APPLE does not list our itinerary online. This is for protection and security reasons.

Important Information:

We ask folks to please review the Membership area, for a better understanding of the focus of APPLE.

The terms "Children" and "Teens" are used interchangeably.

While it may appear that APPLE is growing in leaps and bounds, it is actually growing to a cozy group. That is because A.P.P.L.E.'s focus is on our children, and not on creating a large group with small coffee clutches. On these trips, families will be interacting with their children, children will be interacting with other children, adults with children, and we'll once in a while we'll allow an adult to talk to another adult :-)

So, if you share the APPLE focus, we look forward to getting to know you!

ALL of A.P.P.L.E.'s functions are as a group, without subgroup division. Parents and children/teens do not separate into sub-groups; and we do engage in coffee clutches amongst members.

Upstate NY families, and NJ families

APPLE Family & Homeschool Group is formulating connections with like-minded families throughout these areas. Contact us if you need support in the Upstate Region, or need assistance formulating a contact group in your area.

APPLE is seeking to increase these contacts, so our children can network and meet one another during trips to various places.

For example, NJ & Southern Upstate families may wish to travel into NYC, and meet up with other families from the NYC/LI group; or members from these areas may be able join us in our trips. Likewise, NYC/LI group members will be forming trips to other areas, and meet with families from these areas.

Lastly, we will be forming trips in which like-minded families from throughout NY and NJ (and perhaps PA), may wish to join us!
