Mooredale Day Camp Senior Camper team building

Senior Section (9-12 yrs)

Senior campers will have completed Grade 3 or above by June 2019.  They participate in a special separate program, which offers more challenging activities appropriate for their age group and interest level. The camper to counsellor ratio in this section is a maximum of 10:1. Senior campers will take part in their specialty program for half the day, and 'regular' camp programs and activities for the rest of the day.

2019 Options

The 2019 Senior Specialties are still to be determined and will be updated shortly.  But, to get an idea of what the options could be made available, here is the 2018 list: 

1. Day Tripping All Sessions (except for weeks 2 & 8 when campers are on the Camping trip)

  • Day Tripping is the Traditional Camping Stream, but with a special flare for our Seniors! Each week, campers in this stream will go on two day trips around the city.

2. Overnight Camping  Session 1 and Session 3

  • On-site camping skills program, such as orienteering, mapping, nature education and outdoor cooking.
  • A Mooredale Day Camp regular cook-out lunch, recreational swimming, camp theme days and special programs.
NOTE:  Because of the number of days missed while on trips, this stream does not include daily swimming lessons, but does included the Recreation swim time on the days students are on site.
