Director's Message

principal

Eric Musselman, Camp Director and Program Manager

Hello! 

Yes, that's me.  I'm usually the one taking the photos, but I couldn't resist the selfie opportunity with some of our campers and staff on our trip to Humber Arboretum this past summer.  It was such a nice day, and a really fun trip.

While I have been a Camp Director full time for over a decade now, I am just coming into my third year here at Mooredale Day Camp.  We added a few new features to our program this past year, taking advantage of the great partnerships we have with our soccer club and year round instructors to offer a wider range of specialty camp options.  We're looking forward to the coming summer and making a few changes while sticking to the formula that has made Mooredale Day Camp a neighbourhood success since 1968.

If you ever have any question that our online profile fails to answer, please don't hesitate to call or email me directly, or drop in for a tour of our facilities. We're holding an Open House on Thursday June 30th from 10am - 12pm and you're invited!  Drop in to meet myself and the staff team, and find out what our camp program is all about.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

International Flavour

We'd like to introduce you to Camper Y and his sister, Volunteer Z.  This summer we had the pleasure of them joining our program for two weeks.  Camper Y was visiting from China, and his father hoped for him to have a Canadian experience and to help him develop his English.  Since Camper Y's English was very limited, his sister -who has lived full time in Canada for a little while - agreed to volunteer for two weeks to act as his translator.

We weren't quite sure how this would go.  Would he fit in?  Could we communicate effectively with him?  How would we run programs and give instructions?

Well, we shouldn't have worried.  Camper Y did exactly what most kids do when they are in a camp setting - he made it work.  With help from his sister, he fit right in and took part in the programs.  They even found some sleeping bags and overnight gear and joined the Senior campers on their three day camping trip to Kelso Provincial Park. 

At the end of his session, I received an email from him mom, who was still in China, and had heard reports back on his camp experience.  "He loves the camp" she said.  'Can you send pictures of him taking part in activities so we can show his friends and family back home what he is doing?"  Of course we wanted to celebrate with Camper Y his success, so I spent time that afternoon following his group around capturing them in action.

We had several campers from different countries join us this summer, and even a staff member from Cuba!  The international flavour that these guests brought to camp went a long way to making this summer so successful.  We look forward to seeing Camper Y again next summer, and maybe he'll even bring a friend!


Mooredale Mealtime Madness and the Daily Water Dump

So this is me, the Camp Director. 

And no, I'm not promoting recycling.  Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the 3 R's, but this bin is not full of paper and plastic.  It's full of water.

Yep, water.

And I'm about to dump it on two of the summer staff.  Which is what I do every day after lunch.

"You drop water on your staff out a second story window every day?  You must be the meanest boss ever!"  I could understand if you thought that.

But you'd be wrong, because the daily water dump is one of the most popular aspects of our camp day.  Every day after lunch, we have a time that we call "Mooredale Mealtime Madness".  Or MMM for short.  ((Don't confuse it with Mooredale Morning Madness, also known as MMM - thats a story for another day)) 

MMM is this - each session we choose 10 counsellors to compete every day in a series of events.  And each day, one or two counsellors end up losing that event.  And when you lose....we'll, that's where the water comes in.  The staff members make their way to the walkway under the window and... well, lets just say we help them cool off!

See, I'm not a mean boss!  I'm actually helping them out!   :-)


The Evolution of a Camera-Shy Camper

This is Camper X (obviously not his real name!) and we had the pleasure of his company for six weeks this summer.  Camper X was not new to Mooredale Day Camp.  In fact he had been attending our summer program for some time. 

Since he began taking part in our camp program, Camper X has always been camera shy.  Perhaps 'shy' is too light a term - he pretty much refused to be in any photo at all, even the group photo that goes home with every camper at the end of each session.  Nothing we did could convince him to take part in any sort of picture.  We didn't push him when he said no, but we kept asking because we wanted to show his parents that he was taking part and enjoying the camp program.

Then towards the end of his final two weeks with us, things began to change.  One day the section director that Camper X was in came rushing into the camp office.  "I just got some great pictures of the campers taking part in a cooking class" she said.  "And guess what!  Camper X actually posed and smiled for a photo!  We should sent it to his mom!"  I use to many exclamation points, but she was really that excited.  It really was a big deal for us.  So we emailed the picture to mom and she was pleased.

A couple of days later, during our all camp swim, I was taking some photos of the activity, and Camper X came up to me to ask if I would take his picture.  I almost dropped by camera in the water!  I said sure and asked what he wanted to do.  "Take a picture of me jumping in the water!" he begged, so that's what we did for the next few minutes.  In and out of the pool he went to get some photos of him jumping in the water.

While we ended up with a few good photos, I was more pleased with how we had built enough of a relationship with Camper X to allow himself to trust us to take care of him.  When he didn't want his picture taken, we respected that.  When he was ready, we celebrated with him.
