We are thrilled to offer our alumni and friends this opportunity to come together to honor Albert and Clare’s vision and dreams and their contributions to our beloved Appel Farm! We want to reconnect with as many of our alumni and friends as possible, from way back in 1960 through the decades to today! Please join us for this special celebration, and participate in the creation of the Albert and Clare Appel Camp Scholarship Fund to memorialize Al and Clare’s legacy.

We will eat and drink and be grateful! We will enjoy fantastic music and entertainment and reconnect with each other and our camp days! We will create a timeline with photos and memorabilia from each generation of alumni! We will create a library of videos about our experience at Appel Farm and what it meant to us. More details about the timeline and video projects will be available soon!
