Director's Message

principal

Sari & Howie Grossinger, Owners/Directors

Sending your child to summer camp is an important decision. We believe becoming more familiar with the leadership of camp will help you arrive at your decision more comfortably. Camp Owners and Directors Sari and Howie Grossinger have each been on staff at Robin Hood for over 20 years. Their involvement in camp is a labour of love. Married for 21 years, Sari and Howie are the parents of 3 children (Jordanna 19, Cole 16 and Zane 12). Dedicated full time to camp, both Sari and Howie have professional backgrounds working with young people. Sari is a paediatric Occupational Therapist and plays a key role in meeting the needs of all of our campers and their families. By providing her personal attention to issues related to registration, grouping and problem solving, Sari forms the link between camp and home. Her leadership in coordinating our inclusion program for campers and staff with special needs has earned Robin Hood its reputation as a place for supportive and inclusive camping. Howie, a former high school teacher, coordinates the program at Robin Hood, and hires our qualified staff. From the development of creative activities, to training our staff, to leading our famous flagpole events, Howie is well known to all of our campers, counsellors and parents.

Stories & Testimonials

Home & Away

Home & Away is a combined day and overnight camp experience. Campers in this program begin at Camp Robin Hood and then travel with their counsellors and cabin-mates to Camp Walden. Why should I consider Home & Away? This program is suited for campers being introduced to overnight camping for the first time; those who have commitments in the city; those who appreciate the security of travelling with a group and those who find making adjustments difficult. The program is designed for boys & girls who are currently in grades 2 and older. About Camp Walden: Set over 750 acres including a private lake, Walden’s activities aim to provide the perfect venue for the formation of a tightly bonded community. Sports, Camping, Waterfront, Theatre and Visual Arts, and camp wide programs fill a camper's day. Well-ventilated and spacious cabins, a large dining hall, and a fully equipped Health Centre are the facilities with which we endeavour to help campers feel comfortable to explore the full camp experience. Learn more about Camp Walden by visiting www.campwalden.ca. About Madawaska All-Sport: The Madawaska All-Sport program, is the perfect program for any athlete. Madawaska camps has been operating its volleyball camp for over 30 years at Camp Walden. As part of the Robin Hood Camps family, Madawaska now has the year-round organizational and program support of Howie & Sari Grossinger and Sol Birenbaum, the owners of Camp Walden. By utilizing all of the land and sports facilities that Walden has to offer, this program is ideal for any sports enthusiast. Learn more about Madawaska Camps by visitng www.madawaskacamps.com.


Robin Hood Sports Academy

At Robin Hood Sports Academy a staff of well-trained, experienced coaches focus on sports in an enjoyable way! Not only do they emphasize skill development, but also making sure the outcomes reflect cooperation, tolerance and the ability to be a successful team player. Campers develop their skills in an All-Sport program including: Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Tennis and Floor Hockey, Golf, Football, Volleyball and more! To complete this amazing sports experience, all campers participate in a daily recreational swim and weekly game days!


Camp Robin Hood

The Camp Robin Hood program allows campers to experience a wide variety of activities during their stay at camp. Under the supervision of 2 well-trained counsellors, campers will participate in both cabin and specialty activities. During specialty activities, campers will be instructed by expert staff who have planned unique programs that enhance the camp experience. In addition to our daily program which includes twice daily swim instruction, campers may also participate in some of our optional programs such as Extended Days (Juniors), overnights (Intermediates and Seniors) or 3 day trips (Seniors) to Camp Walden, our overnight camp. Munchies & Leppies (Pre-senior Kindergarten): These pre-schoolers get extra special care; after all, this is a formative time for these campers and individual attention goes a long way towards the development of good values. That is why our ratio of staff to campers in this area is approximately 1 to 3. These campers are offered almost every camp program, including canoe, that is offered to our older campers. Their programs are adjusted according to the attention span and the abilities of these young campers. Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors (Completed SK- Grade 7): Along with twice daily swim instruction, our counsellors make certain that our campers are exposed to the full range of programs we have to offer. The counsellors get to know their campers and their needs and design their program to meet those needs. As well, our Intermediate and Senior Campers can make individual program choices through Hobby Hubs (Intermediates) and Options (Seniors), which allow them to focus on specific activities that they enjoy doing more often. The Leadership Training Program: (Completed Grades 8 and 9): Our experience indicates that a truly effective Leadership Training Program strives to develop knowledge and skills through the presentation of theory and the involvement of hands-on learning. Participation in regularly scheduled placements in a variety of areas at camp plays an important role as well. We believe that our LITs (14 year olds) and our CITs (15 year olds) need to understand age characteristics, age appropriate activities, behaviour management techniques and motivational approaches to be successful. A mandatory 3 day retreat early in the summer, allow us to reach our program objectives. We feel that the core elements of our program can be covered in 6 weeks. However, all LITs and CITs can benefit from a full 8 week program where they choose their own area of focus in the last 2 weeks of camp.
