Message from Rick Littlefield

Topping the list of memorable moments of RH 2018 has to be the morning roundup marriage proposal by Jon Pelz to Hayley Sperring. The camp erupted as it became clear what Jon was up to. Congratulations to Jon & Hayley. I will also remember the inspiring singing performances of Alva and Arthur Fink, Carlos “Santana” Morales’ behind the head guitar riffs, the voices of Mitch Hunt, Tabitha Ley-Smith and Hayley Morgan, Leland Fraser’s legendary hair flip at the dances, 200 campers completing the 8.2 miles Around the Lake Challenge, 32 campers completing the grueling 13 hour Bagaduce River Canoe Challenge, more than 125 completing the Across the Lake Swim, 10 campers completing the Biathlon Across the Lake Swim and Around the Lake Run. Etched in my mind are the presence of World Champion Brazilian Wakesurfer Anne Prochaska, Champion Nghia Tran, Harvard Squash Coach Hameed Ahmed, World Champion Wakeboarder Dean Lavelle, Tennis Pro Arpan Trivedi, Soccer Coach Bruce Groshong, the inspiring energy of Archery champion Paulina Vazquez, and the photography and videography talents Dani Valle and Harvey Woods. My apologies to the other 450 people not mentioned.

Now on to 2019! Almost 200 campers are already enrolled. Come join them!

–Rick Littlefield

What’s New for 2019!

We do our best to improve Robin Hood each and every year and the following enhancements are being made in direct response to requests from campers on the Camper Questionnaire. Power to the campers!

Circus Program is Expanding


You asked and we listened – your camper questionnaires revealed many requests for a larger program. This Fall we will be kicking off a talent search for more Circus counselors to accommodate the program’s popularity.

Fitness Training Academy


Trainer Calvin Patterson is eager to not only run two Intensive Training Academies in 2019, but to also re–locate the Fitness closer to the Squash & Fencing Pavillion. Exact dates and details to come.
 

Outpost Improvements


The Outpost used to be the absolute favorite camper cabin to live in and we are close to receiving a formal permit from our town to help enhance the Outpost experience. We are planning to install a bathroom inside the Outpost and install a separate septic field after 20 plus years of trying to get approval. The Outpost will also have their own ping-pong table, foosball table, and a more direct path to the lake leading to the Wakeboard dock to enjoy swimming at night off the dock.

Fewer Roundups

By popular demand we will be dropping one roundup per day from our 2019 daily schedule. Where possible, we will try to drop a second roundup – except special circumstances like the Friday dance.

Sailing Improvements

We have purchased a second 13’ Boston Whaler Dauntless sailing chase boat, named “Sputter” to help sailing teaching. We will also will be adding a new fleet of sail boats at the suggestion of Monaco Sailing Champion Anthony Minder. We also be purchasing two RS Quest lake sailing boats. They are at terrific training boat that also has a spinnaker. Sailing was extremely popular at camp last summer– did you know campers earned a total of over 200 stripes in Sailing?

Greens Win the Year!

The closeness of the Green/ Scarlet teams scores were so close that it required multiple recounts to determine the winner.  Greens won Nottingham Fair Day and this proved to be the difference maker. Congratulations to Greens Captains Faaris Zuberi and Majo Colmenarez and Lieutenants Emel Zuberi, Anis Basini, Ava Kilmurray, Andreas Elstrom, Leyla Ziemba and Winslow Van Vacas.

Congratulations also to Scarlets Captains Ben Steiner and Rita Grinfeder, as well as Lieutenants Alejandro Alvarez, Fifi Steiner, Jeronimo Marsili, Adriana Pastor, Dante Marsili, and Hannah Berry. -Rick Littlefield

Littlefields buy historic Oakland House Inn & Cottages

The Oakland House

We are thrilled to announce that in mid-January we purchased Robin Hood’s abutting property on the ocean, the historic Oakland House Inn, restaurant and seaside cottages. The Oakland House is literally walking distance from Robin Hood, and by far the most convenient option for camp families looking for lodging when they are bringing children to and from camp.

Due to the limited number of cottages available weekends are expected to fill up quickly and families with interest are urged to act quickly.  Reservations are made directly through the Oakland House website:  www.OaklandHouse.com.  You may contact our general manager Heather Wren directly at:  relax@oaklandhouse.com.  She can help you determine the appropriate cottage for your needs. There is a two night minimum requirement to stay in one of our one and two bedroom cottages on the ocean and we encourage longer stays for parents and families to enjoy and discover the charm of our part of Maine.

The Oakland House will operate as a resort with activities for families, including watersports such as kayaking, canoeing, sailing, stand up paddle boarding, as well as horseback riding, guided hikes and powerboat excursions out to the islands of Penobscot Bay.  While Robin Hood families will enjoy many of the same activities as campers, the Oakland House will be a separate entity and reservations and excursions must be booked separately. For years parents have asked us: “Why don’t you have a camp for adults too?” Here’s your chance!

The land has been a working property within the extended Littlefield family for seven generations and was a part of a colonial grant by King George III in 1763. At its peak The Oakland House welcomed vacationers from the around the world, hosted weddings and reunions and was known for its country breakfasts and creative dinners. We plan to restore the inn, re-open the restaurant and welcome families to book long and short-term stays in the oceanside cottages as early as this summer. More information will follow soon.

–Rick and Robin Littlefield

Update: What’s New for Summer 2018

Normally our “what’s new for next summer” article is strictly an inventory of new toys for campers to anticipate. This year we are also excited about some special events days we know you will enjoy:

Backwards Day (Week 2): Start the day with the Goodnight Song, followed by campfire, dinner, swim/shower, activity periods, rest hour, lunch, interests, morning roundup and lastly, breakfast. Wear your uniform backwards, walk around camp backwards!

The new Robin Hood Renaissance Fair will include a Muay Thai tournament and many other, new tournaments!

The Robin Hood Renaissance Fair (Week 3): Tournaments in jousting, sword fighting, log rolling, archery, Muay Thai, swimming, running and fishing contests, a royal banquet where we eat only with hands, court jesters, jugglers, gymnasts, dancers, singers, artists, best costume awards, chess tournament, medieval table tennis tournament (contestants make their own paddles). All this followed by a themed dance.

We are purchasing new golf clubs for next summer.

The New Toys:

For the coming summer we will purchase another waterski boat and build a new waterski dock, add more stand up paddle boards, build a designated fishing dock, expand and re-pave our basketball court, improve our four-square courts, add a new fire pit for s’mores on campfire beach and purchase new golf clubs, more canoes and ocean kayaks.

Campers will have many more opportunities for ocean kayaking next summer.

Improvements to camp property:

We created a new beach and picnic area by the lake between campfire benches and Davis Lodge and landscaped the waterfront.

Oceanside trips program is expanding to include:

Sailing day trips and picnics to Pond Island using our Hobie Cats, Lasers and 420s (weeks 2 and 7, weather-dependent).

An Ocean Kayak & Canoe Day picnic trip to Pond Island (once during the first 3 weeks and once during last 3 weeks).

Ocean Canoe & Kayak Expedition to Bucks Harbor, including lunch.

Ocean swimming in Eggemoggin Reach off the ocean dock beach.

One night ocean cruise campout to Warren Island.
