BANGOR – Staying at home all day can be boring for kids. Playgrounds in the Bangor and Brewer area are blocked off to promote social distancing.
The Bangor Region YMCA is helping family members of any age get up and move to maintain a healthy lifestyle during this time. They’re bring the Y to your living room with a virtual YMCA.
For little ones, the website offers a full day’s length of activities such as science experiments, arts and crafts and virtual family outings.
A teen center is available and instructors are posting workout classes for any age. All can be done from home.
“We have such an impact every single day on so many people so we were so concerned that, ‘What are they going to do with our Y being closed?'” said CEO Diane Dickerson.
Dickerson said new videos and activities are posted throughout the week so there is always something new to do.
