PARENTS AND CHILDREN AGES 5-12
As a member of YMCA Adventure Guides, you will have the opportunity to develop a stronger relationship with your child by joining a unique crew with whom you’ll participate in activities like games, camping trips, fun ceremonies, outings, and other family adventures. Throughout this journey, the Adventure Guides and Adventure Princesses compass points — family, nature, community, and fun will provide a sense of direction and inspiration that will help strengthen the bond between adult and child. The program runs from September through May. Join at anytime.
Adventure Guides emphasizes the profound teaching role of the parent, a focus on community and giving back, the magic of nature, and most of all, having fun. At the heart of the program are the Compass Points, which form the essential components of the program:
- Family: The family is “True North”—the focal point of Adventure Guides
- Nature: The natural world and camping experiences are integral parts of the program.
- Community: The spirit of the program is experienced through belonging to a small community, called a Circle.
- Fun: The magic of the program is having fun together
