Missing camp after a great summer experience as a camper? Interested in Fitch but want to start with a shorter stay? Want to see Camp in all of its snowy glory? The Winter Kids’ Adventure Weekend is the perfect fit for you!
Campers will participate in some favorite classic camp activities such as horseback riding (no extra charge!), campfires, art projects, hikes, rock climbing, games, shooting sports and more! They’ll also enjoy the Camp in its chilliest season (and hopefully with lots of snow!) Campers will be housed with Camp Fitch staff in our modern heated lodges with attached bathrooms. The total cost of the weekend is $115 which is all inclusive.
Transportation is available for campers traveling from the Youngstown area from the Davis Family YMCA in Boardman, OH. The bus will leave Davis YMCA on Friday, December 14th at 6 pm and return to the Davis YMCA on Sunday, December 16th at noon. (Please let us know if you plan to take advantage of our bus transportation in advance.) Campers not traveling on the bus should plan to arrive at Camp at 7 pm Friday. Pick up at Camp is 10:30 am on Sunday.

Join a stalwart band of people who are passionate about the power that a week of summer camp has on kids: to develop their resilience and emotional intelligence, but also to grant them access to a community of love and acceptance. The 9th Annual Polar Bear Plunge at Camp Fitch will be a lot things — crazy, exhilarating, and a ton of fun — but the primary outcome is to pave the road for kids to get a week-long summer camp experience who face many roadblocks that would otherwise stop them from having this crucial growth experience.

We welcome plungers of all ages: our youngest plunger is 7, and we’ve had plungers over 70 fundraise and Take a Dunk to Fill a Bunk. The metaphor is apt: jumping into frigid water takes a lot of courage and faith — just like coming to summer camp where you don’t know anyone. Just as plungers report the event as being exhilarating, and even cleansing, the kids who receive the gift of camp also describe their experience similarly: the deep thrill of making a close friendship, the satisfaction of overcoming fears and seeing themselves as stronger, more capable.
