Awaken Summer Imagination at YMCA Healthy Kids Day®

YMCA of Greater Kansas City
February 25, 2019
Healthy Kids Day 2019

Join Ys throughout the metro for on Saturday, April 27, 2019, for our annual YMCA Healthy Kids Day®. Ys will offer free community events to motivate and teach families how to develop and maintain healthy routines throughout the summer months. 

Healthy Kids Day is the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families. Activities are designed to ignite children’s imaginations so that they can imagine what they’ll accomplish this summer.  

When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school learning activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year.

A child's development is never on vacation. Healthy Kids Day is a powerful reminder to make sure kids are active mentally and physically during the summer. To make the most of a vacation from school, the Y encourages families to focus on helping children imagine what they can accomplish over the summer. 

Check back for a list of details for our 2019 YMCA Healthy Kids Day events. For more information, contact your local Y.
