Miami County YMCA to hold ‘Easter Egg Splash’ event

TROY — The annual Easter Egg Splash for the Miami County YMCA Robinson Branch is set for March 28.

The “hunt” itself will take place in the small pool of the facility following pictures with the Easter bunny in the main gym.

“The event is for ages 6 and under and we ask parents to get in with their little ones,” Leia Lander, aquatic director for the Robinson branch, said. “It’s a fun way for some of the younger kids to hunt for eggs while acclimating to the water!”

The event on March 28 will be divided into three sections this year in order to accommodate social distancing requirements. Participants may sign up for a 1:30 p.m., 2 p.m., or 2:30 p.m. time slot. Due to limited space, pre-registration is required. The event is free for members and $5 for nonmembers. Those with additional questions are asked to contact Leia Lander at 937-440-9622 or

“The (Easter) splash event is also a great way for families to see what all the Y has to offer,” Lander said. “If you aren’t familiar with our facility or programs it’s a great time to check it out and gain information about what other events we have coming up in the spring and summer!”
