How would your kids like to be transported back into a world of knights, ladies, and medieval times this summer? Sherwood Forest Summer Camp offers a unique experience where kids can embrace the past in a beautiful forest setting, and immerse themselves in a week-long, sleep-away experience where they learn skills that were essential to daily living in the medieval era. Campers have the rare opportunity to try their hands at many crafts that are no longer widely taught — archery, falconry, swordplay, leatherwork, blacksmithing, herb lore, juggling, and more.

Kids ages 7-15 can attend this exciting overnight camp on the 23-acre medieval village just outside of Austin. Sherwood Forest Summer Camp offers three one-week sessions. In addition to their medieval classes, each camper will have swim time, free time, and of course three healthy meals cooked by professional chefs each day. In the evening, kids will sleep in either the magnificent Sherwood Castle or in one of the Merry Folks’ Pavilions (both climate-controlled).
