Y Adventure Guides assists the parent and school-age child on a journey of discovery. While activities with the whole family are important, there is tremendous value in supporting and strengthening the ability of a parent and their child to communicate at an early age. Y Adventure Guides can be for one parent and child or the entire family. Typical activities include camping, group games, arts & crafts, songs, story telling, skits, hiking, swimming, fishing, canoeing, archery, and other special events like the pinewood derby or daddy/daughter dance. Each parent/child pair joins a "Circle" of other dads & their kids. These Circles try to meet at least once a month for group bonding and to plan the group's events. Circle members typically all attend the same YMCA campout in the fall and spring, in addition to participating in other YMCA events together throughout the school year.
