"The Safest Space on the Planet, Inside Your Home."
Why Virtual Camp?
In the face of an unprecedented time of disconnection and isolation throughout the world, we are looking for ways to facilitate global spiritual connections. This current situation is challenging our traditional thinking on staying connected, and through virtual Swamp we are taking the Swamp culture online to build spiritual relationships across the globe while keeping to our overall purpose of helping kids see God via "The Safest Space (Place) on the Planet, Inside (Besides) Your Home."
"I am excited to talk to different people and experience something I have never done before. Thank you for this opportunity."

"An amazing time of connection and reflection with God at the helm and new friends at our side. As I thought about the camp some more and discovered that I actually learnt to be myself more and the ring of honour gave me more confidence to do so." 🤔

What is Swamp Virtual Camp?
Swamp Virtual Camp is an opportunity for kids ages 11-18 to attend camp online with campers around the world, building friendships and connections across the continents. Because of camp cancellations and quarantine restrictions imposed in most countries, Swamp has developed an online camp on a virtual platform to help our campers experience the safe culture of camp digitally, connecting them to each other and pointing them towards God. There are Bible classes, devotionals, cabin time, challenges and plenty of mingles. Something to excite not only a camper but a parent as well!
"After participating in the pilot weeks of virtual camp, I am looking forward to the rest of the summer, where I know I will get to build new relationships all around the world. Camp is camp is camp, whether it is online, in another country, or here in the US. These relationships are things we will hold onto for years to come."
- Lucy, 18, Camper, USA

"First of all I'm very excited to be part of the first virtual camp and then to meet and get to know new people, as well as improving my relationship with God. A wonderful experience to connect with others and God." 🌿
- Gabriella, 17, Camper, Zimbabwe
With all the perils and pitfalls of the internet, we knew we had to approach this diligently using our usual Swamp standards: Safe-as-Home Environment, Fun-filled, Spiritual Experience, and Affordable-for-All Cost. This mindset led us to a connection, while attending the Quarantine Church Con this past March, where we met Kalah Haley, Founder/CEO of Saint Rock Media. She and her team introduced an online platform, called Hopin, which meets Swamp's highest safety standards: THREE levels of safety checks and offering key features allowing many of Swamp's traditional program elements at a reasonable registration fee making it accessible for kids from all societies around the world.

Let's Get Started...
Review the contents of this page and the FAQs with your child and family so everyone is on the same page.
Plan to Attend a brief mandatory parent meeting prior to your child's Virtual Camp week. Choose a date-and-time prior to your child's check-in date, which is listed on the registration form. (See options below.) Your choice will be recorded in your registration confirmation email. Your child's registration is not complete nor confirmed without your attendance at one of these meetings. Safety policies and expectations will be discussed at these live meetings conducted via Zoom. Each meeting will be recorded as a record of your attendance and agreement of the policies.
Register today. Review the openings listed below, then click the big yellow button below to access the registration form.
NOTE: If you are registering multiple children, it is important that a separate email is used for each of them. One Child = One Email. Your children's tickets will not work properly if you register them all with the same email.
Pay for the week. Payment is required at the time of registration. The cost is $45 for U.S. campers and $25 for international campers.
Look for separate confirmation emails: one for registration and one for payment. Be sure virtualcamp at campswamp.com is listed as an approved email sender. Five to seven days before your child goes to camp, he or she will receive an email with their individual link, or ticket, with detailed instructions on how to enter camp. They should use this link as soon as possible to create a Hopin account, if not already done, and check-in to the event
