On Saturday, October 20th, 2018, Moorelands Kids held its First Annual Festi-fall for camper families and the impact of Moorelands Camp was clear to see. Two hundred campers, their parents and our AMAZING Moorelands Camp alumni volunteers came together for a delightful afternoon of carnival games—pumpkin curling! Ring toss! Giant Jenga™! A Sully and Gilbert scavenger hunt! Pizza! A spot of square dancing and camp cheers!
These events offer us the chance to connect with families and instill the Moorelands Kids’ Habits & Qualities in our campers throughout the year. At this inaugural Festi-fall, here’s what some of our campers told us about what they learned this summer and also what they hope Santa will bring for Christmas!
“What I like about Moorelands Camp is I like how everybody cooperates and there’s so much fun things to do and I learned that there’s a lot more things about friendship than I thought there was. The thing I would like for Christmas is a Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn!”–Ayesha, age 8
“I love Moorelands Camp because we play so many fun games. The MAPs(Moorelands Kids Activity Picks) are so cool and the food is awesome! I can’t wait for Christmas… I really hope I get a robot! ”– Bilal, age 9
“This summer at camp I learned how to swim—I learned how to swim if your feet can’t touch the bottom! I want for Christmas a dog…or even a toy dog!”– Alisha, age 8
“There is great staff at Moorelands Kids and that’s why I like it so much. The things that Fisher says at lunch are kinda funny but you also learn stuff too. I’m really looking forward to Christmas. I don’t know what I’m going to get, but I’m really excited to see all my family and just being together.” “I love Moorelands Camp because we play so many fun games. The MAPs(Moorelands Kids Activity Picks) are so cool and the food is awesome! I can’t wait for Christmas… I really hope I get a robot! ”– Craig, age 10
