Not Just Another Summer Camp!

Apple Ridge Farm... "Helping Kids Grow"

Why should you give to Apple Ridge?

In the summer, our facility in  Copper Hill comes
ALIVE as hundreds of children from the Roanoke Valley attend Academic
Summer Camp. This camp is offered to children ages 6 to 16 years old – free of charge.  2016 was the 28th year for the camp and about 350 campers benefitted from attending our camp.

Campers participate in our dynamic curriculum which includes reinforcement in reading, language arts and creative writing; improvement of proficiency in written and oral communication skills; STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & math) instruction;


computer programming; instruction in physical education; healthy lifestyle choices and character building; and an introduction to college preparation and career focus for middle school and high school students.  Campers also participate in organic gardening, aquatic and forest studies, and our new EBase USA  - Blue Ridge lessons in sustainability program. A special "Family Day" is held prior to the end of camp which encourages family participation and involvement.


100% of our success depends on our donors! Our facilities and staff are committed to improving the quality of our children's future. From our tennis lessons to our math classes, language arts, and science enrichment lessons, our kids benefit from any amount of time at our camps.
