Healthcare Staff

Our Healthcare Staff includes two Camp Nurses licensed by the New Jersey State Board of Nursing who live on camp, a team of Infirmary Assistants, and a Camp Physician who visits several times a week to treat campers, and is on call and available for telephone consultation at all times during camp.


The Infirmary

The Infirmary, a comfortable, air-conditioned facility, is located in the center of camp and staffed 24 hours a day.



Medication is not a problem at Appel Farm. All medicine and healthcare is dispensed from the Infirmary by a Camp Nurse. Campers visit the Infirmary after meals or before bedtime to take their medications.


Healthcare Screenings

Before moving in on Check-In Day, you and your camper will meet with a Camp Nurse for a healthcare screening to review and update the Camper Health Form, identify signs of injury, illness, or communicable diseases such as the flu or head lice, and go over any current medical treatment or medications to be administered during camp.
