Given continued health concerns around COVID-19, all branches of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA, have postponed their annual Healthy Kids Day®.
Originally scheduled for Saturday, April 18, the free community event is meant to inspire and encourage families to stay physically and intellectually active all summer long.
We will continue monitoring the situation and have tentatively rescheduled Healthy Kids Day for Saturday, June 20, 2020.
Our Youth Wellness Orientation Bracelet Program is designed for youth members ages 10-13 who would like to use our Wellness Center while their parent is in the room.

Schedule your appointment today at the Member Welcome Center.
