Description: Music, Dance, Theater, Art. A summer of possibilities. A place for everyone, the painter, the poet, the dancer the dreamer. That's what Appel Farm is all about. Appel Farm is a residential summer arts camp for young people ages eight and a half to seventeen. Now in its fifth decade, the camp is located on 176 beautiful acres in rural southern New Jersey. At Appel Farm, campers have an opportunity to pursue their interests in the arts and develop their skills in theatre, music, fine art, dance, photography, video production, creative writing, tennis, and swimming. Campers may attend the summer camp program for four or eight weeks.
Campers have the chance to work with over 85 professional artists, arts educators, and staff who come from across the United States and from more than 15 countries around the world.
Enrollment is limited to 210 children for any session of camp. This unusual 3:1 camper to staff ratio ensures that each child receives individualized instruction and the care and support essential for an enjoyable and enriching camping experience.
Appel Farm is a well supervised camp, where a mature staff create a safe and comfortable environment for campers of all ages. We believe that all children are talented and at Appel Farm we nurture, cultivate and encourage the creative abilities in each child. There is no audition process, and campers are welcomed and accepted regardless of their skill level -- from beginner through the most advanced. We limit competition here and stress the process of creative expression. This approach encourages campers to try new things, to take risks, to broaden their artistic horizons and, in many cases, discover hidden abilities and talents.
