IT’S NOT DAY CAMP.
IT’S J CAMP.

(and that makes all the difference in the world)

We’re the secret sauce of summer for over 5,000 children throughout the Chicago area.

Every June, Apachi, Apachi Village and #BIGIDEA Camps
(each with their own special blend of camp)
become the place where kids learn to

Spread their wings
Test the waters
Push their envelope
Find their bliss.

Jump into the Apachi Experience

 Apachi J 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 J 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 J 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 J 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).
