Arts at Appel Farm

Arts at Appel Farm

Transformative Arts and Learning at Appel Farm

At its core, the mission of Appel Farm is to provide transformative arts and learning experiences, and there is no better place for those experiences than at our beautiful campus in Elmer, NJ.

Change the energy of Monday afternoons!

Arts Lab immerses students, grades K – 6, in after school arts enrichment for 10 weekly classes in the Spring and Fall. Arts Lab helps kids develop their artistic skills and to express themselves, it also offers a creative, enriching and affordable alternative to traditional school after care. Choose the Visual Arts Track or the Arts + Technology Track, and start looking forward to Monday afternoons!

The joy of camp for the whole family!

Family Arts Camp offers the joy of camp for the whole family! For more than 50 years, Appel Farm Arts Camp has transformed the lives of thousands of young people, helping children develop artistic talents, gain self-confidence, and make friendships that last a lifetime. Now we are offering our families a chance to experience the magic of Appel Farm summer…together. 

Girls Out Loud!

Our Mother Daughter Art Retreat is designed for Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters and Daughters of all ages! Laugh, listen, and create as you participate in movement, writing and visual arts workshops that explore the concept of dreams. Moms: hear about your daughter’s hopes and dreams for the future. Daughters: discover that mom is not only “mom” but a woman just like you, with her own dreams and aspirations. Come join us at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center for a weekend packed with intentional opportunities for connection.

Journey Jamboree and Crafty Campout welcomes Girl Scout Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes for  fun-filled weekends of creative activities that encourage critical thinking and skill building. Also open to all girls 2-8 grade and their chaperones, the girls spend the weekend earning Journeys and Badges designed specifically for Girl Scouts, and great for all the girls! We look forward to working with you to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place!

Shining a light on the creative students in South Jersey! 

We are thrilled to partner with schools to shine a light on their students as the Region 2 partner for New Jersey Poetry Out Loud, the affiliate for South Jersey South Art Region of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, and the host of the Salem & Gloucester County Teen Arts Festival. Each of these programs culminate in loads of arts and learning, adjudication, performances, award ceremonies, and a celebration of the creative students in South Jersey, all here at our campus!
