leadership retreat weekend group shot

Leadership Retreat 2019

On Thursday, June 6th, Moorelands Kids took 52 kids from our after-school LED and VITAL youth leadership programs on an adventure to Moorelands Camp for their first taste of the Canadian wilderness on the Leadership Retreat 2019!

The Leadership Retreat is an opportunity for all program participants across our four difference programs (three LED locations and one VITAL) to come together and explore challenges, consolidate leadership learnings and expand their personal networks and community connections.

Although there were *a few* bugs (!!!!) it was an amazing weekend, with so much fun and learning. Some highlights were participants pushing past their comfort zone and working together on the ropes course, setting goals and succeeding in archery, using all their leadership learnings to take part in the LED challenge (congrats to the Seabears cabin for winning!) and of course, cheering on the Raptors on the Friday evening of the leadership retreat from the dining all!

We’re so glad to have gone on this journey with our participants and wish them the best summer break. We hope that this taste of nature has whet their appetite for more outdoor, active fun in the future… and we’ll be seeing some of you up at camp this summer! Until then, enjoy the pics…

An Update from Lynda on COVID-19

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and public health advice to stay at home, Moorelands Kids’ office staff are working remotely and our office will be virtual until June 8th. Staff members are available by email or phone. Please visit our contact page to get in touch via email or our staff directory for a list of phone numbers.

On Tuesday, May 19th, the Government of Ontario announced that overnight camps must remain closed throughout the summer. While we are so sad that Moorelands Camp will not be able to run as usual this year, this news was not unexpected and we understand this decision: the safety of our campers and staff is always our first priority. We are refunding all camp deposits/fees already paid. Details have been emailed to registered camper families.

But we do have some good news! In anticipation of this announcement, we had already made extensive plans for a fun virtual camp experience and we’ll be Sending Camp to Kids this summer! More details coming soon including how to apply starting May 25th!

We commit to maintaining our beautiful camp property. We will continue to do everything we need to do to make sure that we can be at camp next year and for many more years to come! That’s why we need your support now more than ever. If you would like to make a donation, please click here or call: 416-466-9987 ext. 309.

New Virtual Programs Launch!

We're excited to launch virtual leadership programs while TDSB schools are closed. Check them out here: Virtual Programs. We'll be making announcements soon about our new Virtual Camp for summer 2020. Stay tuned!

If you need information on COVID-19 or health advice, please visit Toronto Public Health’s website. Moorelands Kids will continue to post updates about our services as the situation evolves.

Stay safe and healthy,

Lynda Tilley, Executive Director | Moorelands Kids
