Saturday, April 27
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

YMCA Summer is a time of active play and exploration for kids. 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 more prone to gain weight and fall behind in studies over the summer months.

As part of the Y's commitment to strengthen community by addressing critical gaps in health and education, Healthy Kids DayŽ will encourage kids and parents to commit to keeping the body and mind active this summer. With 1,900 Ys hosting free Healthy Kids Day events across the country, it's never been a better time to get up, get out and grow.
