Traditional Camp or Sports Academy? How to Choose?
Understanding that each child has varied interests and needs, we offer two choices of programming for our campers. Take a look at the key features of each and decide which one best suits your child. If you like them both, we have helped many families register for multiple sessions so their kids can enroll and enjoy each of them.
Traditional Camp – Camp Robin Hood
For campers 4 years (as of July 1st) or older, our traditional program has all of the classic features of summer camp; arts & crafts, archery, dance and many more. Our unique country setting allows us to incorporate programs like canoe, campfire activities and climbing activities in our century-old barn. Activities are focused on the positive social interactions and experiences of our campers highlighting participation rather than a major focus on specific skill development. We love that campers become comfortable in a canoe paddling in our wonderful “donut-shaped” pond rather than perfecting the “j-stroke”. Add in two swims per day (both instructional for campers up to Grade 3) and each day is action-packed and super-fun! Here is an example of what a typical day would include:
8:45 – 9:30 Arrival and Flagpole Activities
9:30 – 11:30 Activities (Specialty and Cabin)
11:30 – 12:00 Instructional Swim
12:00 – 12:45 Change and Lunch
12:45 – 1:30 Activities (Specialty and Cabin)
1:30 – 2:00 Instructional Swim
2:00 – 2:30 Change and Snack
2:30 – 3:30 Activities (Specialty and Cabin)
3:30 – 4:00 Announcements and Dismissal
My daughter says camp is enjoyable because all the staff are so nice to be around and she feels like they care about her. I like that my daughter is encouraged to try the activities and given support when she can’t quite do it (archery). She was so happy to have been able to accomplish archery by the end of her 2 weeks.

My son had the best summer here at Robin Hood. We have already talked about signing him up for next summer and he’s so excited to get into sports academy when he is old enough. We were so impressed with how the camp was run and all the activities that were done with him. I would recommend this camp to every parent with kids who are of the age to attend camp!!!
