This year marks the Southington YMCA's 13th Annual Sloper Plunge! Last year 166 warm-hearted members of the community jumped in to Sloper Pond for a great cause! This year, we're expecting nearly 200 people to take the plunge! One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event are used to send kids to camp. Are you interested in joining to cause to take the plunge? Or perhaps support one of this year's plungers!

What is the Sloper Plunge?

...only the coolest and fastest fundraiser in Southington. 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 YMCA Camp Sloper. We provide close to $50,000 in camp scholarships to families in need right here in Southington. Check out the fun from last year.
