Happy Birthday to our campers who have birthdays in October!
No sooner does camp end that we begin plotting and scheming to improve RH for next year. These are some of the projects we are committed to:
-We will add new flooring on three girls cabins.
-Thirteen year old boys will appreciate a large addition currently under construction to Montfichet cabin.
-Two additional Quest 15’ sailboats will be added to the new Quest fleet.
-The Survival Program will be expanded to include a new Wilderness Challenge. Details to follow.
More 2020 program enhancements to be announced soon!
With another successful summer on the lake and by the sea behind us, the following highlights immediately come to mind:
-James Underwood being the first camper to win both legs of our Biathalon Challenge, which starts with the Across the Lake 2.5-mile swim and is followed by the Around the Lake 8.2 mile run. The Biathlete participants compete against fresh runners who did not participate in the swim leg. An astonishing accomplishment! James also conquered the Bagaduce River 12 to 13-hour canoe challenge finishing in record time–close to 11 hours! He also completed the one-day Mt. Katahdin Climb. James is the first camper to win the Robin Hood Cup, Achievement Cup, and Challenge Cup.
-Campers arrived from 42 countries this season, a record number.
-Every morning roundup, humorous cabin chants helped make the meeting entertaining. Plus, many brave and inspirational morning devotionals added meaning.
-World Class Tennis professional Clark Corey helped lead our Tennis program all summer. Clark has trained and certified hundreds of USTA tennis professionals around the world.
-PGA golf professional Dave Deheras, coach at UC Santa Barbara and pro at Hidden Oaks Golf Course in Santa Barbara led our Golf Academies and provided instruction to RH golfers all seven weeks.
-Muay Thai Kickboxing Champion Nghia Tran directed our most popular program for his 17th summer.
-Champion Sailor Anthony Minder energized our Sailing program. Anthony and brother Alex brought back our ocean sailing racing program using our Pearson Ensign and taught a record number of lake sailors.
It was a memorable, remarkable, and gratifying 92th season! -Rick Littlefield

The tennis program at Robin Hood Camp seems to get better and better every year, and the 2019 season is no exception as we welcome elite tennis coach Clark Corey to our team!A native of Columbus, Ohio, Clark has been teaching tennis to some of the best around the world for more than 35 years. He has been the director of tennis at top resorts throughout North America, the Caribbean, Asia and the Middle East, including the five-star Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai and most recently at the JW Marriott Desert Springs resort in Palm Desert, Calif.
He has been a PBI Elite Tennis Professional since 1985 and was named PBI Professional of the Year in 1988. He has also served as a tennis commentator for SBC TV.
We’re beyond thrilled that Clark will direct our tennis program this summer alongside long-time Robin Hood Tennis Director Arpan Trivedi of India.
Speaking of Arpan, he has been earning accolades himself this year for his outstanding tennis work. He was recently selected to the Australian Academy of Tennis Coaches, the leading tennis organization on that continent for more than 25 years. Within his own home country, Arpan has also earned the prestigious PTR India President’s Award. Congratulations Arpan! This summer will mark Arpan’s 13th year at Robin Hood Camp.
Arpan and Clark can’t wait to meet this season’s new campers at Robin Hood. Experienced tennis players are reminded that the intensive Robin Hood Tennis Academy is the best way to sharpen your skills and take your tennis talents to the next level. The Robin Hood Tennis Academy will be held in weeks one (June 23-29), two (June 30 – July 6), three (July 7-13), four (July 14-20) and six (July 28 – August 3).

Two PADI Scuba Certification classes are offered at Robin Hood Camp this summer. Session 1 will be held during Week 3 (Monday, July 8 to Friday, July 12) while Session 2 runs during Week 5 (Monday, July 22 to Friday, July 26).
In making your decision about PADI Scuba Certification class, please consider the following:
Please contact Robin Hood Camp at (831) 659-9143 to reserve a spot for your camper as soon as possible as classes fill up fast. A $100 non-refundable deposit, charged to the credit card on file in your Camp-in-Touch account, is required to reserve a space. The remaining $475 will be charged to your end-of-camp expenses.
Upon successful completion of the class, your camper will receive a PADI certification which is a lifetime certification recognized throughout the world. The program has been growing in popularity with the introduction of the online work prior to the class instruction at camp. It quickens the pace of the class and minimizes the study time during camp.
