Mooredale Day Camp Senior Camper team building

Senior Section (9-12 yrs)

Senior campers will have completed Grade 3 or above by June 2017.  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 8:1. 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.

This summer, MDC is excited to offer several specialty streams for campers to choose from.  Here are the highlights for each of the options we have this summer and which session they are available: 

1.  Overnight Camping / Day Tripping Session 1 and Session 3  *No Camp Aug 7
  • Highlighted by a three-day, two-night camping trip (during the second week) to Kelso Conservation Area in Milton, Ont.

  • 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.
