Y on the Fly


The YMCA of Greater Dayton's ‘Y ON THE FLY’ program is a mobile YMCA delivering games, activities and healthy snacks to children in underserved neighborhoods during the summer months. This program is FREE to the public and NO REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED!

The van will be loaded with balls, parachutes, nets, hula hoops, jump ropes, games, sidewalk chalk and other fun activities. “Y on the Fly” will offer at least 60 minutes of activities at each stop, with the remaining 30 minutes spent preparing healthy snacks with children.

The van will be making two stops a day from June 3rd-August 5th on weekdays in various neighborhoods around Dayton, Trotwood, and Xenia!

There will be a morning session at one location from 10-11:30am and a second session in the afternoon at a different location from 1:00-2:30pm. The van will stop at libraries, parks, community gardens and more. 

Join us at our ten locations to get the most out of your summer and create healthy habits for life! Learn, grow, and thrive with the YMCA every weekday this summer!

“Y on the Fly” has been made possible by PNC Bank, DP&L, Dayton Children’s Hospital, and Public Health-Dayton & Montgomery County. We could not run this summer program without their drive and dedication to building community in the Miami Valley.
