Albert & Clare Appel Scholarship Program

Making Camp Affordable for Families

Apply Now for Camp 2023!

Camp 2023 Scholarship Application.

As a non-profit camp, Appel Farm is committed to making camp accessible for all families. It is our goal to connect creative kids and young artists to our high-quality, immersive summer arts program. To help them find their art; find their people, and find themselves.

With a wide range of awards, from 25% to 100% of tuition, our dynamic scholarship program can help make camp a reality for your child. We offer both financial and merit-based awards through various funds and partnerships with a wide range of selection criteria. To make the process as simple as possible, campers do not need to apply for specific scholarship funds. Instead, families apply through our general Appel Farm Scholarship Application, and we work with our partners to make awards.

Applications are accepted between October 1st – May 31st, and awardees are notified on a rolling basis. Funding is limited and awards are made on a first-come, first-reviewed basis so it is better to apply as early as you are able to make a commitment to camp.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions at

Foundation-supported Scholarships 

As a nonprofit Appel Farm applies for a wide range of grant funds to support scholarships each year. These funds are often tied to specific geographic regions, age/genders, school types, art disciplines, and other criteria. Below is a list of the generous Foundations who have supported scholarship fund. This list is updated as we partner with new scholarship sponsors.
