Sherwood Forest’s Quest program is designed for children in 1st-9th graders who live in the St. Louis region. In order to be eligible for our programs, campers should live in one of the following counties – St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Jefferson County, Franklin County, St. Charles County, St. Clair County (IL), or Madison County (IL). Sherwood Forests reserves 80% of our spaces for children from low-income families. This is defined by a child’s qualification for the Summer Food Service Program. Campers who do not qualify for this program are able to attend camp, but priority is given to those who do qualify. It is also a requirement that campers themselves have a strong interest in going to camp. Regardless of a parent/guardians wish for their child(ren) to go to camp, if a child does not want to come to camp, they will struggle to adjust to camp life and, in some cases, might never fully adjust. Please be sure to discuss camp thoroughly with your child(ren), to make certain that they want to attend camp.
What qualities help children succeed at camp?
- desire to attend camp
- ability to live in close quarters with others
- ability get along well with others
- ability to take direction from young adults and/or adults who are not part of their family
- ability to take responsibility and consequences for their actions
- ability to care for themselves independently
- ability to verbally express their needs
- willingness to try new things and accept new experiences
- have respect for other camper’s belongings and personal space
In addition to a desire to attend camp, children must be able to demonstrate behavior that is safe and appropriate for their age. We are not a therapeutic camp. While we will work with children to help them transition to camp life, we are not able to manage behaviors that make camp an unsafe environment for your child(ren) and other children.
