Find Your Fun, Find Your Y at Healthy Kids Day!

April 22, 2023by Becky Merritt

The YMCA of Greater Providence is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on April 29, 2023. 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 several 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 Y Swim Lessons

Each year the Y teaches hundreds of children to swim. This helps them find their CONFIDENCE, teaches a lifelong skill and introduces them to lifelong fun. Visit our website to learn more about Y swim lessons.

Find Your Adventure with Y Summer Camp

Summer is a time for kids to explore new things and expand the limits of their imagination. At the YMCA of Greater Providence, every day is a new adventure! Whether experiencing the wonder of Camp Fuller by the Sea or having a blast with new friends at one of our four summer day camps, many children and teens find their ADVENTURE with the Y.

Find your Passion with Y Sports

Youth sports are just the start of something bigger– besides teaching healthy living principles, they also teach the value of teamwork, help fuel determination and build character. At the YMCA of Greater Providence we have dozens of sports programs to help keep children active while igniting their PASSION for something greater.
