Summer Arts Camp

Appel Farm is the home of an internationally-recognized residential summer arts and music camp. Founded in 1960 by Albert and Clare Appel, it is a place where young artists ages 7-17 develop confidence and skills, make new friends, and interact creatively with artist-educators from around the world. Appel Farm Arts Camp offers programs in music, theater, dance, visual arts, photography, video, recording arts, creative writing, sports and swim, along with traditional camp activities like campfires, dances, carnivals, and off-camp trips.
