It's very popular last year and it's free even including a free T-shirt for the kids. Quick to reserve! The robot one is the most popular.

Discover amazing camps for kids at the Apple Store.

Join Apple Summer Camp, a free, three-day programme for kids aged 8 to 12. They’ll broaden their creative horizons by making movies, creating interactive books, and more using Apple products.

Camps for summer 2017.

Creating Characters and Composing Music
Kids aged 8 to 12 will create their own stories through drawings and sounds. Campers will start their session by sketching characters and scenes with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, then they’ll explore the basics for composing a track using GarageBand. They’ll bring their story to life by adding vocals and finishing touches.

Stories in Motion with iMovie
Future filmmakers aged 8–12 will explore the creative process of turning their ideas into real movies. In this three-day session, Campers will learn how to brainstorm and storyboard. Then they’ll get hands-on with movie-making techniques like learning camera angles and editing with iMovie. On the final day, they’ll present their masterpieces.

Coding Games and Programming Robots
In this three-day session for kids aged 8 to 12, we’ll introduce programming through interactive play. Kids will learn visual-based coding by solving puzzles with Tynker. Then they’ll learn how to programme Sphero robots, and even create fun stories starring Sphero as the main character.

Mostly between 24/7 to 11/8, depending on locations.
My son did the coding one last year and really enjoyed it - think it was three days, two hours each. He got the free tshirt also

He's too old now sadly - wish they ran a class for teens

I'd think that I'd died and gone to hell oO.

Do they send any of the profit to the sweat shop assembly lines?
Thank you.. Would never have known about them.

Doesn't matter what educational motivation and learning kids gain from it we still need to judge them on based on our own prejudice rather than look at the benefits

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to communicate here, sorry.
Signed up my Daughter for the iMovie sessions at MK. Thanks very much OP
I honestly find this whole concept highly unethical. You can just imagine the meeting between the top guys at apple and their marketing team....

"How can we lure more people into using Apple products?"

"Well, I think we should get them using our stuff at an earlier age, get them hooked on the Apple brand as early as possible"

"Brilliant, lets set up some brainwashing sessions and dress it up as a fun free summer camp"

Not just that, I expect the whole thing can be written off against however little tax they pay.. Got to hand it to them though nice little trick.
I thought it's about one of these labour camps where you work for (almost) free making Apple products

90% of development is done on PC's all my developers use PC's as they are coding for industrial applications. Mac development is mainly for leasure and media applications.

I bet they don't use what everyone else uses to teach kids to code......a £30 Raspberry Pi! No they will be using expensive Apple kit to promote it.
Don't care what anyone says this is unethical product promotion.
I had a look at this on my mobile this morning without my glasses on so squinting and I was confused by the accompanying picture of the cup winning Pakistani cricket team
If the child is slightly older, ie 14 do they restrict them from coming?

Not sure about slightly older but mine was slightly younger for the 2016 summer camp and no problem at all. No ID or age check.

Yep but not as bad as Microsoft almost giving away their software to schools. Every kid is taught how to use Windows and MS Office and are exposed to nothing else meaning when they get out into the world of work that is all they know...

All businesses use Windows and Microsoft products. It's useful to know how they work.

I'm a big fan of Apple gear but this sounds really creepy.

My point exactly, if schools taught and used a variety of options rather than just MS we might still have competition! Remember all the choices we used to have back in the 80s/90s?

Schools are there to prepare children for industry, which the vast majority of uses Microsoft products.
