French Woods Festival Days (Visiting Days) are a special opportunity for parents to visit camp and watch performances that reflect the hard work and dedication of the children. Spectacular Theater Productions, Circus Shows, Dance Performances, Rock Shows, Concerts, Equestrian Exhibitions, Fine Art and Media Displays, Magic Shows, Waterskiing Exhibitions and more, all take place during our Festival Days.
During the session, you will receive a schedule of the days events via email. Parents do have the option of taking their children home after their last performance or having them remain at camp until the following morning (the last day of the session - when pick up should be prior to 9 am). Afternoon performances generally end at around 4:00 pm and evening performances by 10:00 pm.
Visiting at any other time or date must be arranged in advance with a Camp Director. Unscheduled visitors will not be allowed on the grounds. Grandparents are welcome to attend visiting days. Please keep in mind that camp is rugged terrain and, while we assist where we can, all visitors must be physically able to get around camp. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
We welcome you to join us in the dining room for dinner on Festival Day 1 and for lunch and dinner on Festival Day 2. There are limited snacks for purchase at the camp store. You may not, bring food of any kind onto camp grounds, nor may you take your child/children off camp. Please note the following section about leaving camp grounds. Picnic dinners and homemade care packages, McDonalds or any other outside foods are NOT PERMITTED. Our extensive menu guarantees your child will receive both a satisfying and nutritious diet.
