In addition to our Lodge running events to raise funds for not only hosting a Christmas Party for the Special Needs Community of all ages. It also sends Children with Special Needs to Camp Moore since 1971. Which is tucked away in the hill of the Ramapo Mountains. Elks Camp Moore offers a fun filled vacation away from home for children with special needs. A week at Elks Camp Moore is a remarkable experience not soon to be forgotten. The primary goal of the camp is to further develop the recreational and social skills of each child. In a relaxed and accepting atmosphere, each camper experiences new adventures, lasting friendships, and opportunities that promote independence and greater self-confidence.
We believe that like all children, children with special needs flourish when provided with new experiences, new friends and activities that will aid them in their general growth. Camp allows these experiences in a new environment. Elks Camp Moore's primary function is to enable children to use and further develop recreational, social and leisure skills through activities presented in a positive, enjoyable and appropriate manner and in a real life situation.
At camp each child is challenged to try new things or to improve on what he already knows. We encourage each child to do as much as he can for himself and by himself. The guidance of a friendly and understanding counselor is always near.
