Swift Nature Camp is the perfect place for your child to spend their summer! Our overnight camp for boys and girls ages 6-15 is located in beautiful Wisconsin. We offer a unique blend of traditional summer camp activities and environmental education to help kids increase their appreciation for nature, science, and the environment. We’ve got it all – fun, friendships, adventure trips, and nature! Spend your summer with us – you’ll never forget it!
The first full day of camp is Orientation Day. Our goal during this day is to make you the expert. In order to make this happen, you’ll visit all of the main areas of camp so you'll know where everything is. By the end of the day, you’ll know your way from the Nature Center, to the waterfront, to the mailbox, and everywhere in between! You’ll also have many chances for questions and you can always ask your counselor if you missed anything. What will my day look like?Camp days often follow the same schedule. In the morning you will wake up by 7:30 am, have breakfast, clean up your cabin, and then head to two activities. Lunch comes next and is followed by some quiet time to just relax and maybe write a letter home. Next, you’re off to the activity of your choice and then almost two hours of doing whatever you want! In the evening, we’ll have a fantastic dinner followed by evening activities.
02. Should I bring a friend to SNC?
At SNC we do have campers who bring friends, however, most come independently. Although coming alone might be nerve-wracking at first, new campers find that they quickly make friends from all around the world. In the end, bringing a friend and making new friends are both good in their own way! Can I pick my cabin mates?Maybe. At camp we group campers by age and gender. If you have a friend coming to camp who is close to you in age and the same gender, there is a good chance you will be in the same cabin. Don’t worry if you become separated—each day you will still have many hours of time together.
03. What about fashion?
Old clothes are what we wear at SNC. When you arrive, you’ll quickly see that fashion and trendiness isn’t something we worry about. We prefer comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty! As a result, t-shirts, jeans, and shorts make for perfect camp clothes. Can we personalize our cabins?Of course! You can bring posters, pictures, stuffed animals, and anything that might remind you of home. All we ask is that you don’t write on the cabin walls.
