Sherwood Forest

Our belief that education and opportunity are rights fundamental to all children guides our mission: transforming the lives of children in need through powerful programs that allow them to discover their self-worth, realize their potential, and become productive citizens.

At Sherwood Forest, we believe education and opportunity are rights fundamental to all children. This vision guides our mission: transforming the lives of children in need through powerful programs that allow them to discover their self-worth, realize their potential, and become successful adults. We help kids discover the best in themselves so they can grow up to do good in the world.

Our programs are anchored in a month-long residential summer camp experience, and include school-year follow-up.  Traditional camp activities, such as overnight camp-outs, backpacking trips, and river excursions, are balanced by activities such as Book Club and the Creative and Performing Arts Program.  Everything we do centers around helping kids become lifelong learners and develop the skills, such as teamwork, independence, and responsibility, necessary to achieve success later in life.
