Upcoming Events

Winterfest at Camp Lincoln - January 10, 10 am - 12 pm

Winter is coming to New England! Join us at Camp Lincoln to celebrate the season at the YMCA's annual Winterfest: a free and fun morning of snowshoeing, sledding, ice skating (if the lake is sufficiently frozen), and hot chocolate! Bring your sleds and skates, and warm up by the fire. Bring your family and friends to this winter celebration!

Festival of Trees - December 4, 11 am - 8 pm

Come celebrate the beauty and joy of the Holiday Season at the Festival of Trees at the Exeter Town Hall. Southern District YMCA staff and volunteers will decorate a tree to be auctioned. Proceeds from the festival go to the Chamber Children's Fund.

Paddle Plunge and Family Outdoor Fun Day - April 11, 10am-1pm

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!

Many Southern District YMCA staff will be participating. But, local businesses, organization and community members are also invited to create a team. Participants receive a free lunch, prizes for the best costumes and the joy of helping a good cause.

In addition to the Paddle Plunge itself, there are a lot of FREE activities for families and friends to do at camp from climbing the treadwall to playing carpetball: face painting, games, s'mores and lunch (provided by Convenient MD). You’ll also be able to talk with local organization and businesses that help families play together, eat better and stay healthy!

Paddle Plunge and Family Outdoor Fun Day to take place at YMCA Camp Lincoln, 67 Ball Road, Kingston NH.
