Al Goodman, Director Emeritus, was involved in childrens camping from 1942 until his retirement in 1994. He directed many leading camps in Ontario before taking ownership of Camp New Moon in 1959/60. His experience and love of camping continues to provide New Moon with great ideas and a strong sense of history. He and his wife Marg still enjoy regular visits to New Moon to interact with campers and staff, sharing stories and great memories.

Our Program Staff are talented and creative, selected amongst the best of applicants. Most have been graduates of our CIT program, beginning as campers themselves. They offer a nurturing environment for all children. Counsellors offer creative programming and exceptional leadership skills, and our specialists are trained and certified in their area of instruction. We enjoy a remarkable return rate of our staff. The head staff is comprised of senior and highly experienced veterans who have many years of staff strong leadership experience.
