At Sherwood Forest, the health and well-being of our campers, families and staff is our top priority. We continue to monitor the presence of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community and the recommendations of our government and health officials. It is with this knowledge and caution that beginning Monday, March 16, we are suspending all Sherwood Forest camp activities both in St. Louis and at our Lesterville camp location until Friday, April 3, 2020.

During this time, we will not be holding any face-to-face meetings. Camp weekends will be cancelled. If possible, we will hold some program meetings through virtual means. This information will be communicated to each camper and family on an individual basis.

Sherwood Forest will continue to carefully monitor the situation and provide updates as soon as possible. If you have questions about Sherwood Forest’s response to COVID-19, please call our office at (314) 644-3322.

For additional information about COVID-19 and prevention methods, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website about the virus.

We look forward to continuing our programs as soon as possible and to seeing our campers exploring and learning at Sherwood Forest this summer.
