New Skills for a New Year!

Moorelands Kids’ programs empower children and youth to transform their lives with new skills, new experiences and a new outlook. Your support has a long-lasting impact on the lives of some of Toronto’s most vulnerable kids. But don’t just take our word for it; discover what our participants say they’ve learned at Moorelands and how it’s transformed them.

Listen to our kids… THIS is what transformation looks like!

New Skills: RESPECT

“Because of BLAST, I’m more confident than before and more kind and respectful.” Sayeed, age 9, BLAST participant.


“The canoe trip was my favourite part of ACE! I didn’t just learn to canoe, what I learned at Moorelands is that we should be positive in any situation wherever you are.”  Eric, age 15, ACE camper.


“I plan on using my skills outside of Moorelands. They will help me to be more organized and responsible. Also, they’ll help with working together at school.” Jameela, age 15, VITAL participant.

New Skills: TEAMWORK

“Learning skills at camp about leadership teaches us how to work with others and show compassion in everyday life.”  Sam, age 13, Moorelands camper


“What I learned at camp can help me in various large environments such as school where I can learn to speak my mind. I feel able to go back to Toronto and be myself!” Carly, age 16, SALT camper.

Your support makes this growth and transformation possible!

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
