Swift Nature Camp

Minong, Washburn County

 See Camp Location
This summer let your childs natural curiosity for nature be Discovered. Located in the Northwoods of Wisconsin on a 1,500-acre lake, SNC offers fun and exciting traditional camping activities for boys and girls ages 6-15.

Our special Discovery Camp is a nurturing program for first-time overnight campers, offering additional staff to provide support and encouragement to overcome homesickness and build confidence. The program welcomes no more than 50 first-time campers, and the special attention that this intimate group receives is the reason that more than 92% of them wish to return.

Our mature staff, many of whom are teachers (and most have been counselors or campers at this and other camps), create a safe nurturing atmosphere, where self-accomplishment, team building and personal growth are promoted. Our activities are non-competitive, giving everyone a change to participate. They include swimming, sailing, skiing, canoeing trips, kayaking, backpack trips, baseball, volleyball, archery, arts and crafts, rollerblading, horseback riding, scuba and earth science and of course FUN. Let a lifetime of great memories begin this summer.
