Frequently Asked Questions
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.
TELEPHONE CALLS - To ensure the happiness of all of our campers here at the realm we continue to reevaluate our policies and procedures and tailor them to work in the best interest of our campers, their families, and our staff. To this end we have decided to update our phone policy. Campers will no longer be allowed to receive phone calls during their session at camp with the following exceptions: If the camper or their parent has a birthday that falls during the session for which they are registered.
All phone calls will be kept to a strict time limit of 10 minutes.
Woody and other members of the administration are always available by phone and by email if you would like an update on your camper or if you need to pass some information along to us regarding your camper.
INFIRMARY – Robin Hood's Infirmary is staffed with trained medical staff. Clinic Hours are after breakfast, lunch and dinner; medications are distributed at meals per the Health Forms completed before camp and pre-packaged by PACK MY RX. 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.
