Join the YMCA for a week full of healthy activities

There’s a lot going on at the YMCA of Coastal Georgia this week, open house, pool openings, healthy kids activities, membership special and more…

This Saturday, May 4th, YMCA of Coastal Georgia branches will host their Open Houses and grand opening of their outdoor pools. This is also the start of the one week only no joiner’s fee membership special! New Y members can take advantage of no joiner’s fee May 4-11th. With summer just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to join!

This day also serves as the kickoff to a weeklong of Healthy Kids events and activities going on at every YMCA of Coastal Georgia branch, all leading up to the 2nd annual Y Kids Run Day in Daffin Park May 11th.

Healthy Kids Day, a national initiative of the Y to improve the health and well-being of kids, is filled with fun, active play and educational activities that will help parents improve their kids’ lifestyles for the long term. Research shows that without access to activities that stimulate the mind and body, kids are more prone to gain weight and fall behind academically over the summer months.

More than 1,900 Ys across the country are taking part in the celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer – a critical out-of-school time for kids.

The Y’s national event will take place at all YMCA of Coastal Georgia branches throughout the week and feature different activities daily such as healthy snacks, family activities, classic field day events, and the grand opening of our pools for the summer for all kids and families in the coastal Georgia area to take part in. 

We hope to see you at this free community event Saturday, which promises to be a fun time for all involved. To locate a branch near you to find out more about the weeklong festivities visit
