A variety of child and family focused activities including CATCH games, camp activities, healthy snack tasting, paddle plunge spectating, and costume judging are just a few of the ways the entire family will enjoy time together.

The Paddle Plunge is an annual event hosted by the Southern District YMCA to celebrate the culmination of fundraising activities that dedicated School Age Child Care staff and students, and community members will work on throughout the month of March. The goal is to raise $7,000. 100% of the funds raised will benefit local school children by providing scholarships to attend SD YMCA School Age Child Care.
