The Keene Family YMCA is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 27 from 10:00 am-4:00 pm 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.

This year, we’ve partnered with the Keene Sentinel to bring their annual health fair, For the Health of It! and Healthy Kids Day all under one roof. You’ll have a chance to experience a little bit of everything the Y has to offer. You’ll also get to meet other local organizations that provide a wide variety of family and youth programs and services and attend a variety of demos and workshops.

You must sign-up in advance at the registration table to participate in the Gymnastics Obstacle Course. The course will run in 15-minute sessions, max 16 participants per session. All other activities are first come, first served. Participants should report to the specified location within the specified timeframe to participate. Please note there may be a wait period – please plan accordingly!

In celebration of this annual kick-off to summer, we are sharing a list of five activities that we encourage you to introduce to your kids. The goal is to have them try something new 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 activities with your children and inspire them to “find their fun” by discovering an activity that they love!
