You can empower a child to transform their life.
This summer, our beautiful site on Kawagama Lake will ring out with the sound of children’s laughter. Moorelands Camp is a highly subsidized leadership development program for youth from Grade 3 to Grade 8, and in high school. At camp, kids develop skills and practise leadership through intentional programming and fun outdoor activities like swimming lessons, archery, canoeing and high ropes! These are experiences that will build their resilience, strengthen their well-being and nurture their physical and mental health.
When you fundraise on behalf of, or donate to, Moorelands Kids’ Send a Kid to Camp (SAK) Campaign, you help provide unforgettable summer experiences to kids in our community affected by poverty.
In 2022, our generous SAK donors and fundraisers rallied to send 81 kids to camp. Together, we can provide kids with another summer of learning, leadership, friendship and fun!
Camp is a summer experience that all kids deserve.
But not all children from low-income households can access the wilderness we are so proud of in Canada.

What does it cost to send a kid to camp?
We offer a safe space where children will connect with friends and trusted mentors, experience new and exciting outdoor activities, and develop lasting leadership tools. It costs $1,650 to send one kid to camp for a week this summer, and every contribution counts. Your investment provides extensive training for staff, nutritional and delicious food, safe and clean facilities, program equipment, transportation and more for a kid at Moorelands Camp!
Ways to Make an Impact
You can help send kids to camp by hosting your own fundraiser! Gather your friends, family or co-workers for a barbeque, create a social media event or set up a donation fund in honour of a birthday or special event—the possibilities are endless!

Check out these fundraising ideas, or get inspired by reading about some of last year’s fundraisers.
What is more camp nostalgic than sending letters to your friends and family? You can join our team of ‘writers’ (emails also work!) who reach out to their networks every spring to share our mission and seek support for kids in our community. We can help make this process easy for you by providing a letter template, mailing out your letters for you and even letting you know when someone donated because of your letter so you can thank them. They will also receive a hand-written thank you from one of the staff up at Moorelands Camp!
