bernice-1970s
Bernice Cote passed away recently after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 81. For close to 30 years Bernice was the heart and soul of Robin Hood. She was our Enrollment Director, the loyal right hand person and confidante to my father and myself, the calming voice of reassurance to thousands of anxious parents and campers, camp humorist, and a second mother to me.

Eulogies risk lapsing into the realm of embellished virtues, but not this one. I have not encountered a warmer, more loving soul than Mrs. Cote. Unselfish to a fault, non-judgmental, loyal, kind, thoughtful, uncomplaining, and full of unconditional love for her children, family, and those she cared about. Bernice was a positive role model and a bedrock of stability. She inspired me to want to be a better man and to become the best camp Director I can be. There was a playful joyfulness to Mrs. Cote that somehow found humor in most everything. If you wanted to feel better about life, just hang around Bernice for a while. She laughed easily and often and enjoyed her own company and sense of humor as much as we all did.

When driving to and from Maine frequently while living in the Boston area I would often drop by to say hello briefly, and more often than not, found myself sitting at Bernice’s kitchen table in N. Reading eating homemade pie or an improvised meal thanks to her perpetual hospitality. During the many summers Bernice lived at Top Notch, Robin or I would conveniently leave a container of fresh blueberries or a bowl of apples on the kitchen counter knowing that within a matter of hours a warm blueberry or apple pie would magically appear thanks to Bernice.

When our daughters Tanya, Jasmin, Camille, and Annalee were little and it was bath or bed time at Top Notch, Robin and I would more often than not hear giggles and laughter coming from Bernice’s room downstairs and we would find them lying comfortably on Bernice’s bed watching the Red Sox on television or being read to. We knew where to find the girls and it was difficult to tear them away from “Aunt Bernicey”.

Bernice loved Maine and Robin Hood, and Robin Hood and I loved Bernice. We invite you to attend a memorial service for Mrs. Cote at the outdoor Robin Hood Chapel in Maine, most likely Saturday July 29 at 1:30 pm. It was her wish to have a brief service at camp with a few campers in attendance. Our most recent girls cabin was named “Bernice” in her honor 4 years ago and a camper scholarship will be given annually in her name. We miss you Bernice but you will not be forgotten.

With Much Love,
Rick Littlefield

The last opportunity to take advantage of our enrollment tuition discounts begins Dec. 1 and ends Jan. 31.  In order to guarantee a place for your camper and avoid the possibility of being wait-listed, we strongly encourage December and January enrollment. December/January Rates will be posted on website on December 1.

Two financial options to consider:

  1. Enroll by January 31 – and receive a tuition discount up to $600 if both the registration fee and tuition are paid in full.  All funds paid in advance are 100% refundable until April 1, 2017, if you withdraw for any reason.
  2. Enroll and submit only the $500 registration fee.  This will hold a place for your child.  The tuition balance will be due by April 1, 2017, at the full tuition rate.  The registration fee is also 100% refundable until April 1 if you need to withdraw for any reason.

The first 25 campers to enroll under the New Year Discounts win TWO of our new RH magnetic bumper stickers!

Hameed Ahmed

Great news! Harvard Men’s & Women’s Squash Coach Hameed Ahmed has officially signed on to run our 3rd season of Squash Academy for two weeks July 2- July 15. Harvard won both Men’s (2014) and Women’s (2015) National Championship as well as three Ivy League titles. Hameed has coached more than 20 All American college Squash players in his career.

As a player, Hameed was seven-time National Champion of Finland, held a #8 European Ranking, and was #18 in the world. Most important, Hameed is among the greatest role models, superior coaches, and nicest people I have had the pleasure to work with in my career. In Hameed’s spare time he is working on his MBA degree at Harvard. We are blessed to have him with us. -Rick Littlefield

girls-cabin-foundation

Construction is underway on a new girls’ cabin to be completed by the end of the year with luck. Nella will be our roomiest and best girls’ cabin ever built at Robin Hood. It will be two feet wider than any other girls’ cabin so it should be, and feel, more spacious and also have more floor space down the center aisle. The bathroom will be completely tiled and have sinks and power outlets both inside and outside the bathroom. The windows will be slightly bigger, and the exterior walls will have log cabin siding installed.

We will accept the same number of girl campers as last summer so the new cabin will help to alleviate overcrowding during peak weeks.

We promise to send you progress photos as construction continues. As you will see from the drone aerial photograph the cabin location is just above Inpost and across from Thames.

2016 New York Bowling Reunion

Congratulations to Pablo Navarro, Anna Schnieders, and Teddy Nelson for winning lobster or steak dinners this summer for their bowling scores at the New York Camper Bowling Reunion Sunday November 6! Alistair Schnieders also earned a loyalty award of a lobster or steak dinner by appearing in full RH uniform complete with shorts (impressive in November), t-shirt and hoodie. Thanks also go to Arthur Schnieders, Malachy Guzman, and Xander Ferguson who showed up proudly wearing their RH hoodies; Teddy Nelson, who wore six green and red RH wrist bands; alumnus Robyn Assile Ziemba (one of the very first girls to attend RH as a camper), who arrived with daughter Leyla and son Zachary, and husband John; and future camper Christian Anderson, who earned the long distance award for taking the train in from Princeton, NJ. Also great to see squash star Toby Goldston. The NYC Marathon suppressed our Upper East side and CT camper attendance due to major street closings but those who came made up for this with their enthusiasm. Thanks for coming!

Moomba says “Look at me sparkle!”

The new Moomba is here!

Take a look at the pictures of our shiny, sparkly brand new Wakeboard/ Wakesurf boat that arrived at camp last week looking eager to hit the water in June 2017. The Moomba is specially rigged for use with Wakesurfing, the fastest growing water sport.

Moomba is begging you to come aboard.
