Swift Nature Camp is a Children's Summer Camp for boys and girls ages 6-15. Our focus is to blend traditional summer camp activities while increasing a child's appreciation for nature, science and the environment. Yet, Summer camp is much more. Swift is a child centered program 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. Everything we do at SNC is intentional.
As a Children's Summer Camp it is our small size that allows us to promote each child's personal development by providing fun, friendship and leadership in a supportive and noncompetitive environment away from home. While children are home all year long, that's your time to plant the seeds and direct the thinking patterns which guide your child to how they should behave and socialize. But at summer camp children will have an opportunity to act on their own, be self-reliant and try things for themselves.
Our goal is to guide children through good decision making along with being comfortable with their independence and that's a major part of growing up. Our counselors are the best, they model perseverance, listening, teamwork and appreciation of differences. Thus, helping campers adopt these same traits.
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. Children's 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 why not have your child join our Summer Camp family this summer?
