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.
French Woods offers summer camp programs in dance, theater, music, circus, magic, visual arts, film and video, sports, tennis, fitness, waterfront, skate board, rock and roll and horseback riding. We cater to children from 7-17 years old. Younger campers have more guidance and supervision, while older campers are able to take on some responsibility and have a chance to work in the areas of their interest. Each camper designs his or her own unique summer experience.
We feature world-class programs coached by diverse, multi-national and talented counselor and adult staff members. Campers are able to focus on one particular area of interest, or they may choose to select a variety of our activities. Although we are a dance camp, theater camp, music camp, circus camp, magic camp, visual arts camp, film and video camp, sports camp, tennis camp, fitness camp, waterfront camp, skate board camp, rock and roll camp and horseback riding camp, we are also a camp that offers all the traditional camp activities that can be chosen a-la-carte. French Woods is located on a private lake in the western Catskill Mountains of New York State near the Delaware River on the Pennsylvania Border. The camp is approximately two and a half hours from New York City, between Monticello and Binghamton.
