29 Mar French Woods Sleepaway Performing Arts Summer Camp
French Woods is a co-ed sleepaway performing arts summer camp for children aged 7 to 17. Campers come from every state and over 40 countries. Internationally recognized as a premiere program in the performing arts, we feature options in music, art, theater, dance, circus, magic and horseback. In addition to our core activities, all the programs of a traditional summer camp and more are included in our offerings.
Campers are able to focus on one particular area, or choose to select a variety of activities. We celebrate diversity and provide a safe environment for children to try new things.
Younger campers have additional guidance and supervision, while older campers can participate in community service and legacy projects in addition to college prep courses.
At French Woods we have one of the most ambitious theater schedules in camping, producing more than 80 full-scale productions every summer. Musicals are supported by our music program, which provides small combos and full orchestras, as well as having a full performance schedule of their own for band, jazz, orchestra and symphony performances. Our Circus program is the largest in the world, with a custom twelve thousand square foot covered pavilion featuring every sort of circus apparatus. Many of our programs are the best in the industry, our rock and roll, skate park, horseback, cooking, dance, and sports program rival those at camps that specialize only in those activities, while allowing French Woods campers to also take part in everything we offer.
We are located on over 1000 acres of hills, fields and woods bordering a private lake in the town of Hancock, New York in the Catskill Mountains.
