This year, Apple Camp – the annual get-together that offers digital activities for kids – will take place entirely online.
Apple Camp at Home will take place later this summer, with a combination of self-guided activities to try at home and one-on-one time with Apple Creatives through virtual Orientation or Q&A sessions.
The camp is aimed at kids aged 8-12 and will be completely free to attend. Activities encourage creativity and learning in the realms of video, art, design, and coding – a pretty broad spectrum of fun education for children to try over the summer.
The activities and challenges will be laid out in an interactive Activity Book, and kids will need a device with Apple’s Pages app installed to use it. But don’t worry, Pages is a free download if you don’t already have it.

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, Apple has already shifted its Today at Apple program online with a series of Today at Home video lessons – and WWDC is going virtual next week for the first time ever.
In addition to supporting kids with a virtual activity camp, Apple has also picked 350 student coders from around the world as winners of its Swift Student Challenge.
These students will be celebrated at WWDC, but Apple has highlighted the stories of three winners in particular on its website – a great read if you’re interested in how the next generation of developers are getting their break.
