YMCA KidsThe Y Kids Academy combines physical activity with healthy living lessons and is available at no cost to kids aged 10-12 years.

Healthy Habits Start Early – Y Kids Academy:  Grade 6 Initiative

This fall, the YMCA-YWCA is taking things one step further by inviting ALL local grade six students in the National Capital Region – a priority group of children who generally experience decreasing activity levels – to participate at no cost in the Y Kids Academy. The Academy’s 12 hour program provides kids with instruction on strength training complimented by interactive healthy living lessons to highlight the benefits of being active and making positive, healthy choices.  Once successfully completed, the grade six students will receive a complimentary membership to the Y for one year, so they can stay active and practice their newly learned skills.
