Appleby Overnight (Ages 10-14)
New for 2022, Appleby has announced the launch of the Appleby Overnight program campers ages 10-14, which is available for three weeks in August. In this special program, campers select one of the incredible week-long camper options and add on the overnight portion, making it a short-term, close-to-home overnight experience. Space in this much-requested program is limited each week, so register early!
This is the perfect opportunity for your kids to increase their independence and spread their wings. First, campers choose any one-week (Monday-Friday) camp from the wide variety of program options. Next, add an overnight stay from Sunday to Thursday night. After the regular camp day concludes, the overnight campers make themselves at home on Appleby’s beautiful lakeshore campus.
