General Program
First Photo of Sherwood Forest Sherwood Forest is way more than a camp. By balancing traditional camp adventures with evidence-based programs that reinforce and support school-year learning, Sherwood Forest connects with, educates, and inspires the youth of St. Louis. And in doing so, we help kids discover the best in themselves so they can grow up to do good in the world.

We serve children from low-income families and underserved communities from the St. Louis area, who live at or below the federal poverty line. A child who begins our programs at the end of first grade has the opportunity to “grow up” with Sherwood Forest over the next 11 years. We establish long-term relationships with our campers, their families, and the agencies and schools that serve them.
