Healthy Kids Day


*Healthy Kids Day 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

School’s out and it’s time to relax, decompress and have fun with friends! 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.

On September 26th, the YMCA of Greater Dayton will celebrate Healthy Kids Day at Riverscape, as part of the national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

The Y will be hosting kids Zumba classes, line dancing, sports skills clinics, martial arts, ballet, arts and crafts, and other enrichment activities, as well as games from Camp Kern. A Fun Run will allow families to compete in a friendly race. Additionally, prizes and giveaways will be handed out to all of the participants.

The event is free and open to the public and will be a great way for your kids to kick off the summer! Mark your calendars for May 9th. It’s time to charge into summer.
