One Plastic Bag: An Earth Day reading at the Creekside Classroom

Children and their families are invited to the Creekside Classroom at Saratoga Spa State Park on Earth Day (Sunday, April 22nd from 11 AM - 12 PM) to help end plastic pollution. Plastic is threatening our planet’s survival and together we can change that. Join us for a reading of “One Plastic Bag” a story of how five Gambian women sparked a movement to save their village from the negative effects of plastic waste, followed by a craft showing how we can reuse our own plastic waste as well. This program is free and appropriate for ages 5-9. Registration is required. Please call 518-584-2000 ext. 111 to register. Please bring your plastic (shopping) bags with you for the craft.

Healthy Kids Day is THIS Saturday!

On Saturday, April 21, the Saratoga Regional YMCA is holding a free community event to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active at the annual YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families. Healthy Kids Day is an opportunity to ignite children’s imaginations so that they can imagine what they’ll accomplish this summer.  The event will feature activities such as a family fun run, pool time, games, bounce houses, food trucks, family focused vendors, time on our new adventure course and much more!

Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at over 1,500 Ys across the country by over 1.2 million participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits that they continue all summer long. As spring turns to summer, Healthy Kids Day is a powerful reminder not to let children idle away their summer days. Instead, the Y wants families to focus on helping children imagine what they can accomplish over the summer. 

“When a child is healthy, happy, and supported they can make great things happen. We believe in the potential of all children, and we strive to help kids find that potential within themselves. A child’s development is never on vacation and Healthy Kids Day is a great opportunity to educate families and motivate kids to stay active in spirit, mind and body throughout the summer,” said Andrew Bobbitt, CEO of the Saratoga Regional YMCA.

The SRYMCA’s Healthy Kids Day takes place at their Saratoga Springs branch from 11am-3pm.
