In the summer, the Apple Store even provides FREE Apple Camp for kids, which are multi-day class events that culminate in a final project.

In-Store Apple Classes for Kids
Apple Store classes for kids change periodically, but they all have a few things in common. First, you can bring your own Apple device or one that will be provided for kids to use for free. This means these classes are a good way to introduce kids to technology that they may not be able to use regularly.
Classes are free and meet just once. (Except the Apple Camps, more on those later).
Instructors will walk kids through how to use the device and required apps to complete the class objective.
Currently, the Apple Store is offering the following classes for kids:

2022 Apple Camp: Free Summer Camp for Kids
Is Apple Camp happening in 2022? Yes! Registration will be coming soon!
What is Apple Camp?
Much like the Apple Store kids classes and labs described above, Apple Camp puts technology into the hands of kids and shows them how to use it while doing creative projects. Apple Camp, however, is a multi-day event that brings kids into the store multiple times over the course of the camp week. Each day kids will learn more and work on their final projects. At the end of camp, kids get to share their projects and present them to other kids in the class as well as parents.
What Does Apple Camp Include
- Free instruction
- Free Use of iPads during camp
- Free Apple Camp T-shirt

Things to Know about Apple Camps and Classes for Kids
These are not drop-off events. Parents are expected to stay in the store, although they do not have to assist their child. Parents with younger siblings in tow may appreciate a small section of the store with iPads full of apps for young children during this time. Parents will also have the opportunity to learn about new Apple technology, keeping kids safe on Apple devices, and other relevant topics.
Mom tip: Swing by the coffee shop on the way in and then just enjoy watching your kids learn something new.
