MDI YMCA Healthy Kids Day Recap!

Our theme this year is Learn, Grow, Thrive!

Healthy Kids Day at the Mount Desert Island YMCA was a huge success! The beautiful spring day started off with a 1-mile fun run and walk at 9:00 am where 70 children took part with parents, older siblings, and pets with strollers and scooters in tow. Our activity fair included activities from Acadia National Park, Volta, Friends of Acadia, Guy's Dance Party, Arra Landscaping, Caring Hands of Maine Dental, MDI High School Interact Club, UMaine Cooperative Extension of Hancock County, Geddy's, and Hannaford. After the learning, planting, and dancing were through it was time to unveil our new Wibit Inflatable Obstacle Course in the pool for children ages 6 and up. Check out the time-lapse of the pool party!
