Manitou’s Polar Bear Extreme club is sponsoring a New Year’s Day contest! Take a video or a photo of yourself plunging into a body of water (or dump cold water over your head) and post the video or photo to social media using the tag #touplunge18. Start your year by Making Every Day Count! On January 2nd, we’ll select winners in each category: Most Creative Camper, Most Creative Staff Member, Most Creative Group, and Most Creative Alumni. Winners earn a limited edition Manitou Polar Bear Plunge T-shirt and Extreme status in the Manitou Polar Bear club.
