Find Your Fun, Find Your Y at Healthy Kids Day!
The Keene Family YMCA is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 29th from 1-5pm at their facility located at 200 Summit Road in Keene. This free, annual event features a variety of family-friendly activities to encourage healthy kids, healthy families and a healthy start to the summer season.
In celebration of this annual kick-off to summer, we are sharing a list of five activities that we encourage you to share with your kids. The goal is to have them try something new at the Y by promoting a variety of opportunities to get involved in active play – hopefully, this will inspire a lifetime love of physical and mental activity! Share these opportunities with your children and inspire them to “find their fun” by discovering an activity that they love!
Find Your Swimming Skills with YMCA Swim Lessons
Each year the Y teaches more than 800 children to swim. This helps them find their CONFIDENCE, teaches a lifelong skill and introduces them to lifelong fun. Click here to learn more about Y swim lessons.

MYC hosts events, conducts focus group discussions, and lends a youth focus to the issues affecting our community. They also work towards educating their peers and the community about youth substance use. Click here to learn more about the Monadnock Youth Coalition.
