Our goal is to encourage students to make a difference in their community by fostering respect, independence, mutual understanding, civic engagement among their peers and building strong long-lasting relationships. Students will gain a better understanding of who they are, who they aspire to be and to prepare them for the world beyond middle and high school.
At Camp S.W.A.G., we believe that social media is a great tool. However, it cannot compare to human interaction; face-to-face communication, and emotional connections. These are necessary tools for youth development. At Camp S.W.A.G., Membership is about young people coming together with a common cause to enhance their community through personal growth, development of long-lasting friendships and to gain mutual respect for one another.
The Camp S.W.A.G. Youth Leadership Program (YLP) provides a safe non-judgmental and caring environment where members can come together and explore what leadership is and looks like their community. Our leadership program will spark imagination and creativity, promote honest and clear communication, develop complex listening skills, and collaborative thinking.
