And the best part, you and your children will have a chance to try out a few of the activities planned for this summer including:

Sports Academy Guided Tours

Have children that love anything sports? The Robin Hood Sports Academy is a great fit! You can take a tour of our all-sport program and facility, test out our specialized equipment or even shoot some hoops. Here are some of the activities you’ll get a chance to test out:

Meet Sari & Howie

We’re a family business–100%. In fact, we’re proud to be in our second generation of family ownership. Get to know Sari and Howie, they will be there all day; they are more than proud to run the greatest, oldest, privately owned day camp in Canada. Talk to them about why Camp Robin Hood is a great choice for your family.

Please join us on Sunday June 3th from 10:00am-3:00pm to come experience a taste of what our camp is all about! This is a great opportunity to meet some of our Senior Staff, take a tour of our beautiful outdoor facilities and ask any questions you may have. We will be there rain or shine and encourage you to invite your friends, family and neighbours who are thinking about camp to come join us!

Summer 2018! We are so excited. We can’t wait to welcome our returning and new families! Since the beginning, one of the biggest reasons parents have chosen Camp Robin Hood is the importance we place on our swim program! It is a cornerstone of our program and one in which we take great pride. And so to celebrate our 70th anniversary last year, we began a multiphase project to further enhance our swim program and facilities. This has included:

  • A partnership with Eric Shendelman of Shendy’s Swim School to provide even more training and support for our swim program. This year, we will begin using an all-encompassing 10-level Learn To Swim program developed by Eric and the Lifesaving Society.
  • Replacement of our chlorination, filtration and heating systems with state-of-the-art equipment to enhance the safety and comfort of campers in the water.
  • All 4 pools were given brand new rubberized deck surfaces last summer, making hard surfaces safer and more comfortable for all swimmers.
  • New for 2018, all Sports Academy campers will receive an additional swim, so like the rest of camp, they too will swim twice-a-day, every day with being an instructional swim

Our most noticeable addition to our pool area will be the brand new “shade shelter”. Camp Robin Hood is proud to have been awarded the 2016 Sun Safe camp designation by the Melanoma Network of Canada for our commitment to all facets of sun safety. This amazing honour provides for the building of a prominent shade shelter that families will be able to see for the first time at our June 3rd Open House. Also around camp, our Flagpole and our new indoor facility known as the “Sherwood Castle” are receiving a facelift, making some great changes to the central part of our beautiful campus.

Our programming is being enhanced too! We are excited to announce that all campers registered for traditional camp will experience a brand new high-energy specialty provided by the awesome staff at Everblast. Sports Academy campers will once again experience skateboarding during session 3 and 4! Following the success of the instrumental music program introduced in recent years, we’re thrilled that Glenn & Matt will carry on this fantastic specialty all summer long for all age groups.

The key to our success is the outstanding staff at Camp Robin Hood. We’ve completed hiring the majority of our staff for 2018 (60% of 2017 staff are returning). This group is already exhibiting the passionate and caring attitude that parents and their children have come to expect from us. And our Senior Staff (supervisory team) has kicked off their formal camp preparations with three days of working meetings at the beginning of May.

We know that you have the highest of expectations for your child’s programming and we continuously work hard to exceed those benchmarks. Please join us this summer! It is going to be great!

Over 70 years of exceeding expectations

There aren’t many businesses that can say they have been around for over 70 years. We owe our success and longevity to our staff, our parents and the tens of thousands of campers whose lives we have touched and who have made us a place that influences, improves and changes lives. We take this tradition very seriously and look forward to another amazing summer.

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

This event will run rain or shine. Please come dressed for the weather and keep in mind that the temperature at Camp Robin Hood is a few degrees colder than in the city.
