Apple is inviting children aged between eight and 12 to attend this year’s summer camp.

Its sessions give kids the chance to learn art, coding, design, music, and moviemaking. They’re all free, but you’ll need to register for a place in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico starting June 17.

Apple Camp is a great way for kids to learn new skills during summer break. It offers multi-day programs on a variety of topics all with a technology angle — and it won’t cost you a penny.

Apple hasn’t yet confirmed what the sessions will involve this year, but we can get an idea of what to expect from Apple Camp in Singapore, which kicks off next week.

Apple Camp teaches music, movies and more

There, Apple is giving kids the opportunity to learn music-making in GarageBand, design with iPad and Apple Pencil, and moviemaking with Clips and iMovie. There’s also a three-day session on coding.

These programs might differ in some markets, but we expect Apple to offer similar things in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico this summer. It says kids can choose to explore music, coding, moviemaking, or art and design.

Each session lasts 90 minutes and takes place in an Apple Store between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on weekdays. Apple says all “campers” must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.

Register June 17

You’ll be able to register for a spot in Apple Camp starting June 17. Places usually fill up fast, so try not to apply too late.
