The YMCA of Greater Seattle is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on April 20 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at 12 locations. 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.

Find Your Swimming Skills with Swim Lessons

Each year the Y teaches thousands of children to swim. This helps them find their CONFIDENCE, teaches a lifelong skill, and introduces them to safety around water. Visit to learn more about swim lessons.

Find Your Adventure with Summer Camp

Summer is a time for kids to explore new things and expand the limits of their imagination. At
the Y, every day is a new adventure! Whether experiencing the wonder of Camp Orkila or Camp Colman or having a blast with new friends at summer day camp, many kids and teens find their ADVENTURE with the Y. Visit to learn more about Y summer camp.

Find your Passion with Sports

Youth sports are just the start of something bigger– aside from teaching fundamental skills,
they also teach the value of teamwork, help fuel determination, and build character. At the Y, we have a variety of sports programs to help keep children active while igniting their PASSION for something greater. Visit to learn more about sports.

Find Your Voice with Teen Programs

We believe young people have the power to change the world. Our teen and young adult
programs are designed to help young people develop the skills and confidence they need to
lead positive change and find their VOICE in the Northwest and beyond. Visit to learn more about teen programs.

Find Your Curiosity with Enrichment Programs

Our Kids Create, Kids in the Kitchen, and STEM programs include activities that help inspire wonder about the world around us. Guiding children to find their CURIOSITY is key to helping them reach their full potential. Visit to learn more about enrichment programs.
