Apachi Village In Action

Beth Miller

Director, Apachi J Camps – City

Beth Miller has been with Apachi J Camp for over 20 years. Nothing makes her happier than to see campers and staff return to their summer home year after year. The Apachi J Camp spirit is just part of Beth and she loves the community formed each summer.  Her favorite thing about summer is engaging with campers every day and being a part of funny “kid moments”.

Beth holds an Undergraduate degree in Communications and History from the University of Kansas, a Master’s degree in Education from National Louis University, and was a former teacher. Beth is a mother of three boys, all who spent many summers at Apachi J Camp,  and she loves playing board games…mahjongg, rummikub, you name it!

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.

American Red Cross Swim Program

Campers are taught to swim at Apachi Village Lincoln Park using the American Red Cross’ Learn-to-Swim program, which focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving campers the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, it makes it easy to build confidence in the water. 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 sent home during the summer with a summary of skills your child is working on and those already mastered.

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.


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.
