Appel Farm invites moms to join their Daisy daughters at our spring Daisy Day Camp! Moms will participate side-by-side with their daughters as they begin this first Girl Scout Journey. What a wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s Day!

Highlights of the day include making birdbaths, meeting a zookeeper and some animals from the Cape May Zoo, a Nature Scavenger Hunt, theatre games including improv and role play, and finally a Badge Earning Candle Award Ceremony with an ice cream sundae party.
