Join the Challenge!

This month, join the Summer Out Loud challenge July 12-31. It’s designed to bring neighbors & families together with fun activities where everyone can participate.

 

Make a fitness video, invent a new game, visit someplace you’ve never been before or challenge yourself to eat five servings of fruits & vegetables. 

 

YMCA members and friends across the country will participate in the challenge with you and cheer your accomplishments.

 

Three local participants each week will win a YMCA prize pack of goodies. One local winner will receive a FREE YEAR OF MEMBERSHIP at the end of the challenge. And one national GRAND PRIZE winner will win a free family vacation!

Here’s What’s Happening at YMCA Camp Moody this Month

Pool Closures: Swim Camps & Swim Meets

 

We’ll be holding summer swim camp the week of July 5-9, so there will be no morning swim times available this week.

 

We’ll be closed on Saturday, July 10 for a swim meet.

 

Use your MotionVibe App to reserve a spot at one of our other pools like nearby Springs Family Y, Hays Communities Y or Southwest Family Y. 

 

National Parks Service Visit

 

Summer day campers at YMCA Camp Moody were treated to a visit from the National Parks Service this week. NPS staff led campers in activities like leaving no trace when enjoying nature, foraging for edible plants and identifying birds in the area.

Family Adventure Day

 

Come to YMCA Camp Moody on Saturday, July 17 from 5:00-8:30PM for family adventure day. Families can work together to compete in our static challenge course, rock wall, quick flight, slingshots, canoeing and a family game.

Food For Families This Summer 

 

Our friends at Brighter Bites are making sure families have nutritious food all summer long. Tuesdays at Palm Elementary and Wednesdays at Guerrero-Thompson Elementary, pick up a free box of produce from 4:00 - 6:30 PM

If you’d like to volunteer to distribute produce, signups are available at this link. It’s a perfect opportunity to cross some items off your Summer Out Loud challenge activity passport. Young people with community service requirements for high school and college can knock out some hours for a good cause.
