Activities At Camp
Moorelands Camp provides opportunities for campers to:
- Be physically active
- Choose programs
- Develop character
- Gain leadership skills
- Practice social skills
Our quality programs are based on and support Positive Youth Development. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, arts & crafts, archery, sports and team building exercises are some of the many activities and opportunities offered. Each camper also participates in a daily swimming stroke improvement course. There is also an adventure for every camper. With staff supervision they enjoy a cookout or overnight campout staying in a tent.
Please note: Some activities have skill or age restrictions. Swimming skills will be assessed on the first day of camp. For more information, please click below or see the Parent/Camper Handbook.

Moorelands Camp is a Leadership Skills Development Program!
At camp, we offer a meaningful program focused on developing each camper’s leadership skills. Every day we focus on a different positive leadership habit and quality to develop skills. Through experience-based learning and fun activities, campers learn how to apply each habit and quality to their everyday lives. Our goal is for each camper to return to the city with the skills to be a leader in their home, school, and community.
Our Community Code
- wants everyone at camp to be safe
- provides opportunity for youth to strengthen their knowledge, skills and character
As staff we
- are positive role models
As campers we
- choose our attitudes, actions and behaviour
- respect ourselves, others, our community and the environment
- recognize that there are consequences for our choices
- include everyone and participate
- resolve problems peacefully
Camp programming is designed for group participation and interaction. We do not offer one to one supports for campers. Behaviour that endangers one’s self or others, disrespects the property of others, or requires repeated one-to-one intervention may result in the camper being sent home.
We care for your kids! Health and Safety is #1
Campers need an Ontario Health Card or alternative. Upon arrival, each camper is seen by the camp nurse for a basic health check. All medication is kept in the health centre and is dispensed by Health Care Staff who are at the camp 24 hours a day. All staff are trained in First Aid.
If you currently do not possess an Ontario Health Card or alternate, please contact us before applying to camp.
