Healthy Kids Day® is the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids and families. For over 30 years, YMCAs and their communities hosted free community events aimed to inspire kids and families to keep their minds and bodies active throughout the summer months and beyond. Stay tuned for more details, including how to find a Y hosting Healthy Kids Day near you.
We believe that families and neighborhoods are the building blocks for positive change. See how families, friends and communities can help support healthy lifestyles for all.
At the Y, we understand the importance of family time and bonding. We give families opportunities to explore new interests, improve their health and well–being, connect to their community, and have a good time – together.
The Y serves as the center of community, bringing people from all backgrounds together. But in times when it's not possible for us to be physically together, we're dedicated to keep people and communities active, healthy and connected – at home.
Staying physically active is important for a child's growth and well–being. Our sports programs keep kids moving, while teaching friendly competition and introducing healthy practices for life.
