Swift Nature Camp is a Kids 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. We are very intentional about everything we do at Swift Nature Camp.
We believe it's our small size that allows this Summer Kids Camp to promote each child's personal development by providing fun, friendship and leadership in a supportive and noncompetitive environment away from home. At Swift Nature Camp we provide a unique opportunity kids to act on their own, be self-reliant and try things for themselves.
Thus, summer kids camps provide 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.
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 kids 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 join our Swift family this summer?
