HEALTHY KIDS BUILD HEALTHY COMMUNITIES!
Did you know that just by asking “How are you feeling today?” you can boost your child’s mood and confidence? At YMCA Healthy Kids Day, we focus on how to maintain a healthy mind, body and spirit all year long. We encourage you to come out and have a fun afternoon together as a family. Learn the easy techniques you can work together and make each day a little healthier.

WE PROMOTE PHYSICAL LITERACY!
The YMCA understands that physical literacy is an important part of a child's healthy development. When children acquire and practice fundamental movement and sport skills at a young age, they are more likely to stay active and maintain healthy habits in adulthood. Aligned with the Canadian Sport for Life's Long Term Athlete Development Framework (CS4L LTAD), all YMCA programs provide children and youth the opportunity to practice and improve their physical literacy skills developing movement confidence and competence to be "Active for Life."
