New Moon
 is owned and directed by Jack and Sue Goodman.

Jack Goodman has been involved with New Moon for most of his life. Since 1975, Jack has gained extensive staff experience in almost every facet of childrens camping, providing strong leadership to both staff and campers of all ages.

Sue Goodman has also enjoyed extensive experience working in camp, and through her work as an Early Childhood Education specialist. Sue’s programming skills are seen at all age levels and in particular, our Junior Camp.

Together, Jack and Sue work as a close team, using a warm and sensitive approach in providing care and leadership to both the staff and campers.

Al Goodman, Director Emeritus, has been involved in childrens camping since 1942, having directed many leading camps in Ontario before taking ownership of Camp New Moon in 1960. His experience and love of camping continues to provide New Moon with great ideas and a strong sense of history.

Our 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 experience.
