French Woods Festival was founded in 1970. Through the years the program has expanded and now includes dance, theater, music, circus, magic, visual arts, as well as well rounded sports and horseback riding programs.

French Woods offers children from seven to seventeen a unique opportunity to explore their interests and improve their abilities in a wide variety of performing and visual arts as well as more traditional camp activities. Each child is able to create a unique schedule that caters to their own individual interests and abilities. Children come from across the United States as well as many countries to participate in our extensive program. Regardless of your abilities, there is a place for you in every program at French Woods Festival. You may attend any or all of our four 3 week sessions.
