    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.

      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.
