Consumers that are subscribed to the Microsoft Retail Store mailing list likely received an interesting email today. Microsoft is gearing up for the Summer by offering free 2 hour classes during the day for children between the ages of 8 and 13. The classes are held Monday – Thursday at participating Microsoft Store locations nationwide.
It would appear as if the camps are broken up into week long sessions. You might want to stop by one of the Microsoft Store locations to verify the length of the camp or get more details. It may also be possible to sign up for more than 1 camp as well so your child could attend a 4 hour daily game coding and game design workshop.
It should be noted though that parents must stay inside of the Microsoft Store throughout the class. Thankfully, Microsoft Stores are filled with lots of cool technology to keep parents entertained for a bit. Be sure to print and sign the consent for located at the bottom of the summer camp page if you’re considering taking your child to one of these events.
Microsoft is offering 4 different classes throughout June, July, and August. Game coding, game design, movie production, and photography classes will teach children fun tech related skills that are sure to make parents feel old and technology-illiterate. According to Microsoft, the classes are filling up fast.
