PRLog - April 13, 2012 - THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF.--The Conejo Valley YMCA and Miller Family YMCA of Newbury Park are celebrating YMCA Healthy Kids Day, Saturday, April 28. The annual event is designed to bring attention to healthy lifestyle choices for children and families. Healthy Kids Day is free and runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Conejo Valley YMCA and 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Miller Y. The local YMCAs are joining more than 1,700 YMCAs nationwide that hold similar events every spring. Those attending will also be able to sign up for YMCA summer activities and camps during the day.

   Conejo Valley YMCA (4031 N. Moorpark Road, Thousand Oaks) serves Thousand Oaks,  Moorpark and Santa Rosa Valley. Its Healthy Kids Day will feature health-focused vendors, art and food projects for children, family zumba classes, a kids' boot camp workout, barbeque and healthy desserts.

   "Healthy Kids Day is a way for families to get excited and motivated about getting in shape and eating healthy," says Zak Howell, membership director at the Conejo Valley YMCA. "In many families, kids actually get less exercise in summer than during the school year. It's critical to keep children's minds and bodies active throughout the summer."

             At the Miller Family YMCA (320 Via Las Brisas, Newbury Park), families will enjoy fitness demonstrations and activities, tumbling, inflatable jumpers for kids, arts and crafts, music and give-a-ways. "Healthy Kids Day is a good time for Newbury Park residents to learn about the YMCA," says Kara Hensley, Miller Y's healthy living and aquatics director. "The Y is committed to helping families find fun ways to improve their health and well being."

   The YMCAs will offer tours of their facilities and provide information about summer options available to children. "Parents can sign up their kids to all our programs--day camps, resident camps and aquatics," says Beck.
