Blue Water Development recently hosted Moment of Peace Adventures (MOPA), a nonprofit which organizes memorable hunting adventures for children 18 years and under with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses, for a weekend of water-themed activities. The fun took place at Blue Water’s campground, The Resort at Massey’s Landing in Long Neck, DE, and at other nearby attractions.

The fun-filled weekend included:

  • Three nights at Massey’s Landing
  • Resort activities such as paddle boarding and swimming
  • Meals at the Resort
  • Touring the Ocean City boardwalk
  • Visit to the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum

During a fishing trip that departed from Massey’s Landing, the kids were joined by TV hunting personality Corey Brossman.

“This is our third trip to Massey’s Landing, and they have gone far and above our expectations with every trip being more and more amazing,” said MOPA board member Sherry Whitmoyer, whose son Austin is a long-time MOPA participant. “Massey’s has made every trip a memory of a lifetime.”

During this visit to the luxury campground Bruce Lambert, MOPA’s President, unveiled the new Massey’s Landing sponsorship logo on the corporate RV used to transport the children. The kids also presented Blue Water with a copy of their scrapbook which documents their outings and features their time at Massey’s Landing. “For every adventure, we provide taxidermy work of the animal or fish caught and put together a video and scrapbook,” explained Whitmoyer. “The video will be shown at our annual Sportsman’s Night Out Dinner in February, which has already sold 700 tickets with a waitlist.”

“I’m so touched by the special scrapbook,” said Rafael Correa, Chief Financial Officer of Blue Water. “It’s an honor to continue hosting MOPA at Massey’s Landing, and we look forward to organizing future adventures here and at our other properties to provide memorable outdoor experiences for these kids. This is what we love to do, and we’re thrilled to be an official MOPA sponsor,” he added.

In addition to sponsoring MOPA, Blue Water recently hosted Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Eastern Shore at Sea Rocket Adventures, and sponsored a keynote address by Principal Baruti Kafele at the opening kickoff for Worcester County Public Schools (WPCS) on August 29th.
