On Saturday, January 19, we at the Southington Community YMCA are holding our 14th Annual Sloper Plunge to raise money to send kids to camp this summer.

We anticipate nearly 200 warm-hearted members of our community to “take the plunge” into the icy waters of Sloper Pond.

Our goal is to raise enough money to provide financial aid to over 100 youngsters from the area – giving them an experience of a lifetime!

PLEASE help us reach our $50,000 goal!

A Note From Mark Pooler

As the past Camp Director of YMCA Camp Sloper for 20 years, I have seen first-hand how an experience at camp can improve a child’s life. Have the opportunity to make life-long friends, try new activities, develop leadership skills, be outside and active, and increase self-confidence can do so much for a young child or teen. These are the benefits that are delivered daily at YMCA Camp Sloper thanks to an amazing camp staff, cutting edge programming and a state of the art facility. Every child deserves this opportunity and by making a pledge today, you are helping to ensure we at the YMCA can provide this type of experience to families in need. Please consider a gift from the heart so we can help change child’s life for the better!
