“Let’s take our hearts for a walk in the woods and listen to the magic whispers of old trees.”
Anyone who has experienced Camp Robin Hood knows about the “magic in the trees.” The Realm is truly a place like no other. Each summer, campers participate in a day where “Robin Hood Gives Back”, working with various populations who have overcome hardships. At Camp Robin Hood, we find importance in creating a diverse camp environment, while simultaneously heightening the awareness and sensitivity of our campers to others’ unique backgrounds. We are proud to be a camp that gives back and even more pleased that this has carried over into our camper’s and alumnus’ personal lives.
The Magic in the Trees Foundation, Inc. was established in 2013 by a group of Robin Hood alumnus, including Andrew Arnot, Eli Fuchsberg, Duncan Mendelsohn and Emily Schorr. Camp Robin Hood had a huge influence on their growth as individuals and because of that they were driven to create an opportunity to provide the same experience to other young men and women. Since it was founded, Magic in Trees Foundation has been able to send a family with 2 children to camp and is excited to send them to The Realm again this upcoming summer.
On June 6th, 2015 the second annual Green & White Softball Game in Central Park was hosted by the Magic in the Trees Foundation. Generations of Robin Hood Alumni (and their future RH offspring) gathered in New York City for some friendly competition “Green & White” style. While the sun was shining and the weather was a 10, the fields were closed due to rain earlier in the week. In true Robin Hood fashion, everyone at the event rallied, beans were picked, and the first Green & White “paddle ball” game was played!
Magic in the Trees Foundation is a 501c3 organization, making your 2015 donations eligible for tax deductions. The support from RH alumni has been amazing and while they haven’t met their 2015 goal, yet, they are committed to sending even more children to camp. Green & White in Central Park is just the beginning. To find out more about Magic in the Trees Foundation or to donate, please visit magicinthetrees.org.
