Description

Established in July of 1922, Sweyolakan is a Native American word which means "sigh of the pines." Camp Sweyolakan is owned and operated by Camp Fire USA Inland Northwest Council. Our camp is open to boys and girls going into 1st through high school.  You don't have to be a member of Camp Fire USA to attend ANY of the programs or events offered at camp.


As one of the nations largest youth development agencies, Camp Fire has a long and rich history. The agency was founded in 1910 as the first non-sectarian, interracial organization for girls (now coed). Built on the American traditions of pioneering and Indian lore, our guiding values are self-reliance, the importance of community and environmental education.  


Camp Sweyolakan sits on nearly 300 beautiful wooded acres on the shores of Mica Bay on Lake Coeur d' Alene in Northern Idaho. One of the oldest resident camps in the country, Camp Sweyolakan has been a summer haven for generations of young people for nearly 90 years.  An outdoor rustic camp, our activities include: swimming (lessons and free), canoeing, kayaking, water trampoline, archery, outdoor cooking and skills, high and low ropes course, and much more.  Great fun in the outdoors!
