About Moorelands Community Services:
Founded in 1912, Moorelands Community Services (Moorelands) works with Toronto’s children and youth affected by poverty. It provides them with positive and fun experiences to help strengthen their confidence, competence and character. Mooreland’s Wilderness Camp and Family Programs serve children from low-income neighbourhoods across Toronto. Its City Programs are delivered to the high needs, under-served neighbourhoods of Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park.
Mooreland’s Wilderness Camp serves 600 children and youth aged 8-16 at Lake Kawagama. It offers highly subsidized programs through its general and leadership camps to low-income youth. Mooreland’s City Programs serves 460 students each school year. Its after-school leadership programs are highly subsidized for the young people of Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park. In F2015, Moorelands Community Services worked with over 1,100 Toronto children and youth affected by poverty.
Mooreland’s Family Programs include Baby Bundles and the Christmas Sharing Program. The Baby Bundles program helps mothers in need by providing a free bundle of basic baby supplies.

The Christmas Sharing program helped 320 families in F2015, reaching over 1,000 individuals.
