Get a Jump on Summer with YMCA Healthy Kids Day: It’s FREE!

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 during the summer.

healthy-kids-day-2013This Saturday, April 27, the YMCA of Greater Houston will celebrate YMCA Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day® is a free community event held at each of the more than 35 YMCA centers from 10 am to 1 pm.  Though activities at each Houston area YMCA may vary, some activities may include:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Moon walks
  • Face painting
  • Fitness challenges
  • Food, fun and games for the whole family
  • Exercise demonstrations
  • Health screenings
  • Facility tours
  • Summer program registrations (swim lessons, day camp, overnight camp, youth sports and more!)
  • Giveaways and fun prizes
