Jamboree Leadership Camps
Join us at Appel Farm for an unforgettable weekend! Appel Farm has carefully constructed a curriculum where scouts explore issues related to science and the environment, leadership skills, community involvement and personal growth using the Visual and Performing Arts as the vehicle for exploration. Scouts can spend a fun-filled weekend engaged in creative activities that encourage critical thinking, bonding with their fellow scouts, making new friends and earning their Achievement awards. Our program empowers girls to realize how they, as individuals, can make a difference in the world.
Crafty Campout Overnights
Appel Farm is an expert at teaching the Visual Arts! During our Crafty Campout overnight, Brownies and Juniors participate in Ceramics, Painting, Drawing and Jewelry workshops in our state-of-the-art Fine Art Studios. Scouts have fun expressing themselves, learning a new art form, honing skills AND building self-confidence under the direction of our experienced professional Teaching Artist staff.
Daisies and Moms Celebrate Mother’s Day Together! Structured around Three Cheers for Animals, girls learn how to care for animals while participating in visual and performing arts activities designed to release their inner animal. Daughters and Moms make ceramic bird baths, mixed media nests, play Theatre Games and visit with a zookeeper who introduces them to some of the residents of the Cohansick Zoo, while discussing how these animal moms care for their animal babies in the wild.
Workshops for Girl Scouts
Appel Farm also offers workshops for Scouts to earn their Visual and Performing Arts Petals and Badges. Bring your troop to Appel Farm for an afternoon or evening workshop in Dance, Theatre, Ceramics, Painting, Drawing, Jewelry, and more!
Appel Farm is pleased to offer a range of programming designed specifically to help Girl Scouts meet the requirements of earning their Visual and Performing Arts Petals, Badges and Journey Awards. Our curriculum is designed to complement the written materials published by the Girl Scouts of America and is inspired by the ideas they present. We do not award petals, badges or journey awards; it is the responsibility of each individual Troop Leader to determine when the award criteria has been met. Appel Farm is not affiliated with the Girl Scouts of America.

“A weekend like this gathers together many of the values and critical thinking points I strive to shine a light on for my daughters. You give them what I can’t by making it happen as part of a sisterhood that crosses cultures and generations.” Journey Jamboree Spring 2016
