Kick off June with a focus on fun and health!

YMCA Healthy Kids Day helps youth and families explore healthy living habits.

June 1 is just around the corner, and the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is gearing up to celebrate our annual YMCA Healthy Kids Day.

Designed to help kids and families embrace healthy habits that can become a lifelong practice, this free community event will focus on fun and engaging activities, practical information and simple ways to be healthier in spirit, mind and body.

YMCA Healthy Kids Day

Across Canada, most children do not meet recommended levels of daily physical activity. Rising rates of obesity and related chronic disease tell us that getting kids active should be a top priority for parents, schools, and all Canadians.

As the foundation and future of our communities, My Y recognizes that our children’s health is needs to remain important to us. Our programs aim to show families, children and youth that making healthy choices can be fun and easy.

Although My Y models and incorporates healthy practices into its programs and activities for children and youth year round, YMCA Healthy Kids Day places special emphasis on teaching children, youth and their families about exploring healthy living habits that will make a difference throughout the year.
