DEDHAM — The Camp Capella Polar Dip plunge is back for another round in the icy waters of Phillips Lake in Dedham.
For 15 years, Camp Capella has hosted the highly anticipated event in an effort to raise money to help send individuals with disabilities to summer camp.
Executive Director Melanie Dresser of the non-profit summer camp said there are several ways for people to participate including in person with COVID-19 guidelines in place and more.
“The jittery jumper so you can collect pledges to not jump if you are one of those. Then we also have virtually jumping group they are typically from all over the state,” said Dresser. “They put together their own cold water event and video tape it and we post it all over our social media.”
Dresser said all participants are asked to register online and must raise a minimum of $100 in pledges to participant in the event.
She said it’s the largest fundraiser of the year, and it will take place Saturday, February 26 at noon.
