Awaken Summer Imagination at Healthy Kids Day on April 27

Awaken Summer Imagination at YMCA Healthy Kids Day on April 27

Free Community Event

Lancaster, PA – Research shows that without access to physical activities and enrichment opportunities during the summer, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast. To support parents in helping their children learn, grow and thrive all summer long, the Lancaster Family YMCA will be hosting Healthy Kids Day on April 27.

YMCA Healthy Kids Day events are free and open to anyone in the community. The day will include family and kids activities, summer camp resources and Safety Around Water classes for children.

Before heading to the beaches, lakes or pools this summer, parents need to make sure their kids have the swimming and water safety skills to stay safe. Safety Around Water classes offered during Healthy Kids Days are geared towards children who have not had previous swimming or water safety instruction and cannot jump into the water and exit on their own. These classes are offered free of cost to children through age 12 and parents will receive an assessment of their child’s current skill level and needs. Advanced registration for Safety Around Water classes is required and can be completed at www.lancasterymca.org/healthykidsday.
