Adventure Guides & Trailblazers

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 Tribes of six to ten dads and their kids from the surrounding community. Tribes meet monthly for different activities that help build strong bonds between dads and daughters. Tribes take part in monthly Federation Events. Events include two campouts at YMCA Camp Greenville, family movie night, a father/child cake bake/chili cook-off, and a father-daughter semi-formal Valentine’s dance. The commitment is small: one 90-minute Tribe meeting and one event a month. The payoff is huge!
