 Apachi Day Camps are places where campers can discover new experiences in a safe environment…

giving them the freedom to explore who they really are, try new activities and create meaningful friendships.

  • Friendships

    Apachi Day Camps offer programming for children from preschool to high school. A summer full of countless activities, field trips and traditions make for strong friendships that last a lifetime.

  • Shabbat

    Shabbat Fridays bring campers a little closer together as they celebrate the spirit of our Jewish community and traditions as they celebrate Apachi Day Camp style.

  • Our Staff

    Many of our staff were campers themselves. Our staff challenge and encourage each other to make each day better than the last for our campers.

  • Activities

    We can go old school with songs, swimming and arts and crafts. We can go new school with yoga, tech innovation, and climbing walls.

  • Emphasis on Jewish Values

    Respecting differences, honoring kindness and learning to be a good friend define the essence of our inclusive Apachi Day Camp communities.

  • Theme Days

    Campers and counselors go all out for theme days including Silly Sock Day, Superhero Day, Wacky Wednesday and more!

  • Specialty Camps

    Campers can spend the summer doing what they love and exploring new interests at EcoApachi, Apachi Ivrit and Apachi Sports.

  • Maccabi Games

    Maccabi Games at Apachi is the favorite week of the summer for many of our campers. Days are filled with uniquely Jewish team-based events and colorful camp-wide celebrations of ruach (spirit).
