Camp Walden: The logical choice
Did you know that Robin Hood’s owners Sari & Howie Grossinger are also the co-owners of Camp Walden, an overnight camp in Eastern Ontario? The consistency of ownership, parent communication and overall camp philosophy have been the reasons why so many parents have seen Camp Walden as a natural place for their children to attend after experiencing Robin Hood.
Here are some ways to make a transition to Camp Walden seamless for your child…
Walden Long Weekend
This 2 night experience serves as wonderful taste of what Camp Walden has to offer. From travelling on a coach bus to living in a typical camper cabin, the Walden Long Weekend is a great experience. Throw in meals in the dining hall with the entire Walden community and activities all around camp and your child will have the time of their life. The program is geared to children who have never been to overnight camp before and more details can be found by visiting the Camp Walden website.
Home & Away
Our ultimate transition program is “Home & Away”. This unique program combines two weeks at Robin Hood with two weeks at Camp Walden under the supervision of Robin Hood staff who make the trip with our campers. This fantastic month of camp is available to campers who have completed Grades 2 & 3.
Last night was a nice reunion for our family, but Cole said he was “CAMP SICK”. Thankfully he prefaced his sentiments with telling us he missed us, but he said he already misses Camp Walden. He asked me if I would buy him a bunk bed so he could set it up like his top bunk in the Green cabin. He had a wonderful time, and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for doing all that you do to run a safe, happy, comfortable, warm, fun and loving day camp and overnight camp.
