The Community YMCA is hosting Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 27, a free community event taking place at several Y locations to awaken summer imagination and inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active now and through the summer.

Explore Healthy Living with Y!

Families are invited to participate in fitness fun, kids Zumba and yoga, dabble in arts and crafts, sample healthy snacks, enjoy giveaways, meet the Hopscotch Bunny, and more!  Parents and guardians will also get plenty of great ideas for activities to keep kids inspired and active during the summer, a time when children are more prone to gain weight and fall behind academically. While exploring facilities look for information on YMCA Counseling & Social Services.

This national YMCA initiative to improve the health and well-being of families and kids will take place at three of The Community YMCA locations:
