Join EPEF for the 2nd Annual Polar Plunge

Saturday March 7th


Trout Haven Resort Fishing Pond

Online preregistration has ended. You can still plunge! Registration begins at 10am!

Take the Plunge and support us at the Polar Bear Plunge

The 2nd Annual Polar Bear Plunge at Trout Haven Resorts will be held starting at 10am on Saturday March 7th at the Trout Haven Fishing Pond at 810 Moraine Avenue. New this year Trout Haven has partnered with the Estes Park Education Foundation for this fundraiser as a means to support students, programs, and staff across the Estes Park School District.


Adults, students and five-person teams will take the plunge in support of the Estes Park Education Foundation. Pledges start at $50 for adults and $25 for students (K-12). Teams of 5 can receive the benefit of 20% discount depending on the composition of their team. Individuals and especially teams are encouraged to dress in costumes!


Want to make the plunge in support of EPEF but can’t hit the icy water yourself? No problem! You can also support EPEF by sponsoring a plunge (individual, student or team) and someone else will jump for you. Just visit for more information.


The new Estes Park Education Foundation is a 501c3 charitable entity working to unify community support for the Park R3 school district by inspiring community investment in exemplary student learning experiences today, to develop our citizens of tomorrow.


Proceeds of this fundraiser will be used by the Estes Park Education Foundation to support our pillars. With your support teachers, students and district staff can apply directly to the Foundation for funding support.
