Like the Moose Lodge, Mooseheart was only open to Caucasians.  In the 1950s, a pediatrician conducting a longitudinal study of children's growth at Mooseheart recalled there was tension since he felt that the board of directors was conducting to prove the superiority of the white race. By the 1990s, Mooseheart was open to children of all races and predominantly enrolled minority children.
In the mid 1990s, five Mooseheart employees were criminally charged with sexually abusing children.
