Camp Fire Camp Sweyolakan

Camp Sweyolakan sits on nearly 300 beautiful wooded acres on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene at the mouth of Mica Bay in Northern Idaho. One of the oldest resident camps in the country, Camp Sweyolakan has been a summer haven for generations of young people since 1922!

People, young and old, can relax and enjoy learning about themselves and the world around them in the beautiful setting of the lake, mountains and forests. Enjoy all the great activities on the water, cooking out over a campfire, archery and so much more.

Special Needs – You bet I CAN! (YBIC)

Camp Fire is open to everyone.  The uniqueness of every individual and family is embraced every day.  We run an inclusive program that focuses on building skills and gaining self-esteem as part of the outdoor experience.  We want every child to have the opportunity to participate in camp.  Campers with ANY sort of special need are encouraged to attend any of our camp sessions.  We are a legacy partner of the National Inclusion Project – Lets ALL Play program.  Your camper will have the opportunity to say “You bet I CAN!” (YBIC) and participate in all of our camp activities alongside their peers, ages 6 – 25. Campers must be able to navigate uneven terrain and be potty trained, or provide a caregiver to assist with task.

The following sessions will have additional qualified staff brought in to work with a larger population and variety of our campers with special needs. Campers who need more specialized support or one-on-one assistance should choose either Session 2 or Session 5.
