We make every effort to ensure our campers’ health and safety.

Healthcare Staff

Our Healthcare Staff includes two Nurses who live on camp, at least one of whom is a registered nurse licensed by the New Jersey State Board of Nursing. We also engage a Camp Physician who visits three times a week to treat campers and is on call and available for telephone consultation at all times during camp. At least one nurse is on-site at all times, and they stay on call 24 hours a day.

The Health Center

The Health Center 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 are dispensed from the Health Center by a Camp Nurse. Campers visit the Health Center after meals or before bedtime to take their medications.
