Lindsay Farmer

Director, Apachi Old Town

Lindsay Farmer is the director of Apachi Old Town and has been with Apachi J Camp for four years. She loves seeing the  family that camp creates – a place where campers feel heard and part of something greater. Lindsay’s favorite part of being a camp director is seeing how many lives Apachi J Camp impacts. She loves seeing campers grow to be more independent and confident individuals.

Lindsay holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Ball State and Master’s degree in School Counseling from Purdue University. During the school year, she is a 8th and 9th grade school counselor at Gavit Middle/High School in Hammond Indiana and when she isn’t working, Lindsay loves to be outside camping with her wife and their dog, Henry.

British Swim School Swim Program

Campers are taught to swim at Apachi Old Town using the British Swim School swim program, which is dedicated to excellence in safety and swimming skills. British Swim School has honed its teaching method over fifty years and the cornerstone of the program is using a fun and gentle approach to build water survival skills. Safety is our priority and all members of our Aquatics staff are American Red Cross certified lifeguards with CPR training for the professional rescuer.

Apachi Old Town campers will swim at Lincoln Park high School. Explorers will have swim lessons and Trailblazers and Sports will have free swim.

Testing, Placement and Progress Reports

Campers are tested at the beginning of summer and placed in an appropriate swim level based on their skills. They pass through levels based on both formal and informal testing. Progress reports are available each day through the British Swim School app.


Our convenient carpool line helps your camper get to their group easily and speed you on your way. A staff member will come to your car rain or shine to help your child out of their seat. You’ll get to see your camper with a smiling counselor by their side and you never even have to get out of your car. At pick up time, just use the carpool line again. We will bring your child to you, buckle them in, and you will be on your way.

Optional round trip bus

For an additional fee, families can select to have their children take the bus to and from camp. Buses are driven by licensed, professional drivers and supervised by Apachi staff. Campers are required to wear seatbelts at all times. We have bus routes from several neighborhoods on the city’s north side, downtown and Hyde Park (express). Our bus stops are “cluster stops” for groups of campers, not individual stops. We try to make the cluster stops convenient for families as well as safe and efficient.

For campers registered prior to April 15, you will select your bus stop from a list. Campers who register after April 15, will be assigned to a stop close to their home.

View our proposed bus stop map.


We provide pizza lunch on Wednesdays and a hotdog cookout on Fridays as well as a daily snack. For the remainder of the week, please send along a sack lunch that we’ll refrigerate.

Food allergies

Safety and inclusion are top priorities at JCC Chicago Day Camps. 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. More information can be found here.

Immunizations & Health Forms

To participate in camp, campers must have a completed health form signed by a physician on file. We also require documentation of immunizations.
