Activities That Foster Success
Each of our specialty activities are carefully designed so that our young Munchies, Leppies and Gnomies 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 participants of our summer camp for preschoolers receive daily swim instruction using the preschool portion of the Life Saving Society’s Learn to Swim program developed in partnership with Shendy’s Swim School! In addition to this great program, 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.
