Two-Week Camper Families, You’re Invited to our Mini-Session Showcase

When: Saturday, July 6th

All shows are at Appel Farm Arts Camp: 457 Shirley Road, Elmer, NJ 08318

3:45        Horseback Riding Show @ Beauty & the Beast

4:15        Theater Show: Small Actors @ Pavilion

5:00        Music Concert @ Theater

6:45        DINNER @ Dining Hall

7:15        Art & Photo Show @ Art Gallery

                Dancers go to the Theater

8:00        Video Show @ Theater

               Sports & Swim Video Feature

               Performance Poetry & Improv Mania

              Dance Show: Blackout

Our theater seats about 325 people and we already have 325 people here with our campers and staff. SO, we are anticipating a very full theater with all of our campers, counselors and guests, so we ask that you limit the number of guests you are bringing to 2 people per camper, if possible.
Please plan to arrive only ten minutes early because your children will need every last minute for technical rehearsals.

Please only attend the part of the showcase in which your child is performing. If your child is performing in both parts, then you are invited to stay for the entire evening and to join us for dinner at 6:35 pm. We will be offering a stuffed shells dinner, with outdoor seating. Our kitchen will need to prepare though, so if you would like to stay for dinner, we need you to respond  no later than Thursday.  We understand that many of you will want to visit with your camper before or after their show, but please keep in mind, you will be picking them up the next morning to go home, and will have lots of time then to visit. Dinner and our shows are reserved parents attending both shows and those kids performing.

Campers are not allowed to leave camp for dinner or after the performances.  Every minute of camp time is precious and we want your child to have all of it they can!

Please R.S.V.P. if you are planning to attend the show by e-mailing us at

*Your camper’s name

*How many people are in your party (Parents/Guardians, and if applicable, the camper’s siblings.)

*If you are attending Part I, Part II, or need to attend both parts of the show.  

*If your camper is performing in both parts, then let us know if you’ll be joining us for DINNER.
