Camp Sunshine is pleased to announce the 2019 Wachusett Polar Dip Polar Dip . We believe that together we can send many more children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to our one-of-a-kind retreat in Casco, Maine.

With the strength of an event such as the 2019 Wachusett Polar Dip and the resources of Camp Sunshine, it is our goal to raise in excess of $50,000.00. That is enough to send 20 families from Massachusetts to Camp Sunshine.

All participants who raise at least $100 will receive a highly coveted "I DID IT" event tshirt. 

Too scared or too smart to take the plunge? There’s the option to participate in the “Chicken Dip” – where you’ll only need to dip your toes in! 

Introducing the Camp Sunshine "Polar Pool School Challenge"

Since 2010, the Polar Pool has been a symbol of the Freezin' for a Reason efforts in Massachusetts. Set up annually at the base lodge at Wachusett Mountain, filled (never filtered) from the icy depths of their snowmaking pond... it is a plunge like no other!

Let the shenanigans begin! This year's Wachusett Polar Dip will take place on St. Patrick's Day! To celebrate, we are reaching out to all of the school groups that volunteer to see which school will take home the title of the Greatest Polar School! Camp Sunshine is honored to partner with Massachusetts schools and communities who understand the importance of our mission and the impact it has on the families we serve.

Each year, hundreds of students and faculty members return to volunteer, help organize events, and most importantly create awareness for our program. This is your opportunity to see how you stack up against other Massachusetts schools. It's going to feel like one lucky day for the top schools as trophies will be awarded for the largest team, highest fundraising team and best team costumes. The challenge aside, it's going to be a great day to hang out with other volunteers and Camp families from Massachusetts and of course, it's all for a great cause!

The trophies (along with bragging rights) will be brought back to your school and displayed until next year's challenge, So form a team, dress to impress and tell your friends the leprechauns made you do it!
