2019 Apple Camp registration for kids this summer is open now. This year’s Apple Camp is scheduled from July 7th to August 3rd in the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, South Korea, Japan, Spain, Australia, Sweden, UAE, and other major countries of the world. In the United Kingdom, China, Taiwan, and Austria, the registration will begin from June 24th.
In Apple Camp, Kids between the ages of 8 to 12 are given different kinds of sessions and the opportunity to explore at the Apple Stores. The program is an extension of Today at Apple, providing an outlet for creativity and the opportunity to learn new skills like coding, music, moviemaking, art, and design. Kids are given sessions on coding, music, moviemaking, or art and design by participating in various free 90-minute hands-on sessions at the store. Apple said all the participant kids must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian while attending these sessions.
The Apple Camp has been named Apple Summer Camp in Singapore and programs at Singapore can really give us quick sneak peek about what Apple has in mind for other countries also. Here’re the sessions according to its webpage that will be given to kids this year’s camp, take a look:
