KAMLOOPS — Teens are in for a workout treat.

The Kamloops YMCA is offering free memberships for teens ages 13 to 18 years olds all summer long at its North Shore and South Shore location.

A 2016 ParticipACTION Report Card gave Canadian kids a D- grade when it comes to physical activity.

The report shows less than nine percent of children are getting the recommended one hour of physical activity a day. 

The hope is the free YMCA membership will encourage teens to get active and meet new friends at the same time.

The free program runs July 1 until August 31.
