The Robin Hood Camp is celebrating the two generational leadership of owner Rick Littlefield and his father. In seven years’ time, 100 years of unbroken father and son leadership and ownership will be achieved. Few if any other camps, businesses or organizations have achieved such a milestone.
Rick Littlefield, Director of the Robin Hood Camp, has worked at the camp in different capacities since 1960. He’s been an owner and director since 1985 and his tenure has seen the continued growth of the organization. Through his leadership, he’s guided the evolution of the Robin Hood Camp from an American All-Boys camp to the co-ed international camp that it is today.
The Robin Hood Camp in Maine is the premier children’s summer camp and is well-known for its scope of activities. The camp’s world-renowned counselors in waterskiing, sailing, soccer and many other activities give children the opportunity to learn from the best. For example, 6-time wakeboard world champion Dean Lavelle currently leads wakeboard activities.
In addition to the myriad of top activities, Robin Hood Camp also offers cultural diversity by accepting children from around the world. This gives kids the opportunity to view the world from a wider perspective. Being able to adapt, work as team and be cognizant of other cultures are critical skills in todays global marketplace. The lessons learned at the Robin Hood Camp can be carried through to adulthood and lead to substantive interpersonal relationships.
Admission and selection procedures at the Robin Hood Camp are administered by Director Rick Littlefield.
