This year marks the Southington-Cheshire Community YMCA's 14th Annual Sloper Plunge! Last year, 165 warm-hearted members of the community jumped into Sloper Pond (located at YMCA Camp Sloper in Southington) for a great cause! This year, we're expecting nearly 200 people to take the plunge! One hundred percent (100% !!!) of the proceeds from this event are used to send local kids to camp this summer.

What is the Sloper Plunge?...

...Only the coolest and fastest fundraiser in the area! Each year hundreds of community leaders and volunteers jump into the icy waters of Sloper Pond in January to raise money for camp scholarships to local children in need have the opportunity to have the camp experience. We provide $50,000 in camp scholarships to local families. Check out the fun from last year.
