Apple’s “Apple Camp” program for students, held in Apple Retail stores during the summer months, will become a year-round program beginning in September, says a report from 9to5Mac.
… according to a message from Apple Retail head Angela Ahrendts to employees this week. Ahrendts also noted that field trips and programs for teachers will also become year-round.
Ahrendts’ message to employees, per Apple Retail employees:
“We’re also, for September, expanding our summer camps and our field trips for students, for teachers, to make those a year-round program. I don’t have to tell you the impact they make on so many lives and the energy they bring to the store, so why not continue that program throughout the year?”
9to5Mac notes the Apple retail website for students still lists Apple Camp as returning in summer 2016. However, that will likely be updated sometime in the coming weeks. The changes to the Apple Camps program comes in the wake of Apple’s terminating the One to One training program, in favor of offering more free group workshops to its customers.
