French Woods

French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts is located on a private lake in the western Catskill Mountains of New York State near the Delaware River on the Pennsylvania Border. 

Our camp is approximately two and a half hours from New York City, between Monticello and Binghamton. 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.
