Apachi Adventure Camp is not just an ordinary summer day camp. Aside from the traditional day camp option, there is also an adventure camp. The nine-week adventure camp program allows children to expand their personal development through drama, art, field trips, and sports.

In addition to personal development, active learning and self-esteem are fostered through activities with professionally-trained staff. With its diverse plans and programs, each day is different at Apachi Adventure Camp. There is little worry that a child will get bored, and there are also weekly themes to keep them engaged and learning.
