CAMP PROGRAM INFO: 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?

CAMP FACILITIES: Our camps are held at some of the most beautiful private campuses in America. Visit our website to find a location near you.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Active Learning Services, Ltd operates enrichment programs designed to stimulate creative thinking, improve thinking, logic and memory skills and give children "thinking alternatives" to sports camps and other summer programs. Our programs include chess programs and camps thru USA Chess, Our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Programs and our Active Learning Computer Enrichment Programs.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Day Camp Assistant (DCA) Day Camp Assistant (DCA) Training is the first step in Tanadoona’s leadership development program. Campers will spend part of their day in leadership training with lead camp staff – including behavior management, first-aid, specialty programming and more. You will be partnered up with a counselor during the rest of the day to assist with day camp groups in their daily activities. You'll stay overnight on Thursday, where you'll get a chance to help with Thursday Overnight campers. We recommend a minimum of two years of DCA before progressing to CIT. Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Have you always wanted to be a camp counselor? Join us for our Counselor in Training (CIT) two-week session. During the first week, you’ll make life-long friends; learn about camp administration; health & safety; leadership; planning and implementation; and camp operations. Camp Tanadoona has fantastic counselors and this is your chance to learn from the best! During the second week, you’ll work side-by-side with counselors, with the opportunity to implement activities you worked on during your first week. CITs will return home on the weekends.

CIT requires a special application process. Contact the Camp Fire office at (612) 235-7284 for more information. You do not need to have competed DCA to be eligible for CIT, but it is strongly recommended, please include your previous experience on your application. Summer of Service (SOS Leaders) Summer of Service is the final step in Tanadoona’s Leadership Development Program. This elite program is specially designed for past campers who have shown exceptional promise during other phases of the Leadership Development Program. Eligible participants will have completed their senior year of high school in spring 2014. Summer of Service Leaders will work with camp staff and counselors on all aspects of camp from traditional cabin groups to specialty program areas. The time spent at camp during their Summer of Service will prepare them for future leadership experiences in a camp or non-camp setting. Meals and housing are provided for Summer of Service leaders while at camp. SOS leaders must commit to a minimum of two weeks at camp during the 2014 summer. Spaces are limited, and SOS leaders must submit a special application for the program. Contact the Camp Fire office at 612.235.7284.
