    At French Woods we pride ourselves on offering you a unique individualized camping experience. Campers completely determine which activities they will participate in. Children are offered a wide range of performing and visual arts in addition to programs in sports, waterfront, horseback riding, and much more.

    Each camper chooses their own schedule from a very large number of options. Kids who like similiar things do activities together, making it easy to make friends and connections.

    There are six activities per day; three of these periods are called majors and three are called minors.

    Majors are chosen at the beginning of each session and are maintained for the three weeks. Minors are chosen daily at breakfast. This lets you concentrate on the things that interest you, while giving you the chance to try something new every day.

    Your counselors, head counselors and the program office staff will work with you to help you choose a program that's right for you. French Woods festival offers a broader range of activities at higher levels than anywhere else in camping, while still being open to beginners.

      This camp is one of the most accepting camps I have ever experienced. This is the most artistic atmospheres that anyone could be engulfed in, and I am so happy that I have found a home here. Anyone who goes here just feels welcome and gains so much experience in anything they would want to learn. I have gone to this camp for 5 summers now and learn more and more every summer. Their theatre department is one of a kind with the fact that they are actually able to put up amazing productions in only 3 weeks (with a full live orchestra)! Every department holds its own and presents outstanding artwork. The truth behind this camp is that it is all about having fun, making friends, and building memories.
