Introduces kids to iMovie, GarageBand
Apple has started announcing the 2012 slate of its annual summer camps for kids. The events in fact take place at Apple Stores, and include two 90-minute workshops in which children aged 8 to 12 learn how to make movies using iMovie on a Mac, paired with a song produced on GarageBand for the iPad. An optional Saturday morning event lets friends and family see the finished videos.
The first set of camps begin on July 23rd. Participating stores will run as many as 12 sessions by the end of the current program, in late August. Only US and Canadian stores have opened signups so far, but Europe, China, and Japan are expected to follow in short order, and Australia will start camps in September.
