Calling all Moorelanders!
Our alumni have gone on to do some amazing things since leaving Moorelands. Some have even gone full circle and come back following successes elsewhere.

"Moorelands Wilderness Camp is a wonderful place to learn about who you are and how you can grow to meet your full potential. I will never forget the amazing things they taught me about myself and all the hard work put into giving every kid a childhood, thank you all so much."
“Moorelands is like a building, each generation builds on the work of the last. I just want to say Thank You to all those who went before and all those who will come after. You make such a difference in the lives of Toronto kids.”
“Moorelands is about giving kids a safety net and learning to rely on one another. It’s about taking people out of their home environment to show them what’s possible. Moorelands has the ability to show young people how society can work better.”
“As a child, I was able to spend many summers at Moorelands, surrounded by great friends, fun and loving counsellors and of course immersed in nature. I was able to discover myself, my strengths and my weaknesses. I longed to be on the island as soon as the warm weather hit."
“Two weeks at camp is like four months in the city in terms of learning…Moorelands taught me how to have friendships. It’s where I learned to trust, to problem solve, to communicate properly…80% of what I’ve learned, I learned at camp.”
“Moorelands helped me become the person I am today…whenever I look back or think about my time at Moorelands, it always puts a smile on my face.”
“There is no time in my life that I look back on with as much fondness and satisfaction than my years on Lake Kawagama.”
"Moorelands gave me the tools and confidence that I have been using in all aspects of my life, even after I stopped attending camp."
““It was like a dream come true to go to Moorelands Camp and escape from the traffic noise, pollution and congestion…””
