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 Tom Sangeloty

Hello! My name is Tom Sangeloty, aka Too Tall Tom, and I am the YMCA Camp Sloper Outdoor Center Program Director and the Assistant Camp Director during the summer. I have been a part of the YMCA Camp Sloper team for 7 years in various roles. This will be my 5th time jumping in the Sloper Plunge! Why am I passionate about this event? The biggest reason why I am passionate about this event is because of the direct, positive impact it has on hundreds of children in need. One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is the gift of camp and there are many reasons why. There is no better place to learn new skills like archery, boating, rock climbing, creative arts, etc; no better place to make new friends; no better place to be outside, active, practice healthy living, build self-confidence, and promote a sense of belonging; and simply no better place to have FUN! By making a donation, I can assure you that you will have changed a child's life for the better. Thank you for your support! - Too Tall Tom
