PLEASE JOIN ME: GIVE THREE OR MORE CHILDREN-IN-NEED A SUMMER THAT CAN CHANGE THEIR FUTURE…
I have recently joined the board of an incredible organization called Moorelands Kids.
Moorelands Kids’ is built on the foundation that every child, regardless of their economic circumstances, has the right to succeed in life. This purpose is brought to life by providing kids from Toronto who face economic barriers with the opportunity to spend a week at Moorelands Camp, forming friendships and memories, surrounded by the beauty of Kawagama Lake, as they have been doing for over 105 years. Moorelands Kids is the only overnight camp in Toronto Area where 100% of the campers require, and receive partial or full financial aid in order to participate.
Building skills and forming friendships in a safe and glorious natural setting is a wonderful gift. As we make our own summer plans, I hope you will join me to bring the joys, friendships, and life lessons of summer camp to Toronto kids facing economic barriers.
It’s been a very long and challenging few months for all of us and the children need connection and community now more than ever. It costs $1650 to send a kid to camp but any amount you choose to give will make a difference.
With much appreciation,
From the hot city streets to Moorelands Camp!
Tucked away on 45 acres of sandy beaches and dense forests, accessible only by boat, is Moorelands Camp. A gem in the Algonquin Highlands, each summer our summer camp welcomes 700 children and youth from some of the poorest neighbourhoods in Toronto.
Swimming, canoeing, music, kayaking, archery, ropes courses, arts and crafts and overnight tripping… the spirit of the wilderness! And build into all this fun are character and leadership lessons – communication, teamwork, problem solving and goal setting – the development of skills necessary for life success!
Staff care deeply about the campers, supporting them as they practise positive interactions with each other and with adults, and celebrating their achievements. Campers return home bursting with great stories of their personal accomplishments, new leadership skills and wonderful memories.
