  • STEP 2: Check Eligibility
    U.S. Participant:
    • Be 14 years of age at the time of travel; unless child is traveling with parents--then just need to be camp age, which is 9-18.
    • Campers & Counselors Only: Attended Camp Swamp for at least four (4) weeks in your lifetime OR by special permission from the Director. (Other volunteers do not have to have Swamp Camp experience)
    •           Notable Exceptions
        • This can be waived depending on the needs of the trip. For example, Triangle applicants for Kenya are currently waived from this requirement based on the 5th bullet point in this list.
        • Once enough applicants who know the Camp Swamp culture have applied and been accepted, the remaining spots can be filled with those who have not met these requirements. This is especially true in Year 1 of training during which it is critical to pass on the camp culture during the first year experience.
    • Mature enough to work on a team in an extreme selfless, giving environment
    • Other factors will be determined on a case-by-case scenario (i.e. skills: counseling, nursing, life guard, special experiences, etc.)
    • Priority is given to those participants who are from a location that in any way supports the destination location so that relationships and sustainability are fostered and maintained between the two locations.
    • All approvals are at the final discretion of the Executive Director and Camp Program Director based on what is needed in order to most effectively meet Swamp Corps' Mission for the host community.
    • All counselors must pass a Background Check and submit a Letter of Recommendation from their ministry leader if not already on file for the current year. Click here to access online recommendation form.
