About Sherwood Forest
2708 Sutton Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63143, US
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 productive citizens. Simply stated, we help kids discover the best in themselves so they can grow up to do good in the world.
Founded in 1937, Sherwood Forest provides at-risk, economically disadvantaged young people with positive, enriching activities that help them learn experientially and achieve critical developmental milestones key to their long-term success as adults: to be productive, to connect to others, and to navigate healthy choices.
Sherwood Forest is a year round youth development agency with programs anchored in a residential summer camp experience. Quest is our year-round program which begins with our summer camp and is followed by school-year Continued Contact programs. This provides youth with opportunities to learn and grow in a unique environment. The camp setting provides fun and recreation with many opportunities for active learning experiences, while school-year activities give children the chance to develop strong relationships with peers and staff in their own communities. We offer an additional Outdoor Education Program to community schools, churches, and youth groups. These programs reinforce classroom learning by allowing students to explore STEM topics, creative arts, and leadership in an alternate setting.
