Appel Farm can help you prepare for the world…Become a Camp Intern today!

What is the Camp Internship?

The Appel Farm Arts Camp Internship program is a training opportunity for young artists, who are too old to attend camp, but too young to be a part of our full Staff, to gain valuable leadership, counseling, and teaching skills. Interns gain an understanding of the many facets of working as a camp professional and teaching artist. This is a four-week, unpaid, residential internship.

Eligibility & Application

Must be 18-19 years old during the summer to apply. Priority is given to former Appel Farm campers and CITs. Internship applications are due no later than Friday, March 15, 2020. After participating in a phone interview, applicants will be notified by early April if they are chosen for the program, and required to attend an Intern Retreat at Appel Farm for training May 16-17, 2020 (optional if you were a CIT at Appel Farm).

Dates, Travel, Room & Board

There are six (6) internships available for Sessions 1-2 and six (6) available for Sessions 3-4. Applicants can indicate a preference, but selections will be determined as space is available.

Sessions 1 & 2: Sunday, June 21 – Sunday, July 19, 2020

Sessions 3 & 4: Sunday, July 19 – Sunday, August 16, 2020

All Interns are required to live at Appel Farm for the duration of the four-week internship. Room and board are offered at a significantly discounted rate of $650 for non-Appel Farm alumni, $575 for former campers, and $500 for former CITs. A deposit of $100 is due June 1st with the balance due by the first day of the internship.

Limited funds are available for applicants needing financial assistance to cover room and board costs. If assistance is needed, please notify us during the interview process.

Transportation to and from the Philadelphia airport, bus station, or 30th St. train station will be provided at no cost.  Interns can also drive to camp and have a car while living at camp.


This is an unpaid internship. Camp Interns will not be compensated financially for their work but will gain valuable experience working with children, teaching in the arts, and learning valuable leadership skills. Interns will have three days off within the four-week internship, along with various time off each day/evening.
