WHO WE ARE

Swamp Corps is the generative arm of Swamp Camp Services, Inc., the year-round retreat, conference and overnight camp facility affectionately known as Camp Swamp. Swamp Corps’ overarching purpose is to replicate Camp Swamp's camp culture by training Host Communities around the world how to plan, organize, and direct overnight summer camps for 9 to 18-year-old children.

Our objectives are:

  • To establish a perennial camp wholeheartedly endorsed and supported by the Host Community,
  • To extend service-learning and leadership training opportunities to students 14+ years of age,
  • To offer Host Community participants an overnight camp training process designed to teach and instill character in a memorable, fun-filled fashion.

Our Mission

We are a unique camp culture offering "a little taste of heaven" in a way that:

Fosters life-long memories and relationships,
Extends respect & hospitality to each individual,
Builds godly character, and
Creates a physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually safe environment

so that any one person—especially a child—has fun and is positively influenced.

Our Values

Truly, these concepts epitomize the heart of camp and the essence of the Camp Swamp Culture.

Everyone (parents, volunteers, counselors, and campers) has to feel mentally, physically, and emotionally safe in order for the spiritual self to be realized. Set an environment of respect; deal with bullies of all kinds, and create a culture of love. (Imagine an atmosphere where last names weren’t important; thus you were known for who you are and not all the ties to your parents, brother, sister, money, position, etc.) Thus our motto: “The Safest Place on the Planet, Besides Your Home.”
