BCYF Family Gym is Back!

October 12, 2017

A free play program for families with children ages 3-8 to get up, out, and moving together.

The free Family Gym program from Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) is up and running for the fall season and Boston families are invited to join in! Family Gym is a free, weekly play program that promotes physical activity for children ages 3-8 and their families. The spring 2017 session of Family Gym was a great success. Families from neighborhoods across the City came together and engaged in fun, physically active games.  This fall, we hope to reach even more families.

Family Gym runs on Saturdays from 10-11:30 a.m. at:

Children and adults move at their own pace in supervised activities.  Colorful play equipment encourages individual, small, and large group play. Families can jump rope, play on an obstacle course, do the limbo, or play parachute games or sports. No pre-registration is required. But, caregivers must participate and remain in the gym with their children at all times. Thanks to a partnership with Northeastern University, student volunteers serve as Activity Leaders at Family Gym.
