Health & Wellness

A Lifetime of Healthy Habits are Made at the Y

Kids become physically stronger, have more endurance, and experience a sense of joy and fun through play by participating in YMCA Youth Fitness and Wellness Programs. They establish meaningful relationships and a supportive community of friends, which encourages a sustained commitment to health and fosters a sense of achievement and heightened self-confidence. Kids in YMCA Youth Fitness and Wellness Programs are in charge of their own physical fitness and well-being, and they know how to make healthy choices that last throughout a lifetime.

Our Health & Wellness programs change seasonally.
