There’s no reason for kids to be bored this summer when they can do cool stuff like create video games, compose music, make movies and program robots (bonus: it’s all free!). All this happens—plus lots of learning—at Apple Camp and the special kid-focused Today at Apple creative workshops at your local Apple store. Check out all they offer!

Apple Camp

This free three-day program of 90-minute sessions is for kids ages 8-12. Apple offers three different sessions: Coding Games and Programming Robots; Creating Characters and Composing Music; and Stories in Motion with iMovie.

The first two days are spent on projects, and the final day is a show-and-tell, where projects are presented to parents, family and friends.
