YMCA Virtual Check-In

It's so important to stick to your regular routine as much as possible while at home. Wake up and go to bed as you usually would, eat at regular meal times, and continue working out with the Y! Scan in everyday and get your workout in at home. This is especially crucial for our insurance based members, be sure to check in everyday and utilize our fitness videos and tutorials!

If you have more than one Y member in your household, you can each "scan in" individually by filling out your own form with your own separate bar code each day.

Stay Health-Y Scan Challenge!

It is important now, more than ever, that we continue to come together as a Y movement to remain connected and foster a sense of community. With that being said, our wellness team has created an all-new, virtual scan challenge, Stay Health-Y, for members to keep moving and be active in ways that may have never been thought of before while at home.

Here's how it works:

  • This scan challenge will run for 21 days from 3/30-4/20.
  • Participants will fill out a new web form to scan in and log points each day.
  • One minute of activity is equivalent to one point.
  • Track and complete at least 400 minutes of activity on a web form page throughout the course of 21 days (3/30-4/20) - that's only 20 minutes per day! 
  • Compete with Y members to see who can rack up the most points and scans - the individual with the most scans and points at the end of the 30 days wins!

What you need to know:

  • You will need to click the link below to scan in and log your points each day.
  • You will need submit a NEW web form EVERY DAY to scan in and track your activity and points.
  • Participants can only scan in once a day. Keep in mind that if you do not scan in, your points will not count for that specific day as backlogging will not be allowed.

How to Practice Mindfulness at Home

Mindfulness, or the ability to be present and composed when confronting the challenges of our busy lives, can benefit anyone of any age. Practicing mindfulness can help relieve stress and anxiety in children, while promoting happiness, writes the New York Times. New research also suggests that mindfulness can boost learning skills in early childhood, such as attentiveness, memory, ability to focus, problem solving and behavior.

The YMCA provides several ways families can help kids use mindfulness at home.

STEAM Learning at Home

Children are learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math, or STEAM for short, from the day they are born, by exploring their surroundings to understanding cause-and-effect relationships. Learning and practicing STEAM fosters a child’s ingenuity and creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. It also helps to build their resiliency and self-confidence.

Supporting STEAM doesn't mean your child has to build robots in their bedroom. Here are some easy ways to involve these concepts in everyday activities and interactions.
