Swift Nature Camp

Swift Nature Camp is an overnight nature camp for boys and girls ages 6-15. Our focus is to blend traditional summer camp activities while increasing a child's appreciation for nature, science and the environment. 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. Swift Nature Camp offers traditional summer camp activities along with an environmental focus. Campers enjoy an active Nature Center, Pet Zoo, and Department of Natural Resources sponsored programs, plus recreational activities that include canoe and backpack trips, horseback riding, swimming, arts & crafts, team courses, archery, sailing, water skiing, tubing and sports.

In addition to these traditional activities, Swift Nature Camp is so much more. We are a child-centered program located away from technology, celebrity culture and academic pressures. Through fun activities and positive staff role models, we help children develop lifelong skills such as confidence, teamwork, leadership, compassion and communication. Our small size allows us to promote each child's personal development by providing fun, friendship and leadership in a supportive and noncompetitive environment. While away from home, children will have the opportunity to act on their own, become self-reliant, and try things for themselves. Many of our kids return year after year saying that "Swift allows me to be my real self with real people." And we feel that's a good thing! All of this happens in the fun and sun of the north woods of Wisconsin. For staff and campers alike, Swift Nature Camp is more than just a place to be: it is their summer home. So why not have your child join our summer camp family this summer?

Culver Summer Schools & Camps

Residential Coed Camp

Culver, Indiana

Established in 1902

Culver Summer Schools & Camps

The summer of a lifetime

There's camp, and there's Culver. The difference? One summer camp mother of 13 consecutive years put it this way, "Our four sons agree that the best gift we have ever given them is Culver Summer Schools & Camps. Where else can young men and women make lifelong friends while learning that competition is fun and challenges are exciting all at an amazing campus with friends from around the world?"

Culver offers young people 9 to 17 the opportunity to enjoy the most remarkable summer of their lives. Culver's structure allows campers to develop self-confidence while learning the value of self-discipline. They learn to overcome self-imposed limitations; improve technical, academic, and athletic skills; and how to push for their personal best. All while learning to ride, ski, sail, scuba, and even fly.

For 110 years, Culver parents have marveled at how their sons and daughters return home with a greater ability to cooperate and interact with others, achieving not only their own goals, but family and group goals as well. And Culver campers have returned again and again to enjoy their summer of lifetime. Go to culver.org/summer to watch our video and learn more.
