Director's Message

principal

Mike Denby, Director

“Camp is such an amazing and unique experience for each individual person. It provides the opportunity to meet people from around the world and make friends, share in some extraordinary experiences, make new memories that will last a life time and have FUN! As a returning member of the Swallowdale family, I can contest that this camp was an amazing and fun experience for me and one that I wouldn’t trade for anything. Swallowdale Camp is the perfect place for your child to engage in hands-on experiences in a risk-free positive environment and master skills, whether it’s language, swimming, sailing, guitar, archery or one of the many other activities we offer. I look forward to getting to know everyone this summer, not just as campers and staff but as friends. I am confident that together we will make this summer one of the most memorable and special experiences ever!”

Evening programme

The evening programme is an opportunity for students and staff to have fun together. The programme is a combination of cabin-based activities and leisure options. Swallowdae Camp-wide activities include: Campfires, Camp Games, Cookouts, Overnight camping, Sports tournaments, Skit nights, Talent shows, Theme days and meals


Cabin life

Campers are divided by age and gender, and take pride in being part of their cabin family in friendly competitions and games. Our cabins accommodate 8 - 12 campers. Each cabin has a toilet, sink and electricity. Additional washrooms and showers are located separately in a central facility.


Daily Activities

Each week, campers select their activities from the following: Water sports: Canoeing, Kayaking, Fishing, Sailing, Swimming, Windsurfing Field and Court Sports: Archery, Ball Hockey, Basketball, Frisbee Golf, Mountain Biking, Soccer, Tennis, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball Specialty Programmes: Arts and crafts and Woodworking ESL - English as a Second Language course (optional, 2 periods daily)


A typical day...

Traditionally, Swallowdale Campers start their day off with a Polar Bear Swim (optional). After flag raising and breakfast our activity periods begin. Swallowdale Camp is structured around five 1-hour activity periods daily (3 in the morning, break for lunch and 2 in the afternoon). At the beginning of each week, campers select their activities from a wide variety of water and land sports, as well as specialty programming. Campers attend their chosen activities for one-week blocks, ensuring that they develop solid skills in those particular areas. We have a general swim in the evening before dinner and then our evening programme begins.


Unforgettable Experience

A few days ago, my son Jorge came back from Swallowdale after spending 3 weeks at the camp. For him, this was the first time to travel by himself. As it was normal, some fears where obvious just a few days before he had to leave Mexico. Today, after going through this experience, those fears have changed to happiness, laughs, sense of humor, and unforgettable moments with all his friends and counselors. Now Jorge is a teenager who has lived one of the happiest experiences in his life which will be remembered and shared for the rest of his life. These are just few words to demonstrate my deepest gratitude with you for helping my son to have this great experience that will help him to be a better human being. Thank you very much!


Language Learning

1) My first time in Swallowdale was in 2006 because my parents wanted me to learn English and to meet friends. This is my second time at this camp and I am going to come back next year! 2) I love Swallowdale! I can't speak English well, but everyone is very patient to listen when I talk. It's very nice. Everything at Swallowdale is very nice!


Activities

I like Swallowdale because it is unique. I love the camp songs. The counselors are so fun and helpful. I learned a lot of things here like windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking¦they are fun and exciting. Also I have met people from around the world who speak different languages. The food is delicious and everything in this camp is excellent.


Friendships

I love Swallowdale Camp because I meet good friends here, because it is in the nature, because we can do water activities and land activities, because I learn English, because I see my friends from last year, and because the counsellors are so nice.
