Red House Reno—memories made HERE!

Time marches on and we as adults do not take the time to stop and smell the roses.

Red house reno fundraiser

Reminisce about those special times in our lives which define us in the most profound ways.

As a kasvataja at the Mudimaja, aka “the Red House”, “Vana maja, Punane maja”, I treasure watching my children playing on the swings, in the sandbox on endless summer days while making lasting friendships with eesti lapsed from all over Southern Ontario, the US, and beyond. One memory shared by my son Erik was climbing the trees out front with his friends, way too high and getting heck for it!

Special cozy days doing crafts, singing and reading eesti muinasjuttud every night as each child drifted off to sleep one by one.

Memories are priceless which is why we are asking you to give generously to the Red House Reno!


Anyone who came to camp in the 1950s or 1960s, we ask you to donate and in the coming months see which group donates the most! Put your money where your heart is!
