Freezin' for a Reason!
Looking for a new way to start off the New Year with a SPLASH?  Come join the Camp Kekoka staff for their annual POLAR BEAR PLUNGE at Camp Kekoka!
This unlikely event has brave participants of all ages plunging into the frigid waters of Indian Creek to raise money for the Guardian Program, a scholarship fund which ensures every child gets to experience Camp Kekoka regardless of their ability to pay.  What better way to start off the New Year than by jumping into the freezing creek to give a kid a Camp Kekoka week?!
It’s $100 to take the plunge so get family, friends, & co-workers to sponsor you to take the plunge!
Plungers and sponsors are invited to warm up afterward with hot soup, hot chocolate, and other assorted goodies. 
Plungers will need to be ready to take the plunge by 11am sharp. You may arrive at camp as early as 10am. There will be a meeting with all plungers at 10:45.
Call or email to join the plungers, sponsor a plunger, or for more information.
