All The Fun From Visitors’ Day 2018

It was great to welcome some lovely guests to see all the fun-filled action at Moorelands Camp on July 13th for Visitors’ Day 2018.

As well as getting to meet campers and take a tour of the beautiful camp, some highlights of the day included awarding our partners, Angus Systems, a commitment award for their stalwart support of Moorelands Camp through funding of our outreach program and 22 camperships. There was also a very special tree planting ceremony in memory of former camper, Gordon Tappin.

Thank you to everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules to visit and take in the joy of Moorelands Camp. Photo credit to camp alum, Matthias Flynn.

We believe that all youth have strengths, regardless of their background or life situation.

We believe that children and youth can grow and flourish when their strengths are aligned with the benefits of our intentional, quality programs.

We focus on understanding, educating, and engaging children and youth in productive activities rather than fixing, curing, or treating them.

Moorelands Camp Objectives are to provide:

  • Opportunities for campers to build self-esteem and confidence through fun recreational activities
  • Opportunities for campers to build life skills including problem solving, goal setting, decision making, team work and friend making
  • Opportunities for campers to learn practical camp related skills and experience success
  • Positive role models and opportunities for campers to learn and practice positive character qualities
  • The experience of good relationships with peers and a mentor
  • Positive memories of the camping experience

The Moorelands’ Mission Statement

At Moorelands, we recognize the inherent value of all children and youth. We work with Toronto’s children and youth affected by poverty, to provide them with positive and fun experiences to help strengthen their confidence, competence and character.

Jays Care BLAST Baseball Celebration Day

Jays Care BLAST Baseball Celebration Day!

Our awesome partners, the Jays Care Foundation, have partnered with us this past year to build our BLAST kids’ confidence and life-skills through baseball! On Sunday, May 20th, they invited every BLAST participant and their families out to watch the Toronto Blue Jays play a thrilling game at the Roger’s Centre! Jays Care threw our kids a super fun party with face painting, poster-making, snacks, and games. The winners of the Jays Care Baseball Day Tournament even got to sit in the Jays Care Clubhouse!!! We’re so grateful for this opportunity – it was the best day ever!

Jays Care’s Amazing Support

The day was a celebration of the baseball fun and new learnings that BLAST kids have experienced this year thanks to Jays Care’s support. And what a year it’s been! Jays Care have been amazing partner’s – from training Moorelands’ staff in best practices that get kids moving to throwing baseball workshops for our kids to hosting the super fun BLAST Baseball Tournament in Flemingdon Park – it’s been such a great experience for all our unstoppable kids!

Before taking part in the baseball program at BLAST, 60% of our participants had never played baseball before. And after taking part in all the fun baseball skills workshops hosted by Jays Care, 71% of our kids say they feel more confident – not just in their ability to play the sport, but in life in general!

Here’s why BLAST kids say that playing baseball makes them feel more confident…

“Baseball opens my inside awesomeness!” Rikesh, age 8.

“I feel more confident because it showed my different abilities and strengths.” Aria, age 10.

“It makes me feel more confident because I know that each time I will get better and better. Plus, it’s one of my favourite things to play with my family. Baseball makes me happy and I would love to play some more after the tournament too. P.S. with the help of my dad I think I can get more skills!” Saif, age 10

“I learned if I believe in myself I can do it and I can play it confidently.” Reem, age 9.

THANK YOU Jays Care for partnering with Moorelands and showing our unstoppable kids how awesome they can be!

Bay St Volleyball 2018

Bay Street Volleyball Tournament 2018

The Annual Bay Street Volleyball Tournament, hosted by McCarthy Tétrault, took place on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at Ashbridges Bay – and it was such a fantastic day!

Organized by McCarthy Tétrault’s articling students, 19 Toronto law firms took part in the event to support Toronto kids affected by poverty through Moorelands Camp! It was so great to see summer students from all the different firms come out to compete and show off their beach volleyball skills. The event was SO much fun and we are extremely grateful to have been chosen as this year’s beneficiary. Although the final fundraising totals are not yet in, the estimated amount raised so far is a whopping $20,000!!!! Thank you so much to everyone at McCarthy Tétrault and to all the law firms who took part and generously supported Moorelands’ kids.

Check out the pics below!

Ps. It’s not too late to make a donation to Moorelands Camp in support of one of the law firms that took part in Wednesday’s tournament. Click the button below – thank you!
