If you love water, our camp is the place for you! We have a long list of fun waterfront activities to choose from. Plus look forward to spending the evenings looking out to a beautiful sunset on the lake. Tubing, water skiing, and kayaking are just a few of our waterfront activities.
Back on land, there are plenty of options for fun activities campers can get involved in! With an expansive forest and plenty of sports areas, there is something for everyone. Try archery or riflery, or maybe take a bike ride. With so many options to choose from, our campers will never be bored.
Campers get ready to experience nature up close and personal. This includes spotting deer and eagles, looking at the full moon through our powerful telescope, watching beavers build their homes, playing with frogs and insects, and so much more!
At Swift Nature Camp we believe we are an integral part of your child's development. We see ourselves as more than a place of fun and new adventures. Our goal is to help your camper mature and grow up to be a responsible, kind friend to others. Here are eight of the things we believe are important. Some of the life skills that we feel are important to introduce and work on here at camp are instruction,friendship, acceptance, teamwork, and responsibility. Our campers can count on one another and learn to be open to everyone. With these skills, they are able to succeed here at camp and in other social settings.
When you join the community of Swift Nature Camp it might seem a bit overwhelming with 80 or so children at camp. Yet it is your cabin with no more than 10 campers that will be your home during your stay. These boy or girls will be your core group, kinda like a family. You will spend a majority of your time with these brothers or sisters, eating, playing and working together as a cabin to enjoy camp to the fullest.
Friends are the reason campers return year after year. In fact, a major, if not the most important, component of our staff training is teaching counselors to foster those friendships and help campers who struggle to make friends. A child will only love camp and have fun if he or she has a friend to enjoy it with—SNC knows this and works hard to help friendships bloom and grow. When a team works and plays together, friendships are often the result. That's why campers tell us they have better friends at Swift Nature Camp than back home.

As a Director of an Overnight Summer Camp in Wisconsin for over 20 years, I have seen a change in how parents deal with their children. Obviously, when I was a kid my parents spent alot less time worrying about me. Oh sure I was loved but I was given time to figure stuff out on my own even if that meant small failures or getting in trouble. But more importantly, I was given something we all want more of TIME.
