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 Terri Connellan

I always said I would NEVER, EVER jump into the Camp Sloper pond in January - yet this is my 4th year doing it! The rewards outweigh the 10 seconds in the freezing cold water. I have photographed every child at Camp Sloper, every summer for the last 20 years. I personally see the happy smiles, kids running, playing games outside, swimming (in warm water), laughing and having fun in a supervised, beautiful setting. Every child should have this opportunity and yet not every child does. The money we raise helps so many children, from our own community, come to this amazing place! Please help me reach my goal again this year, every single dollar helps! THANK YOU!!!
