First Annual Festi-fall Brings Campers Together in the City

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!

We are planning similar seasonal events. Preparations for “Ring in Spring!” on April 27th are already underway – click here to sign up to volunteer! 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.” Craig, age 10
