Father & Daughter
As a member of YMCA Adventure Princesses, 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.
The purpose of the YMCA Adventure Guides/Princess Program is to foster companionship between a parent and a child. This program is designed for dads to spend quality time with their daughter(s) one on one doing activities like campouts, daddy daughter dance, pinewood derby races, and other fun events throughout the year. Once a month, each circle will have a monthly meeting at a circle member’s house or school and do an activity with their children. Several circles make up an Expedition. Several times a year the Expeditions will have special events. We have two expeditions that make up our Federation. The Princess Expedition is for dads and daughters in PK-6 grade and the Guides Expedition is for dads and sons in PK-6 grade.
