Adventure Guides


YMCA parent-child programs are the YMCAs oldest and most successful programs for families. In 2003, Ys across the country introduced a new take on a long-standing program (Indian Guides / Indian Princesses), calling it YMCA Adventure Guides. The primary goal of Adventure Guides is to strengthen the bond between a parent and a child with a focus on the “compass points” of family, nature, community and fun. Small groups called Circles meet on a regular basis, usually biweekly or monthly. Occasionally, several Circles come together to participate in larger activities such as campouts, parties, or parades. These outings are called Expeditions. The core of the YMCA Adventure Guides program is these Circle and Expedition meetings and adventures. Typical activities include ceremonies, games, crafts, songs, stories, skits, and outdoor pursuits such as camping, hiking, and swimming.
