Healthy Kids Day

Healthy Kids Day®

Awaken Summer Imagination


On April 21, 2018, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day! our annual, nationwide initiative designed to inspire all youth, parents, and caregivers – regardless of membership status – to get active and make healthy choices over the summer and beyond.

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.

At the Y, we believe kids can do anything with the right support. That’s why we are committed to helping kids get on (and stay on!) a healthy youth development journey that includes physical, cognitive, and social-emotional growth.


On Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative with more than 1,300 Ys holding free community events for the entire family. Healthy Kids Day encourages kids and families to stay active, connected and healthy. Bring the entire family for activities, games, arts & crafts, fitness classes and much more. EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Activities at the Greater Naples YMCA will include:
