A summer at Camp Sweyolakan is far more than going to camp. It’s a way of life for the summer and an opportunity to positively affect the kids, and have fun in the process!

Counselors-in-Training get our full attention as we help them develop strong character, life skills, and values. We help kids understand the world around them and how they have an impact on it. Campers learn to push themselves; they gain confidence, independence, leadership and a positive outlook. Camp teaches understanding, patience, responsibility and cooperation.
