2023 Fishkill Polar Plunge - 25th Anniversary!
Saturday, February 18, 2023
Sharpe Reservation - Camp Mariah, Fishkill NY
436 Van Wyck Lake Rd, Fishkill, NY 12524
CLICK HERE TO VIEW NEWSLETTER - HAD GREAT INFORMATION!
NOTE: WE DO ACCEPT DAY OF PARTICIPANTS AND DONATIONS - WE WILL ALSO EXTEND DONATIONS UNTIL A MONTH - SO IF YOU ARE BEHIND OR EYEING THAT INCENTIVE, YOU HAVE TIME!
Please arrive at Sharpe with your team and spectators 1/2 hour before your plunge time. The folks at gate will have two different color papers. YELLOW will allow you to go up to Sharpe. BLUE will have you to go Camp Tommy - which is just up the road of Camp Mariah where you go to park.
When you arrive at gate, you will be asked if your entire team is present. If so, and there is room for you to park at Camp Mariah, you and the entire team will head to Camp Mariah. If you say no, then you will head up to Camp Tommy until your entire team shows up. Once they show up, and there is room to park, your entire team will head up to Sharpe. THIS INCLUDES SPECTATORS AS WELL. You team and spectators must be together before you are allowed up to Camp Mariah.
DUE TO THE VERY LIMITED PARKING AT CAMP MARIAH, WE ARE DOING THIS BY TIME - SO PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE EARLIER THAN A 1/2 HOUR BEFORE YOUR PLUNGE TIME OR YOU WILL BE WAITING AT CAMP TOMMY UNTIL IT IS YOUR TIME TO GO UP TO CAMP MARIAH
ALSO PLEASE NOTE - MOST TEAMS WANTED MORNING SLOTS. WE DID THE BEST WE COULD TO PENCIL YOU IN. PLEASE UNDERSTAND, THERE MAYBE A WAIT. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH US IF THERE IS. THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!
We believe that this will help teams, help the congestion at gate, help captains from worrying about their team members, being late or even waiting for spectators as well to see them jump. It will also resolve all the issues of parking at Camp Mariah which is limited.
Also, to move the teams, please arrive, park, register, we have two buildings for changing / bathrooms, jump and then head out. This way, when cars leave Camp Mariah, we can move cars up there from Camp Tommy.
THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH FOR HELPING US OUT.

It is with a heavy heart to announce the passing of our very dear friend and mentor, Neal J. Johnson. His passion for the Athletes was heart warming. He was an icon, a legend. Truly loved by so many, especially the Athletes.
Chris and I have known Neal for so very many years. For this reason, we will be dedicating the plunge in his honor this year. So, please join us in keeping his mission for the Athletes alive. His heart was always with the Athletes and did everything he could for them.
We love you Neal.
