Family Camp at Camp Robin Hood

Blog_May_2015_Family_Camp

Family Camp is more than just a weekend away. It’s an opportunity to create lasting memories with family and friends and enjoy many of the traditions and activities of Camp Robin Hood over a long-weekend on beautiful Lake Ossipee. There are so many reasons why Family Camp at Robin Hood is the only way to spend your family vacation!  Great food, fun activities, starry nights and campfires are just some of the reasons to visit us in The Realm.

Here are the Top 5 Reasons to Attend Family Camp 2015…

5. The FOOD!  Lobster by the Lake anyone? Counselors are on hand to help supervise your children.  We have a Parent’s Night Out during family camp where your kids will be off doing evening activities and you’ll be able to create your own CRH memories.

4. Everyone’s a camper during Family Camp!  Activities available include: all water front activities, GaGa, Spinning, Biking, Horseback Riding, Tennis, Riflery, Archery, Arts & Crafts, Woodshop, Ceramics and various Team Sports.  Learn about what’s offered at camp HERE.

3. Chuck will be there! 2015 marks Chuck’s 50th summer at Camp Robin Hood, making him the longest running member of our incredible staff.  Read his thoughts on The Realm HERE.

2. Looking into summer camp for 2016? Families can introduce overnight camp through a fun family vacation.  And unlike the Griswalds, this “park” is open!

And the #1 reason to attend Family Camp 2015 is…

You can invite your friends!  You do not have to have a current camper nor do you need to be a Robin Hood alumnus to participate in Family Camp. What is better than that!  Share your Robin Hood experience and let others experience the “magic in the trees”.

Fill out our Family Camp Reservation Form to reserve your place in Family Camp and ask any questions you might have.  Campers who are currently enrolled in the 2015 season are FREE. Visit our website for more information.

Summer Camp Report – Day Six in the Realm

Our 15 & Under Boys Basketball Team was at the court this morning at 7:30am preparing for our big rival game tomorrow night against West End. The first of two games this summer will be played in “The House,” which is what West End is referred to. All of senior camp will be there cheering on our boys!

After breakfast, three camps came into Robin Hood for a Girls 15 & Under Basketball Tournament. All the courts were in play all day, and three Robin Hood teams were represented in the tournament. Our Saxons and Scribes greeted the guest players, and helped with scoring and refereeing the games. It was a seamless tournament and all the girls played with terrific heart and soul.

The Archers left mid-morning for a climb up Chocorua via the Chapney Falls Trail. After their climb and a picnic lunch, the boys enjoyed a special outing to Ben & Jerry’s to celebrate one of the camper’s birthdays. The group set-up camp outside of North Conway and cooked a hearty dinner over their campfire. We look forward to seeing the boys back in the Realm after breakfast tomorrow.

Squires also enjoyed a day and night in the White Mountain region, leaving camp early this afternoon for a mountain trip and sleepover. These boys climbed Baldface around Emerald Pool, and then headed to their campsite for dinner and sleeping. The group was really excited for their adventure!

At the Robin Hood Stables our riders enjoy both riding and stable management. They help with grooming and feeding the horses, and of course enjoy riding our furry friends. When our horseback riders return to camp, one of the first places they go is to the Stables to see which of their equine friends have returned. Returning this summer are Blue, JD, Gidget, Joey and Lily. New to the Realm this year are Spirit, Rudy, Davinci, Roxy and Aztec.

Those of us in camp tonight enjoyed Nicky’s BBQ chicken dinner, with fresh corn on the cob, homemade potato salad, coleslaw and cornbread. Our vegetarians enjoyed amazing stuffed portabella mushrooms and BBQ Kale! Thanks, Nicky for a delicious finish to the day.

Wishing you all sweet dreams from the Realm.
