YMCA of the USA has designed the YMCA Adventure Guides program to assist parents and their children on a journey of discovery. While activities with the whole family are important, we see tremendous value in supporting and strengthening the ability of a parent and his or her child to communicate at an early age in ways that are caring, honest, respectful, and responsible. We work to encourage parents to get to know your kid while your kid is still a kid.
For these reasons, we have designed the program for one parent and one child to participate together for most activities. If this dynamic is not practical for certain families, we will be flexible and work with you to develop a structure within the program that accommodates your needs.
