Dear Parents,


Camp Apollo is proud to announce our 50th Anniversary 2018 rates. We have several new programs to offer as we celebrate this important milestone in Camp Apollo’s history. Our camp season begins Monday, July 2, 2018 and ends Friday, August 10, 2018. There will be no camp on Wednesday, July 4th.

We are happy to announce a new program for our campers in grades 5, 6 and 7 who may prefer a more traditional camping experience with some additional day trips and two 2 -day overnights. This new Tween Program ** will include 18 days at camp with Tweens participating in swimming, sports activities, GaGa, music and art. There will be 7 day trips and two 2 -day overnights to Hershey/Lancaster and Broadway/Great Adventure.

New for this year for our Teen Travel Program will be a new 5 -day overnight to Washington DC/Williamsburg, Virginia.

Also new for 2018 is a Grade 3 and 4 No Trip Program for those campers that want to remain in camp everyday and enjoy traditional camping activities including 2 daily swim periods (instructional and free), sports activities, GaGa, option periods, music, art, dance, color war and special theme day events. Additionally, our Mini Day 3 day Program may now select any 3 days of the week to attend. We hope these new programs provide more choices and flexibility to make our 50th Anniversary Year the biggest and best camp season yet!

CAMP APOLLO

CAMP APOLLO was founded in 1969 by a group of parents who felt that there was a need for a private non-profit day camp for the children of the school district.

CAMP APOLLO operates as a private non-profit community service program and uses the schools in the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District. The camp's Board of Directors are members of the community and serve voluntarily. They select the Camp Director who is responsible for the day to day operation of the camp.
