Families - CKW YMCA


Get Active as a Family

Exercising together brings families together.  It gives parents and children the opportunity to have meaningful conversations and really get to know one another.  Parents often don't recognize the power they have to model healthy behaviour to their children.  When parents and kids are active together, it gives them a common sense of purpose and a goal.  Exercise benefits both of them in spirit, mind and body.
