Robin Hood Country Day School is a world for children, a world to explore, to enjoy, to learn
new skills and to make new and lasting friendships in an atmosphere free from tension. Children are already under
too much stress during the regular school year. The summer is a time to relax and to enjoy. The proof of the success
of our outlook can be seen each summer in the smiling and glowing faces of the children who come back to Robin Hood
year after year.
We realize it is difficult for parents to select one camp over another. What makes Robin Hood
different? Why should you select Robin Hood for your child?
Our campus is one of the most beautiful
on Long Island. Many parents over the years have remarked "it looks just like a sleep-away camp".
We have three beautiful heated swimming
pools, each designed for a specific age group. Additionally three great water slides are installed. Depending upon
swimming ability as measured by American Red Cross swim skills children will advance to the pool most compatible
with their swimming ability.
We adjoin the campus of C.W. Post
College. This gives us the use, by agreement with C.W. Post, of an additional ten acres of athletic fields, which
added to our own magnificent fifteen acres gives us twenty-five acres for children to spread out and to enjoy playing
soccer and baseball on large and safe playing fields.
Our sports camp program is exciting
Our boys and girls in grades four
and above will go on a three day trip to Club Getaway in Kent, Connecticut, a beautiful sleep-away camp.
addition to the regular day camp program, our campers
enjoy special events such as Walt Disney Day, Crazy
Hat Day, Circus Theme Day, Carnival Days and Cookout
Our campers in grades three and up
are eligible for our club program where they elect one of their periods. Some of the electives are: baseball, soccer,
basketball, arts & crafts, climbing wall, science and rocketry.
We have sports specialists in baseball,
basketball, soccer, tennis, mini-tennis and street hockey.
On rainy days special trips out of
camp are planned. In addition we use our beautiful gym equipped with climbing wall & walled soccer court, and
the East Coast Athletic Club located in nearby Port Washington. At East Coast we use the following facilities: a
beautiful indoor, heated swimming pool, a large gymnasium for basketball and other games, a specially designed facility
which enables the children to exercise in a very creative and fun way.
The boys and girls in grade six and
above (our seniors) participate in an Optional Choice program which is unique to Robin Hood. The children,
every two weeks, specialize in one or more of these activities, sailing, tennis, golf, racquetball, and horseback
Finally, there is a certain
spirit and feeling at Robin Hood which is impossible to convey in words. Parents see it when they visit. Our
mature professional staff of teachers and specialists make this all possible. Parents love and praise our
experienced and caring staff.
