Healthy Kids Day brings family fun to town


WAYNESBORO—The YMCA Kicks Off Summer with the Annual Healthy Kids Day Event featuring a full day of activities to celebrate kids being kids on Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Y.

Healthy Kids Day will feature games, arts and crafts, swimming, and information about upcoming summer programs to motivate and teach families how to develop and maintain healthy routines, plus fun, active play and educational activities, plus a bounce house from Strouse Entertainment.

Healthy Kids Day is a fun, free community-wide event to kick off summer and remind us all how important it is for kids to stay active physically and mentally throughout the summer. Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022, Healthy Kids Day is the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families. The Y hopes to use the day to get more kids moving and learning, creating healthy habits they can continue while they’re away from the classroom.

When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. With all that’s going on in the world right now, Healthy Kids Day is a reminder to families that we can help ensure all children have access to what they need to reach their full potential, even during out-of-school time.

The Waynesboro Area YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day takes place at the Y from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, contact the Waynesboro Area YMCA at 717-762- 6012 or visit
