Robin Hood Camp
70 Robin Hood Rd., Brooksville
There are a lot of great sleepaway camps in Maine. One thing that’s cool about Robin Hood, though, is that it’s both lake- and oceanside. So for kids who love to be in the water, it’s ideal. Their water activities include but are not limited to ocean yachting, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing, and even scuba diving. (Yes, it is still Maine—but kids twelve and up can register in advance to get scuba certified, which is pretty rad.) There are also plenty of land activities happening here, too, like golf, tennis, squash, and soccer, along with a big arts program that includes dance, drama, singing. Also worth noting: Campers are interviewed before being accepted to Robin Hood (to ensure a happy fit), and the camp is electronics-free. Sessions are two, four, or eight weeks long, for campers eight to fourteen years old.
