Swamp Corps' secret sauce is packaged in week-long overnight camps with activities, classes, and interactions geared towards teaching skills, behaviors, and methods related to the key pillars of character: service, humility, forgiveness, gratitude, and encouragement, all in a manner of extreme fun. While the camp agenda is dynamic from week-to-week and/or year-to-year, the following key elements are fixed into each week for maximum effectiveness while staying true to our mission:

Swamp Corps Peer-to-Peer Strategy
South Africa: 9-10 year old boys team.

Participants are assembled in teams by age to augment peer-to-peer relationships.

One or two student-counselors are assigned to each group to lead, train and care for participants.

Daily games are planned to encourage teamwork, strategy and physical education.

Two assemblies are devoted to public expression centered on gratitude and encouragement; this allows children chances to learn confidence in public speaking and to develop feedback skills helping them to understand the importance and impact of positive reinforcement.

USA: Camp Swamp Night Sky.

One session is held under the stars as we discuss facts regarding our solar system, the distances of stars and the vastness of our universe helping children to understand that there is no other place or species known like us and that they are special and have a unique and sacred role to play in all of nature.

One session is dedicated to the power of forgiveness and the destructive nature that hate, anger, disharmony, and selfishness has on us individually and collectively in our relationships and societies in general.
