Year of foundation 1964
Accomodation type The program follows a traditional camp model that mixes assigned activities in the morning with camper choice in the afternoon. In a true light-hearted camp form, afternoon activities are chosen using popsicle sticks on a board in the dining hall. The smaller size of Swift Nature Camp allows them to have flexibility in programming during the session. More importantly, it allows for a very personal, kind approach to camp life. It’s reassuring to know that each camper will be heard and appreciated at Swift.

Swift Nature Camp is an overnight nature 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.

Swift Nature Camp offers traditional summer camp activities along with an environmental focus. Campers enjoy an active Nature Center, Pet Zoo, and Department of Natural Resources sponsored programs, plus recreational activities that include canoe and backpack trips, horseback riding, swimming, arts & crafts, team courses, archery, sailing, water skiing, tubing and sports.

In addition to these traditional activities, Swift Nature Camp is so much more. We are a child-centered program located away from technology, celebrity culture and academic pressures. Through fun activities and positive staff role models, we help children develop lifelong skills such as confidence, teamwork, leadership, compassion and communication. Our small size allows us to promote each child’s personal development by providing fun, friendship and leadership in a supportive and noncompetitive environment. While away from home, children will have the opportunity to act on their own, become self-reliant, and try things for themselves.

All of 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 have your child join our summer camp family this summer?

Camp is all about you



Activities - Get ready because there is so much for you to do at SNC, you might just run out of time to do it all. There’s no need to be nervous about trying new things, because at SNC we focus on fun over competition. Your friends will encourage you while your counselors will give you as much or as little instruction as you need. This non-competitive focus really makes a difference. When there are no losers, you are a guaranteed winner! Whatever session you choose, you’ll be smiling as you experience each and every activity that camp has to offer!
