Polar Bear Because We Care

Join a stalwart band of people who are passionate about the impact Camp Fitch has on kids. Last year over 2,000 children were given financial aid to attend camp and it all starts with people like you who are passionate to help deserving kids get to camp and experience our tradition of life altering programs that Make Kids Better, Forever!

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 camp where you don’t know anyone.

The 10th 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 so they can access the magic of camp. It’s all for the kids: our goal is that Fitch is for All — for all of those kids who without our donors and plungers, would never get the experience or the growth.

If campaigning and plunging aren’t in your plans this year, please consider backing a plunger and coming to the event on the afternoon of March 7th—you can even watch online. Hundreds of supporters turn out to socialize, play games, watch crazy people get wet in the middle of winter, win fabulous prizes, and enjoy the last of winter’s grip.

Please join us and be the difference in a child’s life, forever
