About Camp Robin Hood
Set on 180 acres just minutes from New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, Camp Robin Hood is more than just an overnight summer camp—it is a tradition, a legacy, and a home. Since 1927, Robin Hood has provided an encouraging, inviting, and supportive summer environment for our campers. That environment is created in large part by our caring and attentive staff, composed almost entirely of young men and women who grew up as campers in the Robin Hood community. Understanding the enduring positive influence of the Robin Hood experience, our staff members return to camp each summer eager to provide that same experience for our next generation of campers.
It is our responsibility to provide your child with a structured, supportive environment, in which they will develop lasting friendships, gain personal insight into the importance of mutual respect, learn to challenge themselves and grow as they seek out new experiences and gain self-confidence through successes.
“Friends, friends, friends we will always be.” Our campers have been singing these words for over eighty-seven years. We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming your children’s unique voices into the Camp Robin Hood family.

International campers have been a part of the Robin Hood Family since the camp was founded in 1927. They join us from all corners of the world including countries such as; Spain, France, Italy, England, Belgium, Norway, Japan, China, Kuwait, Nigeria, Venezuela, Columbia, Mexico, Canada and more.
Before arriving at camp, all of our international campers are contacted by a returning Robin Hood camper or staff to welcome them to ‘The Realm’ and answer any questions they may have about camp. They also receive a Robin Hood t-shirt which they can wear on the plane (and at camp of course). Once in the US, after clearing Customs and Immigration, they are met by a member of our staff and driven to camp. We have a very diverse staff who speak many languages for those who might have trouble communicating in English.
We allow our international campers to call home upon arrival so their parents know they arrived safely. Parents are also allowed to schedule calls periodically since letters do not always arrive quickly. Families are encouraged to use our Summer Communications System to communicate with their camper by email (Bunk Notes).
Our international campers are integral to what makes Camp Robin Hood such a diverse & special home to all our campers!
