Davis Swift, Camp Susque’s Operations Director, started as Year Round Staff in 2016. Having been a camper in 1999, Retreat Staff in 2005, and Summer Staff in 2007, Davis is no stranger to camp culture. Add to that his experience in working with summer staff, teaching how to do a skill, and driving tractors, Davis is ideally suited to serve as Susque’s Operations Director. His love for tractors and his skill for mentoring colleagues in the office, cutting down trees, teaching rappelling, and coordinating building projects makes him the perfect person for this role. Working closely with the facilities, hospitality, program, and School of Discovery departments to make sure everyone works well together is one of his many strengths.
When Davis isn’t teaching how to do a skill or driving tractors all across camp at Susque, you can find him turning to his dearest mentor, YouTube, to learn new skills and creating videos for his D-Swizzle YouTube channel for pure fun. You may even find him building campfires or finding new #secretplacesofsusque, although Moss Run remains his favorite! Davis has a heart for family and finds it his perfect day off when he gets to hike and build a campfire with his wife, Kelsey, and two daughters, Evie and Piper.
