Apple is once again offering free Apple Camp workshops at their retail stores where kids ages 8 to 12 can learn to make movies or create interactive books complete with their own illustrations and sound effects. Each workshop lasts 90 minutes and ends with the Apple Camp Showcase so campers can share their finished projects.
In the iMovie workshops, campers will learn to create their own movies. They’ll storyboard ideas, shoot video, create an original soundtrack in GarageBand on an iPad, and then edit it all together in iMovie on a Mac. Meanwhile, the iBooks classes will teach kids how to draw illustrations using an iPad and how to add sound effects as well as Multi-Touch features using iBooks Author for Mac.
The first workshop sessions will begin in mid-July and will last through early August. Unfortunately, the stores near us have already filled their slots for both workshops. But other states still have many spots remaining. You can check to see if these events are still available in your local Apple store here.
