Missing Camp? We sure miss you! Join us on Sunday, November 4th at Camp for an amazing reunion! The reunion is open to campers and staff from any summer, along with friends and family.
Ever since we started taking hundreds of camp photos every day, and even before, back in the disposable camera days, and even before… Shiny happy campers holding hands have posed for the perfect camp photo
Give a child in your life the opportunity to make memories and friendships that last a lifetime; to explore their artistic passions and talents; to develop independence and learn to be a productive citizen; to experience a summer free from Snapchats, Instagram, and Facebook; to reconnect with nature; to be a kid again.
We miss our campers this time of year, you know, non-camp time? We should at least connect online… Like us on Facebook to keep in touch with Appel Farmers from 1960 to today! Follow us on Twitter, and hear all about Appel Farm Arts Camp…140 characters at a time!
Evening Activities are a time when the entire camp comes together just to have fun! With activities that change every night, campers and staff can enjoy Scavenger Hunts, Bunk Activities, Campfires, Dances, Carnivals, Workshops, and Performances.
Welcome to the Appel Farm School Year Blog! Each week campers, staff, and parents will be treated to something new!

We welcome guest bloggers from any member of our camp community, even parents, so get in touch if […]
Calling all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends! Help a child you love attend camp this summer. Camp gift certificates make wonderful gifts for the creative kid in your life. These certificates can be purchased in any amount, and applied directly to a camper’s account.
Time flies during camp (unless we’re all-in) and somehow we blink and we are clearing our cubbies, hugging our friends, and saying goodbye. That’s the moment we start dreaming of another summer at Appel Farm, counting down the days… But to what, exactly, are we counting down?
So, our TBT blogs are usually filled with photos that make all of us remember our days at camp. Photos of rock shows, painting classes, campers throwing pots and taking photos, the carnival, campfires, bunks taking a tour on the first day of camp…
Our community celebrates each and every camper for who they are, and who they want to be. We find what’s unique about each camper, and help them identify and develop their strengths, skills, and interests.
There’s a chance that we will hear it again this summer, but for sure we will hear something amazing because Rock Shows at Appel Farm are epic. We shared. We solo. We invite our friends to come close to the stage and rock out. We behave like rock stars but stop short of the antics […]
This summer our goal was to “Ignite the Spark” of creativity, friendship, learning, and more for our campers, and as a result, they were wildly creative, explored new passions, dared to take risks, and forged new friendships. Now it’s time for you to share in this magic with Camp 2017 video footage. From Friday Night […]
We’re so excited about Family Camp Weekend and our Camp Reunion coming up November 3rd-5th! One of the best parts about Family Camp is that you get to take classes with some of wonderful Camp Counselors! Check out some of the people that you’ll get to hang out with all weekend!
Happy Train Your Brain Day, Appel Farm friends! In honor of today, we thought we would share a few innovative ways to engage your noggin’ with some fun, explorative STEAM activities. During camp this summer, we held some exciting STEAM workshops in the art barn, giving campers a hands-on way to hypothesize, think critically and […]
This Wonder Wednesday, we share the findings of Dr. Michael Ungar, a family therapist, author, and researcher at Dalhousie University. After speaking to 300 summer camp directors, Dr. Ungar confirmed what we already know:“Summer camps, we discovered, are perfect places to help children optimize their psychosocial development.”
Hi friends! It’s me, Saucy Sam! I loved spending the summer with all of you but I’ve been so lonely at camp ever since everyone left in August. I miss each and every one of you so I want to invite everyone, past and present campers and staff, to come visit me at camp on…
