Our Virtual Y

As we make our way through this difficult time, the Skagit Valley Family YMCA wants to ensure that we stay connected with our members and community.

We will do our best to keep offering some of the support, opportunities, and encouragement you have grown to expect from us.

To do that, our team has been working hard to create some fun resources for you to look forward to during this pause in our regular lives.

Check back regularly for new virtual programming that our team will be offering.

King Arthur Flour Bake for Good Kids

7/8/20 - 7/9/20

Welcome to our Virtual Y and King Arthur Flour’s Bake for Good Kids.  We are very excited to bring this program to the Skagit Valley. This is a 2 day program to give direction and bread time to rise then bake. It will consist of a video to watch, Baking kit (*flour, yeast, dough scrapper,bread bags, twist ties and a recipe booklet).  The perfect introduction to the science behind baking!

We will take a basic dough recipe and learn to make a basic loaf, a braided loaf, scrumptious cinnamon rolls, and several types of dinner rolls; even how to toss a personal-sized pizza! This all from the comfort of your home, so many options for you to do!

Pantry and basic household item’s you will need to have to accompany us in this baking process: salt, sugar, cooking oil, water, utensils & measuring tools, bowls, baking pans, oven, refrigerator, clean towel & plastic wrap

With every registration, you will receive one baking kit.

Kit Includes 1- 2-pound packages white whole wheat flour, 1-package yeast, dough scraper, recipe booklet, Bread tote, and plastic bread bag and tie.* You will notice the recipe calls for white flour, King Arthur ran out so only whole wheat will be included. Feel free to supplement with your own white flour or use all whole wheat.

We will be using a Zoom meeting to watch the video together so please make sure you set up your zoom account and have WiFi. You can use a phone to do this with the Zoom app. Please do not share this link with anyone. Only registered participants, please.

*You will be able to pick up your baking kit with our limited contact curbside pick up in front of the YMCA. Please check your email for pick up times for kits, after you are registered.

REACH YOUR WELLNESS GOALS WITH US

“The program is different from other programs in which I have participated in that there was no pressure to ‘lose weight NOW’. Weight loss and health is the ultimate goal not the quick fix. This program gave me things to think about. I know I should be ‘eating right and exercising’ but why don’t I? This program gave me insights into my behavior by asking very simple questions.”
