Our Camps Mission
Elks Camp Moore is not the usual handicapped children's camp as it is located in the heart of the Ramapo Mountains. The setting of the camp provides a breathtaking view of the valley below, and mountains in the distance. When a child vacations at Elks Camp Moore it is an experience they will never forget, and a view which a handicapped child would not likely every experience.

We believe that like all children, the handicapped need to go to camp for new experiences, new friends and to participate in 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.
