#TBT to Mysterious Photos in the Appel Farm Archives

#TBT to Mysterious Photos in the Appel Farm Archives

Searching through the archives, some camp photos are instantly recognizable. It doesn’t matter if it was the 80s, 90s, or 00s. You are right there with camp friends, arms around each other, having fun… But then you see a photo that must have some explanation, but what is it? And who can explain what in the world was happening at Appel Farm that moment in time? Who is that bunny, and is he good or evil? Why are those campers on those poles? Stranded up there to get them to read? And how did that fancy deer end up at Appel Farm, and how does that boy really feel about it? Maybe we should find out. Maybe we should get creative with our own explanations. Maybe we should just chalk it up to… “Well, that’s just Appel Farm.”
