French Woods is Americas leading performing arts facility where every child is unique. Children choose their own individual schedule, from more than 80 activities in music, theater, art, dance, circus, magic, sports, waterfront, and science. Activities are run by certified teachers and counselor specialists and are tailored to the child’s level of skill and interest. We offer recreation and beginner to professional caliber instruction in all activity areas, with a 2 to 1 camper to staff ratio, so every child gets lots of individual attention.
