We are a global 501(c)3 organization offering an "unrivaled camp culture" to the young and young-at-heart. We host weeklong summer camp adventures for kids 9-18 years of age and retreats for all ages, conduct camp staff training worldwide, extend an exceptional rental facility for retreats and events, and host laser-tag gaming with state-of-the-art taggers.
Below are key elements we strive to infuse in each event and summer camp program.
At Camp Swamp, we have a long-standing commitment to our families and friends to be “the safest place on the planet.” A lot goes into living up to that standard, so as a part of this commitment we want to ensure each of you understand as much as possible about the camp and its management. With this in mind, we have put together this Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) document as an easy to reference guide to some of the not-so-obvious-and-curious topics. May it increase your knowledge and comfort to our commitment to indeed make Camp Swamp “the safest place on the planet, besides your home.”
Participants are assembled in teams by age to augment peer-to-peer relationships.
Two or three student-counselors are assigned to each group to lead, train and care for participants.
Each team is given work assignment to fulfill the daily duties required to keep the camp running smoothly
Daily age-appropriate classes are offered with a curriculum emphasizing character enrichment.
Daily games are planned to encourage teamwork, strategy and physical education.
Two assemblies are devoted to public expression centered on gratitude and encouragement; this allows children chances to learn confidence in public speaking and to develop feedback skills helping them to understand the importance and impact of positive reinforcement.
One session is held under the stars as we discuss facts regarding our solar system, the distances of stars and the vastness of our universe helping children to understand that there is no other place or species known like us and that they are special and have a unique and sacred role to play in all of nature.
One session is dedicated to the power of forgiveness and the destructive nature that hate, anger, disharmony, and selfishness has on us individually and collectively in our relationships and societies in general.
