Oakville YMCA


At the YMCA, we believe children need opportunities to be engaged in their community to grow up healthy and strong. Through events like YMCA Healthy Kids Day, we give families the chance to belong and discover what it means to be healthy, active individuals.

On Sunday, June 3 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA will be hosting our annual FREE community event. Strengthen your family bond through family fitness, creativity and learning new skills. Connect with your community, find a place to belong and discover all that the YMCA has to offer.

Beginning at 10:45 am, register for the 1,000,000 step challenge! Collect your YMCA passport and pedometer and get stepping! According to the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines, a healthy day is comprised of four categories: Sweat, Step, Sleep and Sit. Throughout the event, visit activities in each category to learn what you can do as a family to have a healthy day, every day. Don’t forget to record your number of steps on your passport and submit it for a chance to win amazing prizes!

We have partnered with many local agencies and organizations to provide activities for all ages, including:

Massive Tank Studios
The local professional recording studio has worked with Community Living Oakville and Mind Forward Brain Injury Services to bring a band program to clients with both developmental delays and acquired brain injuries. Playing outdoors from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, check out the CLO Rep Band, The Wednesdays, The Rehabs, Matteo Esposito & more!

Oakville Galleries Sticker Station
Do you like making art? Join Oakville Galleries outdoors to make artwork that you can stick wherever you want! Each participant will create a small drawing then turn it into a sticker with a hand-cranked sticker machine.

Mission Possible Escape Rooms presents: Immunity Quest
Your tribe has been placed on a deserted island and must work as a team to solve puzzles and riddles while searching for the God of Immunity mask. Work together as a family to find the God of Immunity mask before time is up!

What is Mother Earth Saying to Us?
Hosted by Grandmother Renee
As an Haudenosaunee Woman, her walk in life is to share awareness and the uplifting of the spirit through the teachings of Our Mother, the Earth and the Understanding of the Good Mind.

OBA Cares
Just like children need to learn to read and write, they also need to learn to move with competence and confidence across a variety of movements, giving them the tools required to be active for life. OBA Cares is designed to teach fundamental movement and basic basketball skills while developing physical literacy in young athletes.

And so many more! Our full Activity Schedule is available at ymcaofoakville.org/HKD2018
