to learn more on using it to create.

    Have any MR readers had their children take part in the camp in previous years and care to share their insights? My son is too young but he should be able to attend next year.

    Cheers!

    I would love to see them learn how to upgrade Mac Pro components.

    ‘Mom, give me a couple of grand so I learn how to install gpu.”

    The classes are free, and Apple supplies the hardware.

    Try again?

    Ummm, ok :) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    But seriously, with four double-wide slots (three x16 and one x8) and plenty of power and cooling capacity, there’s a lot of potential for GPU upgrades. Personally I’m hoping for Nvidia drivers but that ship might have sailed.

    On-topic, I took my niece and nephew to this a few years ago and they had a blast. They learned how to use iMovie, then made a video and showed it to the other kids.

    This is very cool. Unfortunately impossible to do as the parent has to stay and we'll be working. I wish though. This would be great for my daughter.

    All three of my kids have taken these various classes at the Apple Store over the years. They're fun but nothing life changing. Kids get a free shirt and depending on the class, a USB drive. The movie/ebook making classes result in a product whereas the coding/robot class does not.
    I'd try and sign my 10 year old son up for this but on the morning of June 17 I'll be at Galaxy's Edge (star wars land at disneyland) and probably forget. the spaces go fast.
