We are now accepting summer and fall applications for the 2018-2019 school year.


Summer Program

Ages 2 to 12 years
  • What makes summers at Apple so special?

    Our summer program has been loved by children ages 2-12 years for 45 years. Children who have been with us during the school year love getting to spend summer with their friends and teachers, and children who return each summer enjoy reuniting with old friends and make new ones. Apple’s summer program means summer fun, learning and memories to last a lifetime. View video gallery.

  • The best of both worlds: Fun AND learning

    Apple’s summer program infuses jam-packed summer fun PLUS learning into everything we do. That means, your child can beat the summer learning slump and have fun doing it! Whether your child enjoys Summer Camp with daily swim or Summer Session, he or she will love exciting in-house events like carnival day, field trips to local attractions and theme weeks. We pride ourselves on making summer an unforgettable experience for every child. Plus our Summer Program is run by year-round, highly-trained teachers and support staff.


  •  STEAM curriculum

    Apple’s Summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) program exposes children to a broad spectrum of scientific concepts and mathematics while using technology, engineering and the arts. Using hands on, real world materials, children work together as a team to seek solutions to real social, economic and environmental problems. From using discarded household items to creating a musical instrument to designing a working crazy straw, children ASK, IMAGINE, PLAN, CREATE and IMPROVE.


    • Ages 2-12 years
    • 7:00 am – 6:30 pm 
    • Half day and extended day available
    • Locations: Edgewater, Kinnelon, Mahwah, Morris Plains, Oakland, Towaco, Randolph and Wayne
    • Mahwah and Wayne also offer infant and toddler programs; Morris Plains also offers toddler


    Many of our camps offer daily swimming lessons in our on-site pools designed for young swimmers. Red Cross certified staff is well-versed in six different levels of curriculum based on your child’s own skill level and pace. Campers rotate to a range of fun-filled activities throughout the day like arts and crafts, dance, sports and much more so every day is a new adventure. Many of our camp counselors used to be Apple campers themselves.*

    • Ages 3-9 years
    • 7:00 am – 6:30 pm (7:00 pm in Hoboken)
    • Half day and extended day available

    Our schools that do not have on-site swimming offer an exceptional opportunity for children to beat the summer learning slump with engaging research-proven Montessori curriculum and FastTracKids e-learning. Children also get to enjoy the same curriculum as our camp program for music and dance, art, cooking, science and nature, and more. Plus, who doesn’t love outdoor play and water play on summer days at Apple?*
