AquaHug 2022: Swimming for SAK

After a successful and fun AquaHug in 2021, the Starry Summer Night committee returned for the third annual relay swim, setting out to raise a goal of $10,000 for the Moorelands Kids Send a Kid to Camp Campaign. 

Sending Kids to Camp, Together

On August 6th, 33 participants between the ages of 4 and 66 took part in a socially distanced swim around the perimeter of the Moorelands Camp, a distance of exactly 2 kilometres. Each swimmer chose a distance they were comfortable with and together they swam clockwise to form an “Aqua Hug” around the campground. (Modafinil)  

Sixteen swimmers chose to start their own fundraisers in support of the Send a Kid to Camp Aqua Hug, and together received over 150 donations and raised a total of over $14,850 – 50% higher than the original fundraising goal and enough to send nine kids to camp next year!
