If you went to camp as a child, you know its transformative powers: living with new friends, testing your limits by learning new skills, singing by a campfire, and sleeping under the stars.
Moorelands has 600 kids waiting in anticipation to pack their bags for summer camp. Many come from single-parent homes with an annual income of less than $16,000. Without Moorelands, a camp experience for them is simply out of reach.
Join us on June 5th for an enchanting Starlit Night as we raise funds to send 100 kids to camp. Relive your childhood campfire memories with old and new friends while enjoying the interactive and fun entertainment from our Camp Counselors. With your support, we can fill one whole camp session and provide 100 kids with an unforgettable camp experience and 8 days that will last a lifetime.

Mahreen Dasoo is a confident 20-year-old in her first year of political science at York University's Glendon Campus. She's also a Moorelands' After-school program leader. Back in Grade 9, Mahreen participated in Moorelands' Youth Leadership program and says that it helped her break out of her shell.
"We talked about stereotypes and racism, learned how important it is to volunteer, gain experience with student jobs," said Mahreen. "Moorelands not only helped us build confidence, it supported us in building valuable skills."
Today, she takes a leadership role within her community, emceeing events, mentoring other young girls from her community, and of course working in a Moorelands' after-school program.
"It feels amazing to work for an organization that did so much for me," says Mahreen. "When I watch the kids in my program, and see their eyes light up from succeeding when trying something new - that's the best feeling for me, because I see opportunities opening up for them."
Mahreen's accomplishments showcase how a donation to Moorelands translates into a powerful gift of opportunity for disadvantaged young children.
Please consider giving a gift of opportunity to a child today. Your donation will be a gift that will brighten his or her future for many years to come.

In spite of the horrible weather, 67 board members, staff, family and friends ran, walked and "wheeled" for Moorelands in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2012 on Sunday, October 14 and 20 camp staff gave it their all at our cheering station. Special thanks to our Neighbourhood Charity Challenge Champions- Mike Idzenga (full marathon), Jacqueline Harvey (half-marathon), Uwe Stueckmann (half-marathon) and John Offutt (half-marathon) as well as the others who managed full and half marathon and 5k.

Many thanks to the volunteers from Mackenzie Financial's Legal Services and our major program partner, the Mackenzie Financial Charitable Foundation, for helping to make Moorelands' 100th Birthday Bash so special.
