Staff 2015: Where are they now?

Jamie Levine – 2015 Group Leader1

I’ve been enjoying my sophomore year at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and I’m keeping very busy. I’m studying architectural interior design, so I spend long hours in the studio working on designs, models, and projects. I recently supported my sorority, Alpha Phi, in Miami’s Greek Week! It’s sort of like Green and White for Greek life, except it’s way more teams, and way less intense (because nothing is as intense as Green and White). I stay in touch with my camp friends; we talk every single day to stay updated on each other’s lives, and to reminisce on the best summer yet!

My favorite memory from this summer was leading a killer medley with my best friends on song night for the great Green Empire! I’m looking forward to another amazing summer in the Realm in 2016!

Charlie Payne – 2015 Head of Waterfront2

Hey everyone! I’m back in London working at the London 2012 Olympic Pool after another amazing summer at Camp Robin Hood! After working during Family Camp I headed on an incredible once in a lifetime road trip throughout the United States. Starting in Miami, with another counselor, I enjoyed a nice relaxing time in South Beach before heading to the Bahamas on a cruise for a few days. After all of my fun in the sun, I headed out west and rented a car to visit a number of National Parks, including the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley,Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches and finally Yosemite! After exploring some of America’s most natural wonders and fitting in a quick trip to Las Vegas, I headed over to Monterey Bay, California where I took a boat tour Whale watching and saw some of the Ocean’s largest mammals along with some friendly Dolphins. San Francisco was then the last leg of my US adventure with a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island before heading back to the UK. I am now finally back home counting down the days until Summer 2016!

My favorite memory from the summer was when the Lancers woke up at 5am to watch the sunrise over Lake Ossipee.

melMel Cohn – Group Leader

Mel Cohn will be returning for her 12th summer at Robin Hood and we are thrilled she will be a group leader for another set of young ladies.  Mel just completed a semester abroad in Sydney, Australia which she calls “an experience of a lifetime”.  She is in her junior year at Davidson University in North Carolina where she is studying psychology with a focus on child development.  She is involved in social and philanthropic groups and participates in intramural basketball and softball too! Mel has a true sense of what camp is like and understands the difference between camper and counselor.  Not only is she excited for her 2015 group of campers, she is excited to continue to inspire her former campers who are currently on staff!  Mel’s connection to Camp Robin Hood and it’s traditions are what keep her returning.  She recently sent the following advice to her former campers:  “keep coming back, pass the traditions on and take in the magic for as many years as you possibly can. Trust me, you won’t regret it!”  We couldn’t agree more, Mel!  Welcome back!

bruceBruce Heald – Intensive Specialist (Watercolors)

Bruce is excited to be returning to camp as an alumni from the 1960’s!  Last summer, after paying a visit to The Realm, Bruce recalled great memories of being a crafts, pottery and music counselor and has decided to return for another summer, bringing his love of art to the campers of Robin Hood.  Bruce will be offering Water Color intensives during the first three weeks of the summer.  He currently lives in Meredith, NH and is a Professor of Philosophy and American History.  He has written a number of books on the History of New Hampshire and is an accomplished artist.  We are excited to have Bruce join our staff this summer to share his talents and stories from camp in the 60’s. Welcome back, Bruce!


abramAbram “AB” Fleming – Tennis

Abram “AB” Fleming is from the small down of Gas City, Indiana and is very excited to spend his first summer at Camp Robin Hood.  He just finished his sophomore year at Butler University where he is majoring in Marketing and Management Information Systems with the hopes of one day working for a professional sports team!  Next year at Butler University he’ll be a Resident Advisor and the Vice President of the club tennis team.  AB has been playing tennis for over 12 years and loves every second on the court.  He has participated in many tennis camps over the years and gives lessons to children of all ages and skill levels.  When he’s not playing tennis, he loves spending time with friends, listening to music, and reading.  He can’t wait to meet all of the kids at Robin Hood, making memories of a lifetime!  Welcome to The Realm, AB!


Mark Dezell – Group Leader/Lacrossemark

After spending a few weeks with us during the summer of 2014, Mark is excited to be coming back for his second year in The Realm.  As soon as “Lacrosse Mark” left last year, he immediately missed the New Hampshire air and the environment created by the staff and campers.  Mark will be joining us this year as a Group Leader, as well as a specialty counselor for the lacrosse program.  He is looking forward to bettering each and every player on an individual level and working with a team of young men in their day to day life at camp.  When asked about choosing to return for another summer, Mark wrote, “From the best staff in the world to the most energetic and enthusiastic campers, the Robin Hood family is unlike any other and I cannot wait to be apart of it!”  Welcome back!
