Kishwaukee Family YMCA – Healthy Kids Day

The Kishwaukee Family YMCA is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on April 13th at 1:00pm located at 2500 N. Bethany Rd, Sycamore IL. 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 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!
