Our Innovative Approach

Sherwood Forest is so much more than “just” a camp – it changes lives. While our programs are anchored in a month-long summer camp experience, as a year-round youth development organization, we offer both experiential adventures and evidence-based programs that reinforce and support school-year learning. Traditional camp activities such as overnight camp-outs, extended backpacking trips, and river excursions are balanced by programs such as Book Club and the Arthur and Helen Baer Foundation Creative and Performing Arts Program.

Sherwood Forest offers an environment of acceptance, support, self-discovery, and learning like no other. Here, kids cultivate their individual interests and talents, immerse themselves in nature, and develop important life skills such as teamwork and responsibility.
