Apple Camp, a program that brings children and families together to work on fun projects at the Apple Store, is returning to in person this summer.
Today, Apple has announced (opens in new tab) that Apple Camp is returning to Apple Store locations around the world from June 20 through August 31. The latest lesson comes in a new two-hour format and will teach attendees how to "create their own digital comic book about protecting and celebrating the planet."
Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of Retail + People, said that the company is "thrilled" to be bringing the program back in person for its 20th anniversary.
This year, Apple Creative Pros in the Apple Store will lead "Art Lab: Comic Book Adventure." It is designed for kids ages 8 to 12 and will take place either indoors or outdoors depending on the location.
For those who can't make the in-store session, Apple has also released a downloadable guide that takes participants through twenty at-home activities. All you need is an iPad to get started.
Parents and guardians who are interested in signing up for a local session can sign up for Apple Camp on the Today at Apple (opens in new tab) website.

"families will take an iPad outside" --- ha! I used to do these kinds of events for a living. Allowing families to take iPads outside the mall to a stark urban environment (where most of the stores are). 1st complaint - terrible location for an outside shoot. 2nd - I'd never get my iPads back!
