YMCA of Coastal Carolina sets kids up for success for summer at Healthy Kids Day

Free and open to the public, this annual event features a day of fun-filled activities to celebrate kids being kids.

The YMCA of Coastal Carolina is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on April 29, 2023 from 10am – 1pm at all three branch locations in Myrtle Beach, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown. 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.

About Healthy Kids Day

Healthy Kids Day is the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids and families. For over 30 years, YMCAs across the country bring their members, kids, and community together by moving and learning, creating healthy habits they can continue while they’re away from the classroom during our annual Healthy Kids Day! Following a year filled with numerous changes and uncertainty, Healthy Kids Day is a reminder to families that we can help ensure all children have access to the key ingredients to reach their full potential, even during out-of-school time
