PLEASE JOIN ME: GIVE A CHILD-IN-NEED A SUMMER THAT CAN CHANGE THEIR FUTURE…
This summer, I’m raising money for a cause that’s close to my heart: sending kids to Moorelands Camp.
Did you know that 1/4 of Toronto kids are living in poverty?
For these kids, the summer ahead won’t be filled with fun, new experiences or nature adventures. They won’t have the chance to learn and grow in a safe positive setting that teaches them to make good choices and strengthen their skills. I had the benefit of attending summer camp as a kid so I know first-hand the value that camp provides a child.
I am happy to announce that Moorelands Camp will be welcoming kids back to Kawagama Lake, in person. For one week, we lead fun outdoor activities and kids will be able to learn to swim, face their fears on high-ropes and make friends around the campfire. All of our programs are rooted in positive youth development, which encourages kids to foster and practice emotional intelligence, decision making and conflict resolution. Moorelands Kids strives to teach children life skills, so that they can be leaders out in their own communities. Please check out our programs at https://www.moorelands.ca/programs/.
Help me give this amazing opportunity to Toronto kids for whom this experience is out of their reach. Together, we can empower them to transform their lives with new skills, experiences and connections with strong, positive role models.
With Much Appreciation,
From the hot city streets to Moorelands Camp!
Tucked away on 45 acres of sandy beaches and dense forests, accessible only by boat, is Moorelands Camp. A gem in the Algonquin Highlands, each summer our summer camp welcomes 700 children and youth from some of the poorest neighbourhoods in Toronto.
Swimming, canoeing, music, kayaking, archery, ropes courses, arts and crafts and overnight tripping… the spirit of the wilderness! And build into all this fun are character and leadership lessons – communication, teamwork, problem solving and goal setting – the development of skills necessary for life success!
Staff care deeply about the campers, supporting them as they practice positive interactions with each other and with adults, and celebrating their achievements. Campers return home bursting with great stories of their personal accomplishments, new leadership skills and wonderful memories.
