Chester Camp Raises Money For Water Filtration In Hati

Campers at Grace Day Camp raised money to help provide water filtration to those in Haiti.

CHESTER, NJ — Campers at the Grace Day Camp in Chester spent their summer raising money to help provide clean water to people living in Haiti.

Throughout the course of the mission project, campers raised over $2,200 to help purchase Sawyer Water Filters. Each filter can clean 1 million liters of water, and will be delivered to Haiti by a ministry program.

The water filters are similar to what campers and hikers use during long trips outdoors. They use hollow fiber membrane filters to clean out viruses, heavy metals, chemicals, and other types of contaminants from the drinking supply.

Run by the Grace Bible Chapel, the Grace campers engage in charitable mission projects every year.

"We are so thankful for the camper's outpouring of love for the people of Haiti," the camp said.

While DEET products may be more familiar by name and their chemical smell, sprays with 20 percent picaridin, like Sawyer Products, offer comparable protection without the harsh odor and oily feeling on your skin.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).

SAWYER MINI WATER FILTER, $22 This has been my water filter of choice for years now. The bags can be iffy — I have had a few break – so carry a couple. However, the filter itself is reliable, light and inexpensive. -Logan
