Ben Appelbaum Financial Assistance Camperships
Ben Applebaum was an owner/director of several tri-state camps and served as an extraordinary advocate for youth development. Scholarship amounts are based upon income verification, as well as the child’s age and length of time attending camp.
Rolling River provides several camperships where children are nominated by outside institutions to receive a complimentary Half Season tuition.
- The JAJ Campership, in memory of Jonah Richman, Jordan Satin and Adam Cohen, is awarded to two children ages 5-7 in the Hewlett Woodmere School District.
- The Campmates Program works in conjunction with New Horizon Counseling Center to select children based on financial and/or emotional need.
These scholarships are in memory of influential members of the Rolling River community and recipients are awarded complimentary Half Season tuition.
- The Isabelle “Nanny” Goodman Scholarship is in memory of Director Mark Goodman’s mother, who strongly believed in the philosophy of camp and as a single working parent in the 1960’s, sent her children to camp via scholarship. This is awarded to 1 boy and 1 girl who excel in sports and are entering kindergarten to 2nd grade.
- The Marjorie Sherer Scholarship is in memory of Rolling River’s original Associate Director and Nursery School Director and is awarded to 1 boy and 1 girl ages nursery through kindergarten who are ready to explore the benefits of camp.
