Jump Into Foods and Fitness (JIFF) is a research-based curriculum that features eight “Kangaroo Jumps” or sessions that help kids ages 8 to 11 (grades 3 to 5) learn the importance of nutrition, increased physical activity and food safety.

Jiff the Joey invites kids and teen volunteers to experience a fun way to a healthier lifestyle! Children will participate in fun new physical fitness and nutrition activities while they:

  • Increase strength, flexibility and endurance
  • Taste new foods
  • Prepare tasty snacks
  • Learn how to keep foods safe

Most of all kids will have fun while they jump, learn and run!


This is a closed program for YMCA summer campers.
