What you need to know

  • Apple Camp is free for kids ages 8-12.
  • Sessions will be hosted digitally for attendees.

Apple has announced that its yearly Apple Camp will still occur this year, with a slight twist. This year's camp, rather than being hosted in a physical location, will be hosted online. Apple Camp at Home will bring digital programs to kids ages 8-12 for free in the form of a self-guided activity book as well as one-on-one virtual sessions with Apple Creatives.

"This summer, Apple Camp gives kids ages 8–12 free, fun, digital programs to experience from their favorite spot at home. Our easy-to-follow Activity Book shows your Camper new ways to create in video, art & design, and coding. We offer live virtual sessions for valuable guidance and to answer any questions you may have to make the most of your time at Apple Camp."

Sessions with Apple Creatives are split up into two different kinds: 30 minutes for an Orientation session or 60 minutes for a Q&A session. Both kinds of sessions will be hosted with attendees via Webex.

The self-guided activity book will require the Pages app in order to use it correctly. The Pages app is free and available to download for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac from the App Store.

Apple has not said exactly when Apple Camp at Home will kick off, but you can sign up to be notified when registration opens on the Today at Apple website.
