What is YMCA Adventure Guides and Adventure Princesses?  Adventures, experiences, and challenges that will play a special and unique role in the development of your child.  It is a Father-Child experience designed to help foster a lifetime of companionship to strengthen the relationship between children (Ages: K to 3rd grade) and parents. 

As an Adventure Guide or Princess, you and your daughter or son will join a unique "Circle" with whom you'll participate in games, camping trips, and ceremonies, while fostering a sense of self-esteem, personal worth, and quality family time.
