7th Annual YMCA Camp Ingersoll

Chill for Change 2021!

Saturday, February 20th, 2021


Thank you for making the 7th Chill for Change the best one yet. Your positive energy, support, and willingness to ask for donations will change lives this summer. Currently, we have raised over $20,000.00! This is the most ever, BUT, we’re not done yet. We have posted the photos on Facebook and in the album below. The event day video is also below! Please feel free to tag, like and share them on your FB Walls with a link to your donation page. We are going to keep the page live until Sunday, February 28, 2021. 


This past year has been challenging enough for everyone, so we are more than excited about this chance to come together to make a true impact for our community. Thank you for helping change children's lives at camp!

There are plenty of ways for everyone to be involved!

1. Take the Plunge! - Create a team to jump together or sign up individually! Would be plungers seek out pledges and donations for their willingness to jump into freezing (but also exhilarating) Jobs Pond at Camp Ingersoll. Participants 14 yrs and older are invited to Plunge. Children under 18 years of age must have a Parent or Guardian sign their wavier and be present at the event. All proceeds go directly towards providing camp scholarships for children to attend YMCA Camp Ingersoll over the summer! See below for the how to sign up you or your team today!

2. Donate to Someone Else taking the plunge! And then come to watch! - Would be plungers must raise a minimum of $100 and they can't do it on their own. If you know someone who is participating, support them by making a pledge!

3. Watch and Spread the News of the Event! - We will most likely be limiting spectators this year due to Covid-19 guidelines, but we will be live-streaming the event on our Camp Ingersoll Facebook page so be sure to tune in to see all our participants take the plunge! Be sure to share it so everyone is able to see this great event!


The individual who raises THE MOST Funds, will receive a certificate for 1 FREE SESSION OF CAMP! This certificate can be used for your own family, or can be gifted to anyone who would benefit!

Prizes will also be awarded for Best Costume and Best Team Theme! So gather your friends, families, co workers, or whoever else and start planning your costumes!

In addition to this, if you are a Camp Ingersoll Staff Member....
The individual staff, or STAFF TEAM, that raises the most funds this year will receive brand new Camp Ingersoll Sweatshirts at the beginning of the Summer Season! It doesn't matter if you're a team of 1 or a team of 10, whichever team comes out on top will receive sweatshirts for all!!

Interested in participating this year? Reach out to our Assistant Camp Director, Emerson Badessa, @ 860.342.2267 or ebadessa@midymca.org. Hope to see you take the plunge with us or tuning into our Facebook Live Event!
