SUMMIT, NJ - Kids got some pent up energy from being 'shut-in' during the winter months? The Summit Area YMCA is allowing children to enjoy open-play in their spacious indoor gymnasium through a eight-week session beginning January 4.

The 'indoor playground' is a great opportunity for children to get physical activity when it’s too chilly or inclement to do so outside! It also provides a chance to meet neighbors and quality social time.

The Summit Y's open gym program, which runs from 10:15 - 11 a.m. through February 22, will be filled with balls, hula hoops, riding toys, obstacle courses and more. Participants can even bring a snack to enjoy in the lobby with their friends.
