CAMP APOLLO was founded in 1969 by a group of parents who felt that there was a need for a private non-profit day camp for the children of the school district.
CAMP APOLLO operates as a private non-profit community service program and uses the schools in the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District. The camp's Board of Directors are members of the community and serve voluntarily. They select the Camp Director who is responsible for the day to day operation of the camp.
