Scuba diving at Robin Hood Camp

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:

  • The minimum age is 12 years old.
  • Between three to five entire days are required to complete the class and participants do not sign up for any other activities.
  • Mandatory online course (available in the camper’s native language) must be completed prior to arriving at camp.
  • The cost is $575 (payable to Robin Hood Camp) plus $175 for the online course. Textbooks, materials, rental of scuba equipment and wetsuit are included in fees.

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.

Happy Birthday to our campers who have birthdays in March, April and May 2019!

Pickleball Comes to Robin Hood

Robin Littlefield mastering the art of Pickleball.

After being introduced to and playing Pickleball over Thanksgiving at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs I am enthusiastic to announce we will be adding Pickleball to our afternoon activities and campfire program in 2019. Easy to learn, quick to set up and tremendously fun, there is no doubt Pickleball will become a popular addition at Robin Hood in a hurry. This paddle sport is a cross between Tennis and Paddle Ball. Three Pickleball courts can fit on one Tennis court.

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?

We kicked off our world reunion party season tour Sunday, November 11 in New York City and hosted a lively Miami Bowling and Sushi Reunion on December 2. Next up: NYC Camper’s Council Reunion, NYC Annual Skating Party, and planned Camper Reunions in Bogota, Sao Paulo, London, Paris, Gstaad, Monaco, and Madrid!

NYC Camper Reunion Bowling Party

New York City Bowling Reunion

I wish to thank the following campers and staff for making the NYC Bowling Reunion party especially fun: Jon Pelz, Pablo Navarro, James Danziger, Malachy Guzman, Teddy Nelson, Sebastian Finger, Xander Ferguson, Somers Harvey, Gabby Ostad, Cole and Luke Lehman, William Leon, Carlos & Sebastian Lopez, Nick Aston, and Declan Hart-Syed. I hope I didn’t leave anybody out! It was awesome to see RH white hoodies on Somers, Malachy, Teddy, James, Pablo, Carlos and Sebastian. Even better I was proud to see the warm and welcoming greetings many veteran campers extended to the new campers.

Miami Camper Reunion Bowling and Sushi Party

Ricky and Cami Alzetta, Thomas and Nicholas Avellan, Ale Elawa, Lucas Velarde, Olivia Torres and Juan de Fex at the Miami Bowling Reunion.

In 85 degree Miami heat and humidity on December 2, Ale Elwaw masterfully bowled his way to victory in a tight battle with Andres Alvarez to win a lobster dinner. Cami Alzetta, Olivia Torres, Ricky and Felix Oriol all wore RH uniform hoodies and earned lobster dinners this summer. Ricky Alzetta earned special recognition for his impressive display of sushi eating skills! I have never seen any person eat so much sushi so quickly in my lifetime. For Ricky’s remarkable performance he will be taken for a special Sushi dinner at Shimbashi in Ellsworth this summer.

Thank you also to Lucas Velarde, Juan Felipe de Fex, Thomas and Nicholas Avellan, and Jake Meyer who all made the effort to attend the reunion. I also had the pleasure to see the famously talkative Jack Dodds at his house in Coral Gables. Ricky and Felix Oriol won the Long Distance (and Persistence) Award for driving the farthest for the reunion and earned lobsters for their efforts.

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
