101-free

To help families find activities that are both family friendly as well as budget friendly this summer, I’m compiling a list of 101 Free Summertime Activities.  Some of the items on this list will be universal in regards to location, while others are more specific to the Cincinnati region.

You can find previous posts from this series here.

41.  Free YouthSpark Camps at Microsoft 

Microsoft is offering free YouthSpark Summer Camps this summer.  Kids ages 8 and older will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the latest technology as they learn how to code, create games, and use their imagination.

There will be four camps available, with two designed for beginners and two for intermediates who are ready to take their skills to the next level:

  • Kodu Makerspace (ages 8-11)
  • Be an Inventor with LittleBits (ages 8-11)
  • Learn to Code Flatverse (ages 12 and up)
  • Start Your Own Business (ages 13 and up)

Each camp runs for four consecutive days and lasts for two hours per day.  It’s important to note that the parent, legal guardian, or authorized adult caregiver of every camp participant ages 18 and under must remain in the Microsoft store for the duration of the event.  You can find a participating Microsoft store near you here.

42.  Free Apple Camps

Apple Retail Stores across the country are offering free Apple Camps this summer.  Kids ages 8-12 will have the opportunity to broaden their creative horizons by making movies, creating interactive books, and more all while using Apple products.

These free camps last for three days each, and there are three different camps to choose from:

  • Coding Game and Programming Robots
  • Stories in Motion with iMovie
  • Interactive Storytelling with iBooks

It’s important to note that a parent or legal guardian must stay at the Apple Store for the duration of the Apple Camp workshop.  Space is limited, and these workshops fill up very quickly, so if you have a child who is interested, I would suggest signing up as soon as possible.
