Many of Apple’s retail stores in the U.S. are currently closed due to the continued spread of the Corona virus, and other countries have social distance policies that have required discontinuation of personal programs such as Today at Apple and Field Excursion.
Apple recently announced plans to end the Apple Field Trip program, which allows K-12 students and youth groups to visit Apple retail stores for hands-on group meetings led by an Apple employee. How 9to5Mac The Apple Excursion website now confirms that the Apple Excursion has been canceled.
A “new educational experience” will soon take the place of the Apple excursion, and it’s likely a digital offering that offers activities and video courses for children. Apple has already launched an Apple Camp at Home program that offers digital programs for video, art, design and coding, as well as a self-guided activity book and live sessions with Apple Creative Pros, which are hosted on Webex.
Today’s Apple day has also been replaced by a digital offering, so Field Trip may be similar to both the Apple Camp and the virtual Today at Apple sessions Apple offered.
