How many of us wonder if we could have been really great at some type of craft or skill, given an earlier start? Sherwood Forest Summer Camp attendees have the rare opportunity to try their hands at many crafts and skills that are no longer widely taught. Maybe your child is a natural with a bow? Or perhaps they are made for the stage, but never had a chance to be in a play before. It is amazing what new things a child can learn when you take away the distractions of modern technology and put them in a beautiful forest with skilled teachers.
All of our hands-on activities take place in our 23-acre medieval village. Campers will be transported back in time to a world of knights, ladies, and a simpler way of life. Campers will work with their hands to create useful tools and learn skills that were essential to daily living in the medieval era. No modern entertainment devices will be available.
Every member of our team, whether a paid staff member or a volunteer, undergoes a strict screening and application process, and is required to participate in First Aid and CPR training. Our nurse is on site 24/7 and our pool is monitored closely by a certifed lifeguard. Meals are prepared by food industry professionals. We are fully state certified.
