French Woods is an individual choice performing arts summer camp for children from 7 to 17 years old. We offer programs in theater, dance, music, circus, magic, rock and roll, visual arts, film and video, sports, tennis, fitness, water sports, skate board, horseback riding and more. 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. We offers all the traditional camp activities a-la-carte, and are famous for our programs in dance, theater, music, circus, magic, visual arts , film and video, sports, tennis, fitness, waterfront, skate board, rock and roll and horseback riding.
