Similar to previous years, Apple will once again be offering free summer camps for kids 8 to 12 at its retail stores. The sessions this year will focus on filmmaking with iMovie as well as interactive storytelling with iBooks Author. Like previous years the camp will go on for three days with lectures lasting 90 minutes.

According to the website the filmmaking workshop will focus on:

Campers will learn everything they need 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.

The storytelling workshop will focus on:

Campers will create their own interactive books. They’ll draw illustrations using an iPad, then add sound effects and Multi-Touch features using iBooks Author on a Mac.

It is expected that the first session will begin in mid-July and continue through early August. If you want to sign your kids up you need to be quick as some stores are already reporting having filled all slots for both workshops.
Interested parents can register for sessions on Apple’s retail websites.
