Find Your Fun, Find Your Y at Healthy Kids Day!
The YMCA is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 29 10am-1pm. This free, open to the public, annual event features a variety of family-friendly activities to encourage healthy kids, healthy families and a healthy start to the summer season. For event locations, please visit the Branch web sites.
In celebration of this annual kick-off to summer, we are sharing a list of five activities that we encourage you to share with your kids. The goal is to have them try something new at the Y by promoting a variety of opportunities to get involved in active play – hopefully, this will inspire a lifetime love of physical and mental activity! Share these opportunities with your children and inspire them to “find their fun” by discovering an activity that they love!
Find Your Swimming Skills with Y Swim Lessons Each year the Y teaches children to swim. In 2022, we taught 9,844 children to swim and be safe in and around the water. This helps them find their CONFIDENCE, teaches a lifelong skill and introduces them to lifelong fun.
Find Your Adventure with Y Summer Camp Summer is a time for kids to explore new things and expand the limits of their imagination. At Y, every day is a new adventure! Whether experiencing the wonder of YMCA Camp Hi-Rock or having a blast with new friends at summer day camp, many children and teens find their ADVENTURE with the Y.
Find your Passion with Y Sports Youth sports are just the start of something bigger– besides teaching healthy living principles, they also teach the value of teamwork, help fuel determination and build character. At Y, we have a variety of programs to help keep children active while igniting their PASSION for something greater.
Find Your Voice with Y Teen Programs We believe young people have the power to change the world. Our teen and young adult programs are designed to help young people develop the skills and confidence they need to lead positive change in our community.
Find Your Curiosity with STEAM Programs Our STEAM programs include activities that help inspire wonder about the world around us. Guiding children to find their CURIOSITY is key to helping them reach their full potential.
