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 21, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

The Y is committed to helping all kids reach their full potential. We provide a healthy, caring environment that's safe, fun, and supports supports learning.

That's why we celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our biggest day of the year devoted to kids and families! Over 1,300 Ys across the country take part in Healthy Kids Day, holding free community events that are open to all kids and families and filled with fun, active play and educational opportunities.

Join us on Saturday, April 21st at any of our branches from 10am - 12pm.  This event is free and open to the community!  We hope to see you there!
