Over 50 activities, healthy snacks, heart-pumping entertainment…FREE and open to all!

Active kids are needed more than ever.

YMCA Healthy Kids Day brings families together to engage in fun, active play, and learn healthier habits to help them grow and thrive. The 2016 Participation Report Card on physical activity for children and youth reported that only 9 per cent of 5-17 year olds get the recommended 60 minutes of heart-pumping activity they need each day. Let’s change this together!

Connecting families to healthy resources strengthens the community.

The Okanagan is rich in non-profit and business organizations who work each day to better our community’s future. YMCA Healthy Kids Day is one day where all activity partners, sponsors and volunteers pour their energy into children’s health—building the foundation of a healthy community today and tomorrow.

Being active must be accessible to all.

The Y believes that no one should be turned away because they can’t afford the full fee to participate. At YMCA Healthy Kids Day, everything from the park and pool activities to snacks is free to everyone. Check back later to download your free transit pass to and from the event one month prior to the event.

Please contact Erica Marshall if you would like to sponsor this event.
