K.E.E.P (Kids Education & Exercise Program)
The Y’s Kids Exercise and Education Program (K.E.E.P.) provides structured education and activity in a safe, supportive, and encouraging environment for youth ages 7 through 14 and their families.
Research has long shown that children who are obese are likely to become obese adults. By helping children develop knowledge and skills to adopt healthy exercise and nutrition habits with the support of a parent, we can help intervene and stop the downward, often out-of-control cycles that cause unhealthy lifestyles.
Facilitated by a trained and experienced staff member, this 90-minute class teaches skills critical for adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Referral is required: talk with your pediatrician to see if K.E.E.P. is right for you!
