Don’t miss YMCA Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 14th!
Kick off summer with Healthy Kids Day
At the Y, we believe kids can do anything with the right support. That’s why we are committed to helping kids get on (and stay on!) a healthy youth development journey that includes physical, cognitive, and social-emotional growth. From achieving goals, to making friends, and developing strong character, the Y supports youth from cradle to career. We know that kids gain weight faster during the summer months and that youth from low income neighborhoods are disproportionately affected by summer learning loss due to limited or no access to reading materials outside of school. Healthy Kids Day is our annual, nationwide initiative designed to inspire all youth, parents, and caregivers – regardless of membership status – to get active and make healthy choices over the summer and beyond. Healthy Kids Day is our largest single-day event celebrating youth development across the United States.
