by YMCA YMCA Marketing | May 09, 2017

The YMCA of the Capital Area welcomes community members to spend Father’s Day with their dads at the Y. Seven YMCA locations will be open to the public on Sunday, June 18, for dads and their children to utilize its facilities. Kids and their dads can shoot hoops, swim or even get some exercise in. There will also be free arts and crafts available for those looking to get creative.

On Sunday, June 18, the YMCA of the Capital Area joins the nation in celebrating Father’s Day and recognizing the impact fathers and adult male role models make in children’s lives. A leading nonprofit in fostering positive youth development, the Y remains dedicated to providing resources and opportunities for fathers to further involve themselves in the well-being and development of their children.  

“Father’s Day is about celebrating dad, but also recognizing the importance of children growing up with involved, responsible, and committed fathers and adult male role models,” said Kristen Hogan, Marketing Director, YMCA of the Capital Area. “Father’s Day reminds us why it’s important to provide fathers with the support they need to be the best parents and caregivers they can be.”
