Bunk Counselors and Instructors
Our bunk counselors and instructors make up the majority of our summer staff! All of our bunk counselors teach in one of our department areas during class periods, and live with a co-counselor and bunk of campers on camp.
Housekeeping and Kitchen Staff
Our Housekeeping and Kitchen staff are the core that holds our camp team together! The team in our kitchen is responsible for the delicious meals we serve in the dining hall and for the snacks and desserts we provide for campers and staff during the day. All of our staff working in the kitchen must be at least 18 years old at the start of the camp season, and have a car to get to and from Appel Farm each day.
Our Housekeeping staff must also be 18 by the start of the camp season, and they reside on camp and take part in the full-time camp experience as a part of our larger camp community. Housekeeping staff are responsible for the general upkeep of our public spaces, and support our bunk staff through additional cleaning support in our cabins. Housekeeping staff will have support tasks that vary day by day, so flexibility and a positive attitude are a must!
