Healthy Kids Day

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out, and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in school.

On Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 10AM - 1PM, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative with more than 1,300 Ys holding free community events for the entire family. Healthy Kids Day encourages kids and families to stay active, connected and healthy.

  • Bounce houses
  • Free snack
  • Face painting
  • Fun prizes
  • Games & sports
  • Free family fitness demos
  • Arts, crafts and STEM activities
  • PLUS enter to win a free week of Y Summer Camp

The Y is all about building a better us. The more support, guidance, and opportunities we give kids, the further they will reach. The further they reach, the more they can achieve - and together, we build a better us. That's why we provide kids a healthy, caring environment of fun, learning, and belonging to help them reach their fullest potential.
