Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. On April 29th, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. This event is fun for the whole family, free for all, and occurring at all four of our Association's branches. Below are highlights of what each of our branches offered last year!

Casco Bay: Book Fair, Moon Bounce, Family Yoga, A build-your-own parfait bar brought to us by Hannaford, and much more!

Greater Portland: Touch a Fire Truck, Bouncy House, Portland Public Library, guest DJ, and much more!

Northern York County: An outdoor climbing wall, Blindfolded (healthy) taste-test, Children's Yoga, Juicing Plus, and more!

Pineland: Face painting, Inflatable Obstacle Course, Candlepin Bowling, and much more!
