Our Camps History
In 1971, while the New Jersey State Elks were looking for a site for a camp, the trustees of Camp Moore, a camp for underprivileged children that shut down in the 1930's were looking for someone to carry on their work. The camp was donated with the stipulation that the name of A. Harry Moore, former governor of NJ be carried on in perpetuity.

More than thirty years later, due to the hard work and dedication of many thousands of NJ State Elks, Elks Camp Moore, the NJ State Elks Major Charity Project has grown to great proportions. The camp is composed of over 18 modern buildings, which are air conditioned and handicapped accessible. Among the buildings stand three modern camper dormitories, a two story dining hall, kitchen, arts and crafts and games room and also a fully equipped infirmary. The camp also contains a large heated pool that is completely wheelchair accessible.
