Waynesboro Family YMCA Hosts Mud Day

Posted: Updated:

Normally, children don't have the chance to play in the mud without getting into trouble. But at the Waynesboro Family YMCA Friday afternoon, adults hosted a Mud Day for them.

The campers, who ranged from 3 to 12 years old, had a great time running through a series of obstacle courses – and cooling off on a hot summer day.

The organizers put a trail of one ton of topsoil at the back parking lot of the Y and spread mud out over various pools and tarps. 

The childcare director, Rebecca Patton, said it was an activity the kids were really looking forward to.

"Mainly it's just for the kids to have fun, a little bit of exercise, not video games. Getting a little dirty and messy and just having fun," Patton said.

About 50 kids took part in the event. They also had the chance to dig through the mess to find hidden prizes.

Last year, the Y hosted a Mud Day for the preschoolers, but then the older kids wanted in on the fun.
