Appel Farm Arts Camp Internship

Appel Farm can help you prepare for the world…Become a Camp Intern today!

What is the Camp Internship?

The Camp Internship is an opportunity for previous Appel Farm Campers, who are too old to attend camp, but too young to be a part of our Staff, to learn what it is like to work at Appel Farm. Interns will learn valuable leadership, counseling, and teaching skills and gain an understanding of the many facets of working as a camp professional. This is a four-week, unpaid, residential internship.

Eligibility & Application

Former CITs, who will be 18-19 years old during the summer of 2017, will be invited to apply. Those interested, should complete the application below before March 16th. After participating in a phone interview, applicants will be notified by early April if they are chosen for the program, and asked to attend an Intern Retreat at Appel Farm for training April 21-23, 2017.

Dates, Travel, Room & Board

Six Internship opportunities are available for both of Appel Farm’s four week sessions. Applicants can indicate a preference, but selections will be determined as space is available. The First Session Internship is June 24 through July 22, 2017. The Second Session Internship is July 22 through August 19, 2017.

All Interns are required to live at Appel Farm for the duration of the four-week internship. Room & board is offered at a significantly discounted rate and will cost each participant $500. A deposit of $100 is due June 1st with the balance due by the first day of the internship. CITs who previously attended Appel Farm with tuition assistance or a scholarship, may be eligible for financial room and board assistance.

Transportation to and from the Philadelphia airport, bus station, or 30th St. train station will be provided at no cost.  Interns can also drive to camp and have a car while living at camp.


This is an unpaid internship. Camp Interns will not be compensated financially for their work, but will gain valuable experience working with children, teaching in the arts, and learning valuable leadership skills. Interns will have three days off within the four week internship, along with various time off each day/evening.
