Adventure Guides & Trailblazers
“Being a father is the greatest privilege given to any man.” — Monk Mulligan
The YMCA’s Adventure Guides program has been providing opportunities for fathers and their children ages 5-8 along with its partner program Trailblazers for fathers and their children ages 9-13 to develop strong relationships through positive experiences since 1925.
The Adventure Guides are father/child pairs who are grouped into Expeditions of six to ten dads and their kids from the surrounding community. Expeditions meet monthly for a 90-minute meeting. Expeditions take part in monthly Federation Events. Events include two campouts at YMCA Camp Greenville, family cookouts, a father/child cake bake/chili cook-off, and a father-daughter semi-formal Valentine’s dance. The commitment is small: one 90-minute Expedition meeting and one event a month. The payoff is huge!
