Did you know that Apple stores across the nation offer summer camp workshops for kids 8-12? Registration opened yesterday for these free sessions where campers work to create a film – first they create a story board, then shoot their own footage and create an original song in GarageBand on an iPad, and use iMovie to put it all together. Camp ends with a “Film Festival” where campers debut their masterpieces.

During the school year, the Apple stores offer Field Trips for K-12 students and teachers who can visit their local Apple Store to use Macs and iPads to work on class related projects. My second-grader’s class went to the store at The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks for a field trip this spring. The kids teamed up to make a film, and every student came home with a (too-big but super cool) T-shirt and a USB drive with his or her movie on it. Here is the movie my son made with his friend:

And here is an example of a Field Trip that took place this spring in Santa Monica, recorded by KTLA Los Angeles tech reporter Rich DeMuro:

The free workshops take place in 1.5-hour sessions over three days. The Oaks store still has room in their 12 scheduled sessions of Apple Camp, so sign up soon! Visit the main page to learn more.
