Apple has opened registration for its annual children’s summer program ‘Apple Camp’ on apple.com. The kids camp is part ‘Today at Apple’ session held at its retail stores, where children indulge in various creative activities for tech education. Having said that, this year’s sessions are limited because of COVID-19 precautionary measures.
In 2020, Apple Camp was held virtually as an in-home experience. The company’s Education team created ’30 creative activities’ for kids to stay engaged and stimulate their young minds at home during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Apple provided PDFs of all the activities on the web which could be downloaded and printed for completion. Since large crowds are still discouraged, the Cupertino tech giant directs parents to explore the former Kids guide in areas where sessions are not available.
