Children playing a game with a playground associate

Elementary school-aged children often gain weight over the summer due to a lack of structured, active, outdoor play. Kids In Motion gets children in NYC “off the couch” and into playgrounds to get fit while having fun. Sedentary children are likely to become sedentary adults, but by introducing children to physical activity in a fun, non-competitive environment, Kids in Motion can help them achieve and maintain an active lifestyle through adulthood. Kids in Motion staff (Playground Associates) lead four to seven hours of free activities for children per day, including organized sports, games, fitness demos, guided walks, board games, water games and more!
