Sherwood Forest Faire
How many of us wonder if we could have been really great at some type of craft or skill, given an earlier start? Sherwood Forest Summer Camp attendees have the opportunity to try their hands at many crafts and skills that are no longer widely taught. Maybe your child is a natural with a bow? Or perhaps they are made for the stage, but never had a chance to be in a play before. It is amazing what a child can learn without the distractions of the modern world.

Mother Falcon Music Lab
The Mother Falcon Music Lab is a creative education movement founded and run by Austin band Mother Falcon. The curriculum is inspired by Mother Falcon’s practice of collaborative songwriting, and has been developed based on primary experience as creators, educators, and professional performers. Now in its 8th season, MFML is seeking musicians ages 11-18 to participate in its summer program, which focuses on bringing instrumentalists and vocalists of all diversities and levels together to explore the potential and versatility of their creativity though improvisation, world music, photography, design and more. MFML seeks to bring together different viewpoints in order to foster an attitude of understanding, respect and open mindedness by eschewing entrance auditions and providing need based scholarships to up to 50% of campers. Students will learn marketing and promotion skills, create their own band name, logo and merchandise, create a light show and have the opportunity to perform their original song at a real Austin music venue.
