Three times each session, Sweeney campers rock out with our very own band, the Sweeney 5! Campers learn and sing along to popular songs with their own camp twist. An incredible atmosphere, special camper performances and friendly competitions fill campfire nights with F-U-N!
Four times per session, the Shull Activity Center is transformed with lights, fog, and decorations as campers come to dance the night away. Whether you’re finding your best summer luau gear, dressing up as your favorite character for the Halloween Dance, or lighting up the night in neon swag, dances are a guaranteed good time for the entire camp!
All Camp hike
Near the beginning of each session, the entire camp comes together to hike all the way around the lake, walking and chatting with new friends the whole way. While younger campers hayride back to a campfire, older campers share a moment watching the sunset atop Meditation Mountain. The night ends with a cookout for all to celebrate the accomplishment!
The younger campers get a special night all to themselves as we load up the buses and head to Jumpland – an indoor park full of slides, ball pits, and everything else a child could want for a night of activity and fun!
After the gates close to Hawaiian Falls, campers will have the park to themselves as they explore the Lazy River, the Wave Pool, 7 different giant slides, and even Keiki Kove – a massive water structure just for younger campers.
The older four cabins board buses and ride into Frisco for a night of bowling and hanging out with friends. According to our campers, it doesn’t matter if you’re an expert bowler or a novice, the night is sure to be a perfect 10!
Let the games begin! The longstanding tradition of the Sweeney Olympics continues each Sunday during the summer sessions. Campers join the Alpha or the Beta Team on their very first night, then compete in games, athletic events, and a medical quiz bowl, all in the hopes of taking home the title.
Every age group gets a chance to ride out to a local skating rink and spend the night rolling around with friends. Campers agree, whether they’re rolling around the rink or snacking on tacos, the night is full of F-U-N!
Each session features a high spirited carnival with F-U-N for all, including inflatable obstacle courses, Zorb balls, face painting, a mechanical bull, game booths, and much, much more. We kick off the carnival with the coronation of the King and Queen, then campers spend the night winning prizes and hanging out with friends of every age!
We know that every Sweeney camper has a talent to show off, and our Talent Show is the perfect time to let them shine! This event is broadcasted live for friends at home to enjoy as every camper has the opportunity to perform a song, skit, or dance for the entire Sweeney audience.
Each session culminates with the Awards Banquet. Campers are recognized for their achievements in activities and the knowledge they have gained during medical lectures. The event is broadcasted live so parents can share in their child’s successes. To finish the night, campers gather in the Shull Activity Center for a final dance to celebration the completion of the session.
