Appel Farm Arts Camp

Appel Farm Arts Camp is a gender-affirming overnight summer arts camp for kids ages 7 – 17. They offer connection and learning through an arts-based curriculum, in a safe environment of community, personal growth, and fun! For more than 60 years, summers at Appel Farm have sparked the imaginations of thousands of young people as they interacted with artists from around the world in beautiful rural southern New Jersey.

We do camp differently.

  • Radically supportive, gender-affirming, conscious community
  • Non-competitive arts exploration and personal growth
  • Small class sizes and differentiated instruction
  • Approach based on Restorative Practices and Collaborative Problem Solving
  • Mental Health First Aid staff training
  • Experienced, specialized instructors
  • Modern, air-conditioned ensuite bunks

Camp Tours are available on 1/28, 2/25, 3/25, 4/22 and 5/27.

    Appel Farm has this unique space of no judgement, joyful creation and true empowerment that I have not found in many other places. I am very grateful my daughter gets to be part of this every summer. She keeps the sense of those weeks with her the rest of her year and it gives her freedom to…be.

    I love listening to kids for the greatness inside of them and I love that Appel farm invites an entire community to do that. Literally changing the world summer by summer…
