Why Robin Hood

We’re so glad you asked.

We work hard to foster your child’s independence and emotional growth in a fun, outdoor and high-spirited setting.

At Camp Robin Hood we work harder to foster your child’s independence and emotional growth in a fun, outdoor, and high-spirited setting. It’s our specialty.

But picking your children’s day camp is a big and important decision. We get that. So we asked some of our parents and campers what they thought … take a look.

 

When other parents ask me why Robin Hood? My answer is always, how could you not?

We Care for Every Child as if They Were Our Own

Camp Robin Hood is a family. And that is how we treat every camper: like one of our own. We care. A lot. From the attentiveness of our office staff, to the follow up of our Section Heads, our families know that any concern will be dealt with personally and professionally. Perhaps most comforting to our families is the access that they have to our camp owners/directors Sari & Howie. This leave our parents feeling comfortable and secure.

We help kids learn through outdoor play

Our beautiful outdoor spaces allow campers of all ages a balance of supervised free-play and structured skill development. This unique country setting gives campers a sense of being away from their everyday routine and helps them to develop a keen sense of independence. Whether it is canoeing together on our pond, playing soccer with another cabin, planting vegetables in our garden or our twice-daily instructional swim, our campers are learning important life skills such as teamwork, perseverance and how to make and keep friends.

We celebrate and accept each and every child

At Camp Robin Hood every child is celebrated. We love that no two campers are alike, that each child has their own special set of strengths and challenges. In turn, our staff have the tools, training, and commitment to give every camper the most memorable summer ever. Everyone is welcomed into a balanced cabin group to ensure no one is left out. And if your child has special needs, know that we are here to ensure their camp experience is truly magical. Consistent communication, incredible staff, the best on-site health professionals and perfectly-planned programs make us confident you’ll discover a camp that makes all aspects of your family’s experience fantastic.

It is truly a place where children are loved, respected and can grow into the person they are to become. There is an incredible sense of community and family at Robin Hood.

We only hire outstanding leadership and staff.

Since 1946, and now in its second generation of family leadership, owners Howie and Sari Grossinger are recognized nationally & internationally as leaders in the field. Their commitment to providing camp families with outstanding staff is second to none. Through extensive training, mentoring, and a healthy dose of empowerment, every staff member has the tools and support they need to be an awesome leader. With many teachers in key supervisory roles, Camp Robin Hood is able to train and mentor staff and older campers to step into leadership. This has led to a culture of campers moving into staff roles and further reinforcing the fabulous spirit and values of Camp Robin Hood.
