Pre-Sr Kindergarten

We call some of our youngest campers Munchies and Leppies and this will be their first full-day experience away from home. Providing them with the most nurturing and caring staff is our top priority.

Great Staff Are Key

We maintain 2 staff for every 8-10 campers in this age group, ensuring the kind of attention that our parents have come to expect. This way you can relax and enjoy your day while your little one enjoys theirs.

My son Hayden’s first session at camp was in July 2014. As a former CRHer I knew how much he would love camp, but as a parent I was anxious about how he would adjust to the routine of being a first-time camper. He had never even seen the inside of a school bus before his first day of camp.

Aside from her older brother, my daughter (Munchies) did not know anyone going to CRH this past summer. After her very first day of camp, she came off the bus with a smile from ear to ear talking about all her new friends in her cabin. Her first camp experience was everything my husband and I could have hoped for!

Full Day With Just The Right Pace

We have a wide-range of activities designed specifically for this co-ed age-group. Every day is a fun mix of appropriately geared specialty activities (i.e. canoe, archery, dance etc) along with important friendship and teamwork-building, cabin activities. Throw-in two instructional swim periods, snack and lunch breaks, as well as time to re-apply sunscreen and play in the playground, and each day at Camp Robin Hood becomes a great adventure!

Activities That Foster Success

Each of our specialty activities are carefully designed so that our young Munchies and Leppies can be successful. Whether it’s hitting the bullseye at archery or navigating the calm waters of our canoe pond, campers participate in appropriately modified programs that result in accomplishment and huge smiles. Add in our daily dose of sing-songs and camp silliness and your kids are sure to shine.

Swimming at Camp Robin Hood

A significant component of the Camp Robin Hood experience is our commitment to delivering a high-quality swim program. Our facilities include four in-ground, heated swimming pools, some of which are equipped with diving boards and waterslides. Our swim staff are all fully qualified with both instructor and lifeguard certification. This ensures that our campers not only learn, and have fun, but they do so safely!

All campers receive daily swim instruction using the Red Cross Pre-School Swim Kids and Red Cross Swim Kids Program. In addition, their swim instructor meets them outside the pool area and escorts the group to their swim area. During free swims on Friday afternoons these campers will have a more structured free swim as this will take place with their actual swim group.

Munchies and Leppies Section Heads

Our Section Heads are our staff supervisors for a specific age group at camp. These are veteran camp staff with the experience necessary to ensure that your camper is having the time of his/her life. Have a question about camp? Your child’s Section Head is often your first point of contact with camp and definitely someone that can help!
