The purpose of the YMCA Adventure Guides Program is to foster companionship between a parent and a child. This program is designed for dads to spend quality time with their children one on one doing activities like campouts, hayrides and pine derby car races. Dads and children are organized into circles with other dads and children from their neighborhood areas. Once a month, each circle will have a monthly meeting at a circle member’s house or school and do an activity with their children. Several circles make up an Expedition. Several times a year the Expeditions will have special events. We have two expeditions that make up our Federation. The Princess Expedition is for dads and daughters in K-6 grade and the Guides Expedition is for dads and sons in K-6 grade.
