Appel Core

The Appel Core is the official newsletter of Appel Farm Arts Camp! Our Appel Core is sent out to our current and returning campers, and posted to our website for campers, staff, and alumni. Look for the newest Appel Core in October, December, February, April, and June! During the summer, our Appel Farm creative writers will take over the Appel Core.

It’s Pal-entine’s Day!

Happy “Pal”entine’s Day to all our camp friends! We all know camp friends are the best friends right!? Ever stop to think about why?

I think one of the reasons we make such great friends at Appel Farm is that you don’t have to “fit in” here, you simply get to belong. Everyone is accepted just as they are! Our camp friends see us at our worst (like when we have morning breath or feel homesick), and at our best (performing in a Friday Night Concert or helping in the dining hall). Friendships forged at camp are unique because not only do they represent what is good in others, but also what is good in ourselves. They remind us that we can be ourselves, no matter how different we may feel sometimes, and still be LOVED!

You are so very very LOVED by us! I am so grateful you are part of our Appel Farm family. As the world around us focuses on romantic love this Valentine’s Day, let’s not forget the love we share between friends. So, be a true pal this February 14th and celebrate “Pal”entine’s Day by sending some love and positivity to anyone you consider a friend, but especially your camp ones!
