Maine’s Robin Hood Camp now proud to be the most culturally diverse children’s summer camp on the planet.
According to Robin Hood Camp, with campers from a total of more than 40 countries now regularly attending each year, Robin Hood Camp in Maine has become a model summer camp for families valuing the educational benefits of experiencing cultural diversity. As such, Robin Hood Camp is today proud to be the most culturally diverse summer camp in the world, according to its director.
“We’ve become the world’s number one summer camp for families valuing the educational benefits of experiencing cultural diversity,” says Robin Hood Camp director, Rick Littlefield, “and we’re now the most culturally diverse children’s summer camp on the planet.”
Incredibly, Robin Hood Camp is also fast approaching 100 years of only two generations of organization leadership and ownership, between current director Rick Littlefield and his father before him. That’s according to the supervised summertime program for children, based in Brooksville, Maine.
Bordering both ocean and freshwater, Robin Hood Camp is also the only summer camp remaining in the U.S. able to make such a claim. Activities run on Robin Hood Camp’s lakeside include canoeing and fishing. In contrast, oceanside experiences include day sailing, whale watching expeditions, island camping, and marine biology, according to Robin Hood Camp’s promotional literature.
The co-education international camp currently attracts campers from in excess of 40 countries from right around the globe. Now touted to be the most culturally diverse summer camp in the world, Rick Littlefield and Robin Hood Camp report that learning to become both adaptive and comfortable with a wide range of people and experiences has never been more critical.
Robin Hood Camp believes that becoming adaptive and comfortable in this manner is now a fundamental skill, in fact, in order to later achieve success in a rapidly changing world. Maine-based Robin Hood Camp, therefore, aims to offer a unique opportunity for children from across the U.S. and around the world to see the planet through what Robin Hood Camp calls a wider prism than their more provincial, more limited day-to-day perspective.
Under director Rick Littlefield, Robin Hood Camp offers individual sports, team sports, trips and excursions, art, music, performing arts, and more. “Also on offer,” adds Littlefield, “are dedicated tennis, squash, soccer, waterskiing, and wakeboarding academies.”
Presiding over Robin Hood Camp since 1960 in his capacity as camper, counselor, and director, Rick Littlefield has been the owner of Robin Hood Camp since 1985.
“Guiding the successful evolution of Robin Hood Camp in this time from an all-boys camp to the co-ed international camp with campers from more than 40 countries around the world that it is today,” adds Littlefield, wrapping up, “Robin Hood Camp is now proud to be the most culturally diverse summer camp in the world.”
