The Appel Core is the official newsletter of Appel Farm Arts Camp! Our Appel Core is sent out to our current and returning campers, and posted to our website for campers, staff, and alumni. Look for the newest Appel Core in October, January, April, and June! During the summer, our Appel Farm creative writers will take over the Appel Core.
We hope all of you and your loved ones are safe, healthy, and feeling supported in these difficult and unprecedented times.
We’re all living with such unknowns right now, and sadly the fate of camp is one of those. We are staying connected to the local, state, and federal officials who are currently overseeing the “shut-down” orders in place, but they have not yet determined whether or not camp is allowed to open this summer. If we are allowed to open, we will follow all available guidelines for cleanliness and safety. We will let you know once we have heard definitely if we are able to have camp this summer.
No matter what happens this summer, Appel Farm Arts Camp will be here now and in the future. We will stay connected and creative and, with your help, we can continue to create summers that will shape the hearts, minds, and imaginations of our children for a lifetime!
But first, this issue is packed with the camp stories we all love, memories from last summer, and the Camp 2020 Theme. Learn from Sarv the origin of our Fireside Chats, take some advice from Jack Kavanaugh to heart, and look forward — with us — to the next time we can all gather at Appel Farm.
Appel Farm for Life!
