Description

Swift Nature Camp is a Wisconsin Outdoors Summer Camp for boys and girls ages 6-15. Our focus is to blend traditional summer camp activities with an appreciation for nature 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 Summer Camp in Wisconsin. 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 matureSummer CampHiking and Canoe Trips At Swift Nature Camp our small size 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. To put it in one wordsummer 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.Staff are here for the campersNew Friends to Make at Summer Camp 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 why not join our Swift family this summer?
