Why French Woods?

What We’re About

French Woods Sports and Arts Center offers teenagers the perfect balance of a Classic American Summer Camp in the mountains with clean living, modern facilities, world-class instruction, and mature staff. FWC is a place where teens with varied interests can learn and grow in a supportive, age and content-appropriate environment.

We have set up a program of activity offering 100s of activities attracting kids with varied interests where they can focus in on their chosen activities and try new things.

Our goal is every camper returns home with treasured new memories, feeling good about themselves, having made new friends, improved on existing skills, tried something new, felt a sense of belonging, and wanting to come back again.

Why Campers Love Us

Quality Staff

Living and working in our vibrant community is fun, rewarding, challenging, and life-changing. This will be the summer you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

My daughter truly enjoyed her time at French Woods Sports & Arts this summer. She came home with a new camp vocabulary, wonderful memories and an unforgettable experience. She made new friends, disconnected from her devices, and explored new sports and activities she never would have had the opportunity to do at home. Her time at camp has allowed her to grow, to step outside of her comfort zone, to develop a deeper appreciation for personal connections and to enjoy the simple pleasures that good times and good people bring.

I want to thank you and your amazing team for the wonderful experience our daughter had at camp. Those four weeks have had a huge impact on her and she’s become more confident, organized, caring, respectful, responsible and the list goes on. As she said, she’s had “the time of her life”.

Mónica & Douglas Parents

Thank you for a wonderful experience my kids had during this summer’s session 4. I’m truly amazed how huge influence it had on them. They can’t stop talking about it and for sure they are planning to come back next summer!

Please continue to do all you and your family is doing, to make it possible for teens to grow, learn, explore and meet other kids from all around the world.

My first summer as a staff member at French Woods Sports and Arts was, and forever will be, the best experience of my life. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about it- I made lifelong friends from all over the world, met the most amazing kids, and gained so many new skills and confidence; all while doing what I love and being the happiest I’ve ever been. It is truly unmissable.

Since my daughter stepped off of French Woods Sports and Arts Center property after a month of being a first-year camper there, there has been nothing she holds in higher regard than her time there. She says, “It’s the only place where I really feel comfortable being me!” The worst part of CV-19 for her was not being able to attend camp in Summer 2020. These days you will often hear her in the house remarking, “I miss camp!” French Woods Sports and Arts is where your child can grow, learn, thrive, and just have a great time.

French Woods is truly one of the most amazing places in the world. As a former camper, CIT, and now staff member, FWC is my second home. Camp is an incredible place to grow, learn, have fun, explore, and be yourself. Being a camper and counselor both brought me the confidence to try new things, helped me step outside my comfort zone, and shaped me into the person I am today.

Cassidy Staff

Best camp ever. People from all around the world are welcomed, you make a lot of friends, there’s wifi so you can keep in touch with your family and share your experience at any time.
