At Robin Hood we pride ourselves on hiring the best staff in the business to make sure your most treasured possessions (those are your children), are taken care of. Our staff is made up of educators, college athletes, coaches, artists, alumni and many other experts dedicated to the success of your camper’s summer. Enjoy a sneak peak of this year’s staff below. We can’t wait to see you all soon for the best summer of our lives!
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!
Bruce 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!
Abram “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/Lacrosse
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!
