Mentoring-in-Motion Charity Event

Brownstone Park is hosting the 4th Annual Mentoring-in-Motion Event June 18, kicking off summer and benefiting all of the state’s authorized one-on-one mentoring programs. Zip lining, cliff jumping, wakeboarding, kayaking and eating – what better way to start summer and help out the local community.

For the first time ever, come see the Brownstone “Mascot Off”. Meet Rocky from the Rock Cats, Pucky and Sonar from the Connecticut Whale, and Colonial Tom from the Colonials. Cheer them on and root for your favorite mascot as they go through a special Brownstone Mascot Survivor Challenge.

The day also includes special appearances by WFSB Meteorologist Curtis Grevenitz and Walmart Jeff from 95.7 FM’s KISS in the Morning show from noon to 2 p.m. The KISS Street Team will be on site with music and prizes!

Platinum sponsor Coke is donating drinks, Courtside Café of Middletown is donating food to mentors and their sponsored kids. Scuba Shack is donating lessons to mentors and their sponsored kids.

Normal admission rates apply, but for this special event a spectator pass is available for $9. You’ll be contributing to the charity and will be able to meet the mascots and other media personalities.

Gold sponsors include Prime Climb and Stoneage Rock Gym.

Brownstone Donates 50 Percent of the Days Gate Fees
Check out our newest additions including side by side racing ziplines, new overhead cable driven wakeboarding system for faster, easier jumps, 25′ and 45′ water slides, rope swings and so much more. We want to welcome as many guests as possible to the park on June 18. The more guests that enjoy a day of fun at Brownstone, the more we raise to help Connecticut children’s mentoring programs. Over the past three years, with your support we have raised more than $31,000 benefiting organizations including Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, True Colors, the thirteen DCF one on one mentoring partners across the state and the Governor’s Prevention Partnerships which include 160 programs statewide. Our gates open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Special Father’s Day Package
Spend Father’s Day weekend at Brownstone. Start with the Friday night movie on the beach followed by two days of fun and adventure all for the special price of $45, regularly priced at $61. Only want to spend Sunday? No problem, the park welcomes all Dads on Father’s Day. Brownstone encourages all to visit remembering that each visitor to the park on Saturday makes a difference in a child’s life with half of all gate fees donated to the mentoring programs.

Mentors and their Sponsored Child Play for Free
In addition to donating 50 percent of the gate fees, we are also extending free admission to participating mentors and their sponsored child. Children will receive free scuba diving, rock climbing, kayaking, snorkeling or wakeboarding lessons.

How the Programs Help
These funds make it possible for many disadvantaged kids to be matched with caring and inspirational adult mentors. These mentors help children realize their potential, build strong futures and create strong communities. None of that is possible without the ongoing support of businesses and the community.
