Morry’s Swim-A-Thon at NSDC
North Shore Day Camp families have helped make us one of the leading camps in funding “camper-ships” to Morry’s Camp. Morry’s Camp is a unique four-week program which guarantees four summers of camp to under-privileged children who keep up with their school work and are positive role models in their community.
One of the ways in which we help is by having a camp-wide “Morry’s Swim-A-Thon” each summer. This week, our campers gave it their all and once again proved what a fantastic group of North Shore families we have! Our campers participated by either swimming or walking laps in our pools to raise money for inner city children who would otherwise not be able to attend summer camp. We keep track of what our campers accomplish and send home a record of the number of laps our campers swam (or walked for our non-swimmers). Our North Shore Day Camp families have been incredibly generous, and pledge various amounts per lap walked or swam. The funds raised have truly made a difference in the lives of hundreds of children, and this year was no exception. So a HUGE thank you to our North Shore Day Camp families!
