Kelowna Polar Bear Dip

We regret to inform you that we have made the tough decision to cancel our in person Polar Bear Dip at Tugboat Beach on January 1 due to the worsening COVID-19 situation. With the consideration of the community at heart we do not feel it would be socially responsible to host the event at this time. 

However, we will once again move the dip online to a virtual challenge as we did in 2021. Below are details of how to participate:

– Register and donate on Trellis

– Prove you’re a Polar Bear – do a dip in the lake, an ice cold bath tub, jump in a snowbank, feel free to get creative!

– Take a video of your challenge and submit it through social media to be entered to win some great prizes.

Videos can be submitted through facebook or instagram and must have @cris_polarbeardip (instagram) and @CRISpolarbearchallenge (facebook) tagged and use the hashtag #CRISPolarBearDip. Video submissions will be accepted until January 9th

We would love for you to participate in the dip virtually and for you to share this over social media and challenge your friends!

Prizes such as 2 ski passes to Telemark, 4 H20 swim/gym passes, $75 gift card to MEC, and many more will be awarded to the most creative and most Polar Bear like dips!

Thank you for your continued support and we very much hope we can make this dip a reality again in 2023.
