Sr Kindergarten to Grade 7

Campers in this age range get to enjoy the full-range of activities that Robin Hood has to offer.

Excellent Variety Each Day

While an amazing cabin experience is still the priority, our aim is to add new activities for each age group every summer. Whether it’s the introduction of climbing activities for campers who have completed grade 2 or our Senior options program for campers who have completed grade 4, we strive to make each and every summer fresh and appropriately challenging.

Camp Robin Hood gave my daughter a safe place to come out of her shell and the confidence to be herself. It is the nurturing, caring, and attentiveness offered to all campers at CRH that kept us coming back.

The ‘Robin Hood Camp Dance’ has become a regular activity in our house. My son, 6 and daughter, 4 enjoy showing off their moves to all our friends and family and are already gearing up for Camp Dance 2016.

Camp Friendships Begin to Flourish

Summer camp provides wonderful opportunities for positive social development in ways that the school system just can’t deliver. Our careful attention to camper grouping and careful placement of staff are the keys to our successful cabin groups. Our daily schedules are also designed for campers of all ages to interact in socially appropriate ways under the supervision of our skilled and fun staff (2 staff for every 12-14 kids). We feel that camp friendships are the best friendship and we work hard to live up to this.

More Steps to Independence

In addition to our daily program, we encourage campers in this part of our program to participate in our optional Extended Day and Overnights. On these special days, SK-Grade 1 campers can stay at camp until 8pm and enjoy an evening program that extends their day and gives them a chance to enjoy camp until dusk. Campers who have completed grades 2-7 can see the stars over Robin Hood at night and wake-up to the wonderful sunrise in Markham. Parents love these programs because they are building blocks to enhancing kid confidence and set the stage for success in our transition to overnight camp program, “Home & Away” with our overnight camp, Camp Walden.

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!

Campers receive two instructional swims daily and always look forward to our “Free-Swim” Fridays where we get to end each week with even more fun.

Most campers in our SK-Grade 7 program participate in swim programs throughout the year. They love their swim and so we are happy to place each in their proper ability group under the supervision of qualified instructors and lifeguard certified staff. We are proud to use the Red Cross swim program and will communicate the progress of your child throughout their stay with us.

The 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!

Sports Academy


At Robin Hood Sports Academy, we provide skill development through a completely inventive, multi-sport adventure. Our campers join in a two-week instructional clinic, all under the watchful eye of quality coaches. Not only do we emphasize new skills, but we also make sure to highlight cooperation, tolerance, and the ability to be a great team player. Designed to keep kids active while encouraging moderate competition, we end each week with our highly-anticipated Gameday. (Go, Sports Academy !)
