At Swift Nature Camp, a Children's Coed Summer Camp for boys and girls, we have fun summer camp activities while increasing a child's appreciation for being outdoors in nature. Yet, Summer Camp is much more, we are child centered, away from technology, celebrity culture and academic pressures. Through fun activities and positive staff role models, we help children develop life long skills such as confidence, teamwork, leadership, compassion and communication. We are very intentional about everything we do at Swift Nature Camp.
Our small size allows this Coed Summer Camp to promote each child's personal development by providing fun, friendship and leadership in a supportive and noncompetitive environment away from home. Coed camps prepare children for the real world. At Swift our goal is to guide children with their interpersonal skills in healthy ways. We want our campers to be friends with each other and forget about the the gender related rolls society puts on our children.
Swift Nature Camp provides independence, and that's a major part of growing up. When campers find adult friends called counselors, who model perseverance, listening, teamwork and appreciation of differences, campers set new and high standards for their own behavior. This in turn brings their new found independence more in line with your at-home teachings.Read more about the benefits of a Coed Summer Camp.
We at Swift Nature Camp view camp as an opportunity for each child to come to a new place and try new things while making new friends. Summer Camp is a new world. Who you were before has no bearing on who you want to be, because camp provides a new beginning. Many of our campers return year after year saying that "Swift allows me to be my real self with real people" As a coed camp we help kids practice making friends with the other gender. With proper supervision, we help get children ready for the real world.
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 why not join our Swift family this summer?
