Apachi Village In Action

Megan Grenard

Director, Apachi Village Lincoln Park

Megan Grenard is bringing her 4 years of experience teaching 3 year-olds at Florence G. Heller JCC to Apachi Village at Lincoln Park High School. She was a camper herself at Apachi Flossmoor, so she is very excited to be back at Apachi and to get a chance to connect with her campers, families and staff. Megan can’t wait to see some familiar faces and to meet some new ones. She is especially looking forward to all the dress-up days!

Megan holds an Undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Iowa.  She grew up in the south suburbs, moved with her family to Iowa, and moved to back to Chicago in 2010. She enjoys being outside and exploring the many festivals hosted in Chicago.

Apachi Village Lincoln Park Details

Camp Groups

Groups are based on registration and friendship requests. Our three and four year old groups may be single gender or co-ed.

Friendship requests

Campers can submit friendship requests in the spring and we will do our best to accommodate mutual requests.

Our program is specially tailored for our youngest campers. Campers are placed in small groups with caring, nurturing counselors. Together they participate in sports, games, swimming, arts and crafts, tumbling and other special activities. Artists-in-residence provide entertainment and teach new skills through magic, juggling, percussion, dance and more.

British Swim School Swim Program

Campers are taught to swim at Apachi Village Lincoln Park using the British Swim School swim program, which is dedicated to excellence in safety and swimming skills. British Swim School has honed it’s 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.

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.

Convenient carpool drop-off and pick-up

Campers carpool to and from camp using our convenient carpool lanes. To make camp pick-up as efficient as possible, we assign each car or carpool a number that we can use to quickly match campers with their rides. Sweet, simple and safe! All campers in carpools are escorted to and from their cars by our staff.

Food

Please send along a sack lunch that we’ll refrigerate. Don’t forget to write your camper’s name on the bag. Plus we have kid-friendly snacks every day!

Food allergies

Safety and inclusion are top priorities at Apachi J 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.

3 Year-Olds

Whatever number of days you are looking for, our 3 year-old program introduces campers to the fun of camp plus swim instruction. Within small groups, guided by mature, experienced counselors, kids build confidence, make friends and have fun. You and your child will feel the reassurance you need for a comfortable and successful first camp experience.

4 & 5 Year-Olds

Our four and five-year-old summer programs are designed to provide a fun and positive camp experience for your child and peace of mind for you. Apachi Villagers participate in a full spectrum of activities where the emphasis is on being active, acquiring new skills and developing special bonds.

Campers benefit from meaningful participation in a camp community designed just for them. Small group sizes and experienced and mature, caring counselors give each child the attention he/she needs to thrive in fun summer activities like swim instruction, games, sports and more.
