Green and White Day 4

Greetings from the Realm!

Two Green and White judges, Jamie Levine and Marjorie Kozloff here. Day Four of Green and White concluded with an epic talent show. The campers showed off their creative skills tonight with thoroughly rehearsed dances, hilarious skits, and beautifully performed songs.

Earlier in the day, we judged the Friars in gaga. What was even more impressive than their intensity in the pit was their sportsmanship and ability to come together as one group in the end.

Judging these kids immediately brought us back to our war in 2016. We grew up in the same group, and after 11 years in the realm together, we became the best of friends. Going head to head in the most intensive five days of our lives wasn’t always easy, but we never lost sight of the bond we strengthened by going through it together.

We have watched the entire camp compete against their best friends for the last four days. They are learning that they can run beside their best friend fighting each other for the ball on the soccer field, and after the final whistle, walk back to their bunk arm in arm. Camp is a place where your biggest competitor is also your biggest fan.

Green and White Day 3

Greetings from the Realm!

Eliza, Samantha, Hannah, Marissa, and Jill here. We’re visiting judges at camp for Green and White. This is our favorite part of each summer and we feel fortunate to spend time with our favorite people in our favorite place.

Here are some highlights from our time here: counselors running alongside campers during the track meet to encourage them to finish strong, great sportsmanship at arrow gaga, and a competitive and fun swim meet. It’s been a great color war so far and we’re excited to see what days 4 and 5 bring.

Judges (former counselor captains) played volleyball, swam, and enjoyed every minute back in the Realm. Chuck and Jeremy calculated the total years we’ve spent at camp…. a total of 863 years! We’re looking forward to welcoming this year‘s counselor captains as judges at the end of color war!

Green and White Day 2

Hi my name is Callum, and I am a Yeomen. This is my sixth year at camp and I love camp. A couple days ago, Green and White broke, and I was excited because Green and White is my favorite part of the summer and I anticipate it for the whole year. This morning, I left breakfast early  because I was chosen to  do the island swim for my team.  Then the rest of camp competed in a swim meet. The swim was really fun because I like to swim and watch swimming. I really enjoy Green and White because the intensity with all my friends is fun. After the swim meet we had lunch and then moved on to compete in other sports like volleyball and danish long ball. Everyone fought really hard today.

Happy to be back in The Realm

Greetings Robin Hood Family from my favorite place on earth.  I am a visiting judge of nearly 30 years and what I witnessed today was pure magic in the trees.  From the youngest girls and boys all the way through male and female staff, I saw every single member of the Robin Hood community giving 100% in everything they did. Soccer, basketball, volleyball, football and even cracker eating; campers and staff worked together towards a common goal…having fun.

I have seen many color wars throughout my years at Robin Hood.  Today was special.  There was so much team spirit and camaraderie among the groups, I couldn’t help but stop and watch in amazement.  The campers and staff at Robin Hood have such a special bond.  I saw Green and White team members walking arm in arm after they competed.  After playing hard on the field, they were laughing and having fun as they went on to their next competition.

I feel so lucky to be part of such a special place.  Tonight, I’ll revel in Pizza Barn with the judges and enjoy every second I have at the Realm.
