You can register your camper here using the CampInTouch registration system. Just choose your camp to get started.

Transportation

We want to make getting your child to and from camp as easy as possible. Campers can be dropped off and picked up at every Apachi J Camp and most locations offer one-way or round-trip busing options. Every camp bus has an assigned bus counselor to tend to the needs of campers as they travel to and from camp.

In some cases, transportation is included in the Apachi J Camp Registration Fee. Please refer to your Apachi J Camp of choice for transportation fee specifics.

If you live in the suburbs, pick-up/drop-off will be at your house. If live in Chicago, pick-up/drop-off will be at a nearby street corner.
