“I just wanted to say thank you to all the teachers in my son’s room for making his first few weeks in Apple such a success. We have had almost no tears from him and the pictures I get of him always show him learning something new. I can’t say how wonderful it is to know your child is happy and engaged while you can’t be with them. My daughter is also raving about all her swimming and all the crafts she brings home are just great. Anyway, I didn’t want my gratitude to go unnoticed. So thank you all.” ~ Charlene M.
Activities & adventures
Unforgettable summer fun
Each day is a new adventure as our campers become immersed in fun-filled athletics; arts and crafts; dance, drama, and music; cooking; and science and nature explorations. Each week features a theme like the Hawaiian Hullabaloo to set the tone. Campers enjoy bike rodeo, visits form the ice cream man, and so much more.
Our special in-house events and field trips are a favorite with our campers and counselors alike! We all look forward to visits from the reptile man and off-site excursions like to the chocolate factory.
Most schools offer unique swimming pools which have been designed to help children develop their individual skills and abilities while promoting safety and fun. Daily swim lessons are designed to enhance individual skill levels. Our highly-trained staff is adept at teaching proper technique, as well as how to be safe in the water. Our curriculum covers six levels of swimming from Level One, Acclimation to the Water to Level Six, Advanced Aquatic Skills and Stroke Proficiency.

Apple’s year-round, experienced teachers oversee our classes and foster each child’s sense of security and routine as he or she dives into new and exciting camp activities. Our youngest campers continue to build new friendships, while many of our elementary aged campers return to Apple each summer to reunite with old friends and make new ones. Many of our camp counselors used to be Apple campers themselves. Now that is what we call a “Lifer.” Apple’s camp experiences are truly what childhood memories can be made of! Our team is trained in AED, first aid and CPR.
