- Our YMCA
- Health & Fitness
We know that every summer, kids fall behind academically because they don't have access to learning opportunities and children gain body mass index (BMI) nearly twice as fast during the summer as during the school year.
To continue our commitment to teach healthy habits for kids and families, encourage physical and mental play, and inspire a lifetime love of exercise, the Rockland County YMCA is hosting Healthy Kids Day®from 12-4 on April 29thth
Healthy Kids Day is a FREE community event to help parents begin thinking early about ways to keep their kids both physically and intellectually active this summer.
It is the largest event of its kind in the nation, taking place at over 1,900 Ys who are committing to taking on summer in order to address critical gaps in health and education.
