Frequently Asked Questions
TWO WEEK SESSION – we offer multiple sessions. Campers can attend during First Session, Full Session or Second Session. They can also attend any two weeks that fits the family schedule and are free to do that for multiple summers.
CARE PACKAGES – Robin Hood has a no package policy; we do not allow food in the cabins and believe we provide enough for your children to do; we also strive to be environmentally conscious. Of course, we do allow clothes, books and other necessary items to be shipped to camp. All packages are opened in the office in the presence of your child and a secretary.
PHONE – while Woody and DC are available each evening (and during the day in an emergency) to speak with you, campers are discouraged from speaking to their parents in the first two weeks (birthdays and anniversaries are exceptions); this allows your child to focus on camp. We allow one call/per week after the first two weeks. Calls are scheduled with the office and not allowed during activity periods.
INFIRMARY – Robin Hood's Infirmary is staffed with nurses and nursing assistants who are available 24 hours a day. While open 24 hours, Clinic Hours are after breakfast and dinner; medications are distributed at meals per the Health Forms completed before camp and pre-packaged by CAMP MEDS. We have a relationship with Memorial Hospital in N.Conway.
BIRTHDAYS (at camp) - are always a time for a cake and a parade with Happy Birthday sung by the entire camp. If you would like to do something additional for your child, you may request Dunkin Donuts at wake-up, an ice-cream trip to the Cozy Corner or a Pizza Barn pizza party at your expense
FOOD – Healthy and Tasty are the words used by our campers to describe our food. Jamie sets the menu and treats your children as she does ours. no sugared cereal, no whole milk, and snack in the afternoon is fruit. We only have one desert a day only - either lunch or dinner.
Breakfast finds fruit, granola and yogurt at the salad bar, 4 cold cereals and oatmeal and an entrée like Pancakes, French Toast or eggs. Lunch will have an entrée, a gigantic salad bar with toppings, tuna salad, egg salad and chicken salad and soy butter and jelly (remember, we are peanut-free). Dinner brings a larger entrée and a smaller salad bar, a pasta alternative and soy butter and jelly.
Fruit is available all day.
Plenty of variety leaves no one hungry at Robin Hood.
BOY-GIRL INTERACTION – we believe activities and sports are meant to be single gender (Intensives can be an exception) so most of the day is spent with friends from your child’s group. Boys and Girls may interact at Rest Hour in our ‘Quad’ (as they are not allowed in each other’s camps) in a relaxed, supervised atmosphere. Our 15 and 16 year olds have opportunities for supervised time together in the evenings.
As parents of daughters, we believe in a healthy amount of ‘boy-girl’ interaction, while the main focuses are the activities and their fellow campers in their groups.
UNIFORMS – we are NOT a Uniform camp and place no emphasis on clothes; in fact, we recommend simple, plain clothes. Hair-dryers and make-up are not allowed; we do require a Robin Hood shirt for Inter-Camp competition and when leaving camp.
CAMPER POPULATION – part of what makes our culture unique is our geographical diversity; while the bulk of our campers are from the Northeast, we attract many, many campers from the mid-west. We also attract campers from Colorado, California, Florida and the Beltway. We have international campers from as close as Canada and as far away as Spain.
COMPETITION – while instruction and good values are emphasized, we do not shy away from competition and believe it is an important part of a child’s development. We offer as much competition as a child wants. We compete with fellow camps in the Lakes Region in every sport and most activities. We also offer unique opportunities for competition such as USTA Tennis Tournaments in Portland, ME.
