As always, we want to thank you for sharing your children with us. The coaches learn as much from your children and family as we hope they learn from us. Despite all the challenges this year, you have been flexible and resilient, which benefits us all. Thank you for your continued support.

Healthy Kids Day

Event Start Date: April 24, 2021

At the Y, we know that kids and their caregivers faced countless challenges in 2020. As our community reopens, the YMCA is here for families, helping them recover both physically and mentally from a stress-filled year. That’s why the Rappahannock Area YMCA is hosting our annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 24th.

Healthy Kids Day provides an essential service to our communities by connecting families with activities and resources to help their children stay healthy and resilient during these difficult times.

Healthy Kids Day is a FREE OUTDOOR PHYSICALLY DISTANCED community event designed to provide parents and caregivers the key ingredients to help make a healthy kid. Activities will be offered at all of our branches! Now in its 29th year, it is the largest event of its kind in the nation.
