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.
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.
