It is a sad day here in the Realm. Yesterday morning we learned of the passing of John Klein, a former camper, and director of Camp Robin Hood. Andy Friedman, the founder of CRH, began training John to take over the camp in the 1970s. John and his wife Joan lead camp through some of its most formative years. They added girls camp in 1987, expanding our Robin Hood community for decades to come. They truly brought out all the magic in the trees.
We were lucky enough to have John visit The Realm to celebrate our 90th summer in 2017. It was an honor to have the newest generation of Robin Hood campers hear him speak and meet the man who helped shape our current owners and directors.
After hearing the news of John’s passing many alumni and camp families shared messages and stories of how John impacted their lives and the lives of their children.
