Healthy Kids Day

10:00 am

Healthy Kids Day is a National YMCA event. Over 1,300 Ys across the country are taking part in Healthy Kids Day, holding free community events that are open to all kids and families and filled with fun, active play and educational opportunities. Each Association and/or branch plans their event according to their needs.

Our event will be held on Saturday, April 25th from 10am-1pm at the Hughes Center, an extentsion of our YMCA Camp Campbell Gard. Address for Camp – 4803 Augspurger Road, Hamilton, OH 45011. Specific directions available to Hughes Center.

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 April 25, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

The Y is all about more. The more support, guidance and opportunities we give kids…the more amazing qualities they’ll get out. The more they get out, the more they can achieve growing up. That’s why we provide kids a healthy, caring environment of fun, learning and belonging to help them reach their fullest potential.

And that’s why we celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our biggest day of the year devoted to kids and MORE!

Our YMCA website is www.gmvymca.org.
