April 11: Paddle Plunge and Family Fun Day
10 am - 1 pm at YMCA Camp Lincoln
On April 11, just as the ice clears the lake, Southern District YMCA supporters will don their best costumes and race into the water for a freezing dip in Kingston Lake to benefit The Paddle Plunge. Why will they do it? Because they care! The Paddle Plunge raises money for the YMCA Scholarship Fund, which helps make YMCA programs more affordable for families in need. Click here to donate to the Paddle Plunge!
In addition to the Paddle Plunge itself, there are a lot of FREE activities for families and friends to do at camp: climb the treadwall, challenge a friend in carpetball, make s'mores and enjoy a healthy lunch. You’ll also be able to talk with local organizations and businesses that help families play together, eat better and stay healthy!
Make a splash for youth! Take the plunge! Southern District YMCA staff, local businesses, organizations and community members are also invited to create a team. That means you! Participants receive a free lunch, prizes for the best costumes and the joy of helping a good cause. The minimum suggested donation per individual is $50. The minimum suggested donation per team is $150. Feel free to raise funds to cover the donation! Create a team or plunge on your own: Join the Paddle Plunge!
We have put together a toolkit that includes useful information about joining the Paddle Plunge and fundraising for the YMCA, as well as a flyer to help spread the word! Click here to download the Paddle Plunge toolkit.

June 23, July 28, August 11, 6-8 pm: Community Nights
You, your family, and neighbors are all invited to celebrate summer at YMCA Camp Lincoln for Community Night. Community Night is our way of saying thank you to the generous volunteers and donors who give access to the YMCA programs to those who do not have the means to pay for it. You are invited to Camp Lincoln to get a taste of what kids (and staff!) enjoy every day! No reservations are required for dinner or entertainment. The entire family is welcome.
The driveway opens at 6:00 pm. We will fire up the grill and serve dinner to all guests. Boating, swimming, archery and climbing will be open for use. We will wrap-up by 8:00 pm following a bonfire, complete with marshmallow toasting, a Summer favorite!
This party is free of charge and open to all. YMCA Camp Lincoln is located at 67 Ball Road, Kingston, NH.
