Robin Hood T-Shirt Contest

Camp Robin Hood

Thank you to everyone that submitted a design for our first ever t-shirt contest. We had so many wonderful submissions it was hard to choose one winner. With that being said…

Congratulations Maddie N.

…for creating our favorite camp t-shirt! Each member of the 2015 Quills will receive a printed shirt with her design.

We were so impressed by the number of submissions that we have also decided to print the spirit shirt designed by the 2015 Scribes. The shirt will be on sale through Amerasport starting in the spring.

Staff Updates…

Check out what our staff are up to!

Ailbhe O’Conner 

Hi All! I am back in Galway, Ireland and just graduated with my Masters in Finance. I recently began training as a business consultant for KPMG. I am also working hard to balance my new job with Premier League Basketball.

Favorite camp memory: Playing in the waves on Beach Day. I also enjoyed coaching the Archers at a basketball tournament at Indian Acres, it was so much fun! Last but certainly not least, I miss life in Siberia with the Bows and dancing in the Dining Hall at lunchtime! 

Jordan Lawrence 

Hi everybody, what a great summer! I am now living in Sydney, Australia working for a major bank. I love to spend my time at the beach, jogging along the costal paths, and of course lifting! I get camp sick when I think of the amazing kids who shared their summer with me and the awesome 2014 staff who worked hard to ensure a memorable summer for everybody.

Favorite camp memory: So many memories, but the one that sticks out for me is the cookout lead by the Saxons after hiking Mount Katahdin. Over 10 miles and 12 hours on the mountain and they still had the energy to make a really special dinner to celebrate their achievement. The Saxons of 2014 sure know how to grill a steak! 

Marj Kozloff 

This fall, I started my freshman year at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. I made the mistake of signing up for Organic Chemistry as a freshman, but still manage to make time to hang out with Gabe Gordon and the most honorable James Newmyer. After a summer of running around with the Quills, I’ve slowly readjusted to spending my time with people my own age. I still get my fill of hanging out with younger kids by tutoring local third graders in reading. Maybe Chuck will let me help out with the study group next summer!

Favorite camp memory: The highlight of my summer was bringing Christmas to camp mid-July. The Quills spent the day sporting red and green, listening to Christmas music, decorating the two little pine trees in front of the Dining Hall, and eating Christmas cookies.

Hello Robin Hood Campers!

Camp Robin Hood

As the cold winter strikes Cleveland and Chicago, we cannot help but dream of being back at Lake Ossippee with the summer sun beaming down.

We want to thank everyone that joined us for Candy Canteen at the 2014 New York City Reunion. It is always magical to see everyone reunite and reminisce on the previous summer. We hope everyone is enjoying their yearbooks and reliving their time at The Realm.

While the summer of 2014 is in the past, there is much to look forward to in the summer of 2015. We are working vigorously on several improvements around camp. As you all know, we are turning the camp parking lot into an amazing new field that will be ready for action on opening day. The new parking lot is located by the main sign and is completely paved and ready to go! Additionally, a number of new roads will be weaving into camp by the Grandstand, around the Quad, and behind the Dining Hall. The bathrooms in Girls Camp Bunks 9 and 10 will be renovated and getting showers. We are also excited to announce a new bunk will be replacing the shack in Girls Camp. Last but not least, we cannot wait for you all to see the new camp video, which will be available for viewing around January 15th!

With the summer just 6 months away, we have started to gather the staff of 2015. Each summer our staff gets better and better. We enjoy meeting new people from all around the world and love watching past campers evolve into wonderful staff members. We are so proud of last summer’s 1st Year Aides and know the Saxons and Scribes of 2014 will continue to raise the bar as staff members.

Summer 2015 is right around the corner and several groups are filling up fast. Please be sure to enroll soon to guarantee your spot at camp this summer. Please visit our website to enroll. We look forward to seeing you back in The Realm on June 26th!

We want to wish you all a Happy Holiday and hope you enjoy the DVD as our token of thanks to you! Please continue to reach out to us and let us know what you are up to. We hope to see many of you at the Cleveland Reunion this spring.

Best,
