It’s been a wildly different summer for all of us. THANK YOU for standing by our kids during this challenging time. As part of the Send a Kid to Camp (SAK) campaign this year, our growing group of amazing fundraisers wrote letters, sent emails and even held an amazing virtual campfire to raise money to send camp to kids! Thanks to YOUR contributions to the campaign, we were able to send camp to 56 children and keep them connected, resilient and strong! Thank you for sending camp to kids!

“Social distancing has been difficult – the first month was very distressing for the children. They wanted to go out and see their friends but they were also frightened. It was very stressful for me as a single mom, I wasn’t able to go to work and somehow I also had to learn to be a teacher! Moorelands Camp Lead On was really, really helpful. Christine and Victor learned so many things at virtual camp and it instilled a spirit of togetherness even though everyone was separate. Thank you to everyone who supported my family!”Maximilliana Odibo, mother of Moorelands’ campers Christine and Victor
“I will use the habits and qualities I learned like consider and understand others. Like by considering my parents’ feelings when they need help with chores.”Rehan, age 9
“Hi Moorelands, I just wanted to tell my daughter Mel had an amazing time doing your LEDGE summer program and she was very happy programming was still able to on even through Covid 19. I wanted to extend my thanks to the Moorelands family for the grocery card enclosed with our letter. This couldn’t come at a more perfect time as I am completely broke until the 20th and have been having a hard time lately. Now we will be able to go stock our fridge and cupboards thanks to your generosity. Thank you for everything you have done.”Jean, LEDGE camper parent
“I want to just say “thank you so much “🙏 Brian is an active boy. He likes to play any sports and go to Moorelands Camp. But it was different this summer. We had to stay home all day. Sometimes he had stress. But Moorelands Camp Lead On gave him a chance to have fun for a few weeks. He was so happy and he very much enjoyed. He loved it👨💻 Thank you so much for helping us and making him happy!”Hisako, camper parent”
“I participated in the Send a Kid to Camp campaign this year as a writer because as an educator who has worked in priority Toronto communities for more than 10 years, I know the impact that Moorelands Kids’ camp has on the underserved kids in the city. Whether in person on Kawagama Lake or virtually, having access to camp with activities which promote character, collaboration and leadership provides our young people with greater opportunities for success, and of course, life long memories.”Austin Pool
Educator and Director, Moorelands Kids
