Every Spring, we love welcoming the community for YMCA Healthy Kids Day, a fun-filled day of interactive games and activities that get you moving together as a family!

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can’t welcome you in person like we intended. But we’re still dedicated to improving the health and well-being of kids and families across Canada.

We’re working on ways to present YMCA Healthy Kids Day in new or different ways so we can celebrate with you once again this year.

Stay tuned to this page for updates, or check with your local YMCA:

At the YMCA we believe that:

  • Every child deserves the opportunity to lead a healthy life
  • Children need opportunities to be engaged in their community to grow up healthy and strong
  • Healthy families are supported families

We know that it’s essential to provide families with opportunities to connect with others through programs and events such as YMCA Healthy Kids Day, child care, camps, and recreation because of the positive impact on their children’s learning, growth, and development.

When kids have the opportunity to belong, to be themselves and to succeed, they build confidence, get engaged and become empowered to be the person they were meant to be.

We can’t do it alone. No one can.
