Important Date and Times to Remember

Sunday, December 3 - the Plunge!

Plungers can arrive at Brewster Academy any time after 9 A.M. We recommend that Plungers arrive by 10:30 A.M. 

Plungers and their guests (all must have wristbands) relax before the Plunge. At 11:30 A.M. the Costume Parade will take place.

The Plunge

After the Costume Parade, Plungers head to indoor changing areas. There are four separate changing areas (male students, female students, male faculty/staff, and female faculty/staff). Plungers are assigned to a wave (which limits the number of people taking the Plunge at one time) during check-in.  We recommend that Plungers do not leave valuables in the changing areas

Each wave will be called. When a wave is called, those Plungers move from the changing area to a staging area on the beach where the countdown begins. You should bring only items that you will take with you into the water into the staging area. When the timer hits zero, the wave jumps off the dock and Plunges into Lake Winnipesaukee!

Party like its 1999

As you exit the water, you will be handed a towel and directed back to the changing area. After putting on dry clothes, you can walk to the Plunge Party where lunch will be waiting.

After all waves have Plunged, there will be an award ceremony. Schools will be ready to depart by 2:30 P.M.
