Venturer & Explorer Summer Camp

One of only a few summer camp facilities dedicated solely to Venturers and Explorers, Swift High Adventure Base at S bar F Scout Ranch is truly a unique program for your Venturing Crew, Explorer Post, or older Scout Patrol.

The Ranch’s 270-acre Nims Lake serves as the focal point for water skiing, sailing, fishing, canoeing, swimming, water tubing, sun bathing, kayaking and water sliding. Our herd of horses will allow you to saddle-up and explore the wilderness trails. If heights and challenges are your thing, we offer rock climbing, rappelling and a high and low ropes course. You may want to try your hand at firing a .22 rifle, pistol, shotgun or archery. Evening programs include campfires, dances, volleyball and crazy competitions. Or you might go out for a canoe trip overnight. At Swift, you choose what you want to do.
