Kids at Pinewoods

Families are welcome

Pinewoods is a magical place for everyone, especially for kids! The Folk Arts Center welcomes families to attend our sessions. Pinewoods Camp was not originally designed for children; campers under age 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. There are no cribs or other special equipment for kids in camp, so parents should bring a portable crib for small children. Regular beds are assigned for kids aged 3 and up.

Registration policy

The FolkDays session accepts up to thirty children aged 3–13 and offers separate classes for them. Classes include dancing, arts and crafts, singing, and other activities. The Weekend session, though geared toward adults, accepts up to twelve children aged 3–13. If there are more children aged 3–13 interested in attending either session than there are slots available, families are chosen in a lottery on February 13, with preference given to those attending Both Sessions. For any session, teens aged 14–17 register as young teens or young adults, but they must attend with a parent or guardian. Children under age 3 are not counted in the numbers accepted and are welcome to attend with their parents. Fees are listed on the Fees and registration page.

FAC and Pinewoods Camp policies for campers under age 18

Parents and guardians bringing children under age 18 to FAC Pinewoods must first read the Policies for families and children. Before arrival at camp, parents and guardians must complete and submit a Parent Responsibility Form for each child coming to camp.
