Inclusion Program

Robin Hood was the first day camp to fully integrate children with special needs; an unheard of concept back in our early years. It came from a natural desire to care for every child and it has been truly gratifying to see staff and campers of all abilities embrace each other’s differences. Camp is a powerful social experience for everyone.

Inclusion at Camp Robin Hood

Under the direction of Camp Owner/Director Sari Grossinger, we are proud to be recognized internationally as leaders in the field of inclusion. As a paediatric Occupational Therapist, Sari and her team of professionals, work with families throughout the year to ensure a successful summer for all. This includes special training for our staff, providing adaptive equipment where needed, and planning modified programs. Throughout the summer, a Camper Relations Representative provides a consistent point of contact for families requiring extra attention.

Before enrolling in this program, Sari and the Camper Relations Team will often conduct home and/or school visits to assess if our camp is the right fit for their child. Camp Robin Hood is not a traditional therapeutic environment therefore the assessment process includes important discussions between camp, family, teachers and other professionals as necessary. Our goal is always to provide a positive camp experience for all of our campers. We recognize that we cannot meet every child’s needs but do our best to work towards a safe and successful summer for all involved.

* Some additional fees are associated with this program.

The staff was amazing with our son and with their support he fully integrated with his cabin and was a part of all the activities. The confidence he gained at camp this summer has now extended to three other NEW group participation experiences.

One to One Support Services and Fees

We are able to support campers with various special needs. If you have questions, please book a consultation with our Director Sari Grossinger to discuss further.

When one-on-one support is determined as necessary, either Camp Robin Hood can provide the staff for this directly or the family can provide an appropriate individual to support the camper. In both cases, the Camp Robin Hood Camper Relations Team is on-site to support the child and their support staff.

Camper Relations Teams

Our Camper Relations Team (CRT) consists of four experienced Camp Robin Hood staff members who, during the school year, work professionally in the field of “Special Needs”. At camp they focus directly on campers and their families in providing a smooth transition into the unique environment that Camp Robin Hood provides.

Members of the CRT also participate in training and supporting our staff, while providing adaptive equipment and modified programs. The goal of this team always remains the same, including campers & staff of all abilities in our regular programs, ultimately providing a great social experience for all.

We know that an environment where campers of all abilities prosper together is a truly unique experience!
