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!
