Healthy Kids Day is a free event open to the community that’s designed to inspire kids’ creativity, awaken their imaginations, and encourage them to stay active.

Following a year of social distancing, virtual school, mask wearing and endless hours of screen time, the Manatee County Family YMCA is hosting their annual Healthy Kids Day® on April 24th, encouraging families to take a moment to help kids be kids. While the in-person event will feature physically distanced activities and be in accordance with CDC and state/local recommendations, the Y aims to provide a carefree day for children, celebrating what makes a kid, a healthy kid. The day-long event will feature activities such as games, arts and crafts, competitions, and physical fitness activities to motivate and teach families how to develop and maintain healthy routines at home.

The Manatee County Family YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day takes place at both the Lakewood Ranch and West Bradenton Branches from 10:00am-2:00pm and features fun, active play and educational activities.

Our in-person activities for Healthy Kids Day will be conducted in a clean and fun environment. Y team members will attempt to host as many activities outdoors to promote an even safer atmosphere. For indoor activities, we’ll follow our safety procedures currently in place that are in alignment with local and federal guidelines.
