Summer Youth Camp
Dear Parents & Campers,
Swift Nature Camp is a Children's Summer Camp for boys and girls ages 6-15. At SNC we blend fun summer camp activities with Exciting nature programs that help increasing a child's appreciation for nature, science and the environment. But we know 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.
At Swift Nature Camp our small size allows us this Summer Youth Camp 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 campers are bright kids who enjoy being away from home practicing their new found independence. Summer youth camps are an optimal way to provide independence. Our Camp Counselors model perseverance, listening, teamwork and appreciation of differences. Thus, guiding campers set new and high standards for their own behavior. Hopefully bringing 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 youth 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?
