Important Summer 2020 Update
The countdown to Summer 2020 is ON!
We are thrilled to announce that Apachi will open this summer and offer a single, 5-week session for all campers. We will continue to follow all recommendations from State and County Departments of Public Health, the CDC, the American Camp Association and JCC Association as we prepare for the start of camp with adjustments to the program to ensure the health and wellness of the camp community. We could not be more excited to share our official start dates!

This summer, our groups sizes will be limited to no more than ten campers, two counselors and possibly CITs (Counselor-in-Training); each group will become a “camp family.” All camp activities will happen within the camp family, providing an extra special summer of deep friendship, learning and exploration, and endless fun under the Apachi sun. Limited intermixing amongst camp families will allow us to keep each group self-contained while building strong family bonds that celebrate our values of kindness, inclusion and respect for every individual who is part of our family.
Yes, there will be parts of camp that will be different this summer. There will be daily temperature checks and health screenings for all campers and staff, handwashing stations across the campus, handwashing during the day and before eating, campus access limited to campers and staff only, and, as we shared last week, lots of water play!
But, to know us is to know that our Apachi spirit is bursting with pride, boundless love and unbridled enthusiasm for the summer that awaits— a summer filled with fun, adventure, everlasting friendships, new experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. Our children will finally have the chance to spread out and play on our sprawling green campus with counselors and staff ready to welcome them home to Apachi.
Knowing there are many questions about camp this summer we have created FAQs, available for each Apachi location below, to provide more details about the program, payments and more about what to expect this summer.
Please note: If your child is coming to camp this summer for our single, 5-week session you MUST complete and submit a Letter of Intent. This form, also available for each Apachi location below, must be completed for each camper in your family even if you have previously completed all of your forms.
We ask you to submit this form by Tuesday, June 9 at 12:00 p.m. (NOON) as space is limited due to the guidelines regarding social distance and group size. Our maximum number of campers is being adjusted accordingly for Summer 2020 based on the facilities at each campus.
We know this is a lot of information but please know we are here for you and your child every step of the way. Please don’t hesitate to call or email your Apachi director with any questions.
