YMCA of Central Ohio

Healthy Kids Day 2017

Nothing charges up kids like summer—and Healthy Kids Day® is the Y's official start to the best summer ever!  So make sure your kids get the most they can out of this summer...in spirit, mind and body.  Everyone is welcome to enjoy the fun!

On Saturday, April 29, the YMCA of Central Ohio is celebrating the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of families. This free event  will include fun active play and educational activities to keep kids moving and learning, in order to maintain healthy habits and academic skills to achieve goals and reach their full potential. Millions of children and their families are expected to participate in Healthy Kids at nearly 1,600 events across the country.

Join us at your local branch on April 29, 2017 for fun activities for the kids and family. Find information about the events at each branch below. Keep an eye on this page--we will continue to add branches and update the information as time goes on!
