Science Summer Camps
Swift Nature Camp is a Science Summer Camp for boys and girls ages 6-15. Our focus is to blend traditional summer camp activities with an appreciation for nature, animals and the environment. As Camp Directors, we are often asked "What are the benefits of a overnight summer camp experience?" Our primary answer at Swift is to facilitate a Fun and Safe, Educational Summer Camp. But we know that there is so much more to summer camp. For years, parents have found summer camps as an amazing opportunity to help their children mature.
At Swift Nature Camp, an eco frindly summer camp, our small size allows us to promote each child's personal development by providing
fun,friendship and learning in a supportive and noncompetitive environment away from home. At summer camp children have an opportunity to act on their own, be self-reliant and try things for themselves.
Swift Nature Camp has developed a hands-on eco friendly summer camp that promotes learning which includes field trips, such as visits to a fish hatchery and state parks;hands-on field projects, like goose banding and butterfly counts; and exciting camp presentations, ranging from visits with live owls to learning how professionals manage a forest fire.At this environmental summer camp kids don't just watch the excitement, they are in the middle of it participating.
We see Swift Nature Camp as an opportunity for each child to come to a new place and try new things and make new friends. Summer camp is a new world. Who you were before has no bearing on who you want to be, because camp is a new beginning. Many of our campers return year after year saying that "Swift allows me to be my real self with real people" and we feel that's a good thing.
All this happens in the fun and sun of the north woods of Wisconsin. For staff and campers alike, Swift Nature Camp is more than just a place to be: it is their summer home. So be a part of this science camp this summer.
