Kick Off Summer With Healthy Kids Day!

Saturday, April 27

Are the kids in your life already dreaming of summer? The Y is here to awaken imaginations, provide new activities and teach healthy habits. We believe an inspired kid can do anything. Join us on April 27 for Healthy Kids Day, the Y's national initiative to promote active minds and healthy bodies. Y branches around the county will celebrate Healthy Kids Day with free community events with fun for the whole family. Come and see what we've got planned to support your family's health and well-being this summer and all year long. 

The Y is so much more than sports, swimming and gymnastics. We stand with families in their efforts to teach healthy habits and keep kids active and learning, preparing them for a brighter future. It’s part of the Y’s promise to strengthen communities.

For more than 20 years, Healthy Kids Day has celebrated kids’ health and continues to teach healthy habits for kids and families, encourage active play, and inspire a lifetime love of physical activity.

As a leading nonprofit committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y is addressing critical gaps in kids’ health and education. We encourage all families to attend.

Note: All YMCA locations are free and open to the community on April 27, 2019. See below for a listing of special events for Healthy Kids Day.
