Ben Appelbaum Day Camp Conference

Home / Events & Conferences / Annual Conferences / Ben Appelbaum Day Camp Conference

Join us as we pay tribute to camping legend Ben Appelbaum’s enthusiasm and service to our industry through an event dedicated to day camp programs. Hosted by different camps each year, attendees take part in a guided tour of the host camp’s facility, giving staff an opportunity to bring new insight and ideas back to their own program.

Our 2019 host camps are Liberty Lake Day Camp and Frogbridge Day Camp.

*NEW FOR 2019: This year, we are excited to announce that we will be offering tour options geared to specific staff or topics including inclusion programming, non-camp events/rental groups, office/admin staff, facilities management and food service, and teen leadership, along with our general camp tours. 

Thursday, October 3rd 9:00am - 3:00pm

Registration will begin at 8:45am - make sure to arrive on time to get your hands on a NJ breakfast staple - pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwiches!

Cost: $85/Member; $110/Non-Member

Registration fee includes lunch.
