Preparing For Camp

Please send your camper to camp each day in comfortable clothing appropriate for summer weather and they should wear closed-toe shoes. Don’t forget to include a bathing suit and a towel for swimming!

Additional items your camper should bring to camp each day include sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat, a water bottle, a change of clothes, bag to place wet items in after swimming, and goggles.

Yes, please provide a sack lunch and please remember to write your camper’s name on the bag.


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

A $500 deposit is due for each session at the time of registration, of which $250 is refundable until February 1.  After February 1, the deposit is non-refundable. Families applying for fee assistance provide a deposit of $150 at the time of registration. If fee assistance is not awarded or declined, the deposit is refundable minus a $25 processing fee.  Prior to April 15, camp fees are refundable minus the $500 deposit as explained above. Cancellations that occur after April 15, will be assessed half of the camp fee. Once a program begins, no refunds will be granted for cancellations. Additional details of our registration policy can be found here.


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 Day 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 Day Camp Registration Fee. Please refer to your Apachi Day Camp of choice for transportation fee specifics.

Depending on which Apachi Day Camp location you attend, if you live in the suburbs, pick-up/drop-off will either be at your house or at a cluster bus stop, a central group gathering location. If live in Chicago, pick-up/drop-off will be at a nearby street corner.

Apachi Day Camp Hours of Operation

Camp begins between 9:00-9:30am, depending on your camp location. Apachi Village camps end at 1pm and all other Camps end between 3:00-3:30pm. Please refer to your Apachi Day Camp of choice for individual camp start and end times.

Most of our Apachi locations offer Before & After Care services for an additional fee. Please refer to your Apachi Day Camp of choice for individual Before & After Care details.

Visiting Apachi Day Camps

Several Apachi locations can be toured during the school year. Please contact your Apachi Day Camp’s director for more information.

Health & Safety

In the rare event of a serious injury, you will be notified immediately and, if you are unavailable, we will contact those on your emergency contact list.

The presence of an on-site nurse varies from location to location. Please refer to your Apachi Day Camp of choice for details.

All campers are brought to each Apachi Day Camp’s indoor space in the event of rainy or dangerous weather for unit based activities.


There are several support options available to ensure a successful summer for your camper. You can choose from support through JCC Chicago, Keshet, or your child’s paraprofessional depending on which option works best for your camper and family. For more information, please connect with your Apachi Day Camp Director.

Food & Allergy Policy

Safety and inclusion are top priorities at Apachi. Our camps are committed to being allergy-safe. While our camps are not allergen-free, we strive to make our camp environments as safe as possible for children with food allergies using a customized approach and working closely with each family to develop an action plan for the child.
