For more than 40 years, the Camp Swift overnight camp program has enabled us to provide economically disadvantaged youth with a free residential summer camp experience while simultaneously providing teen counselors with opportunities to volunteer and make a real impact. At Camp Swift, we provide campers and counselors with nutritious meals, physical activity, and a safe environment where they can learn and play – all while fostering positive mentor relationships between youth and teens. Activities are led by high school and college-aged volunteers acting as role models for making positive choices in health, physical activity and behavior.
The Annual Swift Carnival is a fun and free way to introduce Swift's programming to future campers and counselors. Seventh through twelfth grade teens team up with economically disadvantaged kindergarten through second graders, and are invited to play carnival games, get their faces painted and eat lots of freshly prepared barbecued food!
