POLAR LEAP FOR CAMP ERNST: Presented by the YMCA Camp Ernst Junior Board
On “Leap Day” Feb 29, 2020

  • Check in begins at 10am.
  • Costume contest results at 11am.
  • Leaps begin at 11:30am.
  • Pancake lunch served at 12:30pm.

How you can participate:

Plunge into the icy LEAP DAY waters of Camp Ernst Lake on February 29 to raise money for summer camp scholarships! To enter, click "Start Fundraising" above to create a fundraising page and raise at least $50 for camper scholarships by February 15th.

When you create your page, tell us why you leap!

Do you “leap” because you think all kids deserve a summer camp experience? Maybe someone donated for you to go to camp years ago and you want to give back? Or maybe you have always wondered what it would be like to swim in the lake in the winter?

Whatever your reason, your leap will make a difference in a child’s life this summer when they attend summer camp and grow in spirit, mind, body, and friendship.

Leap-ing Levels

  • RAISE $50 to participate
  • RAISE $75 to participate + get a longsleeve dri-fit POLAR LEAP shirt
  • RAISE $200 to participate+ get the shirt + win the Camp Ernst fleece blanket
  • RAISE $500+ for VIPL (Very Important Polar Leaper) Status: to get all of the above PLUS an individual plaque and your name on the perpetual plaque to be placed in Lakeview Lodge

Can’t make it to Camp Ernst on Feb 29? You can still participate through the VIRTUAL LEAP! Sign up, raise the money, and take a video or photo of your leap into cold water (or dumping cold water on your head) and submit it for us to share. We’ll send you what you earned and you’ll know that your cold water leap helped a child enjoy a hot summer experience at camp!

For more information, email the Camp Ernst Junior Board or, or call 859-586-6181.
