Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We are a place they can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them. We desire for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve a greater work/life balance, and become more engaged within the community.
A couple of our family-friendly programs include:
Y GUIDES AND PRINCESSES
Y Guides and Princesses, formerly Adventure Guides, encourages fathers and their children to spend uninterrupted time together as members of a larger group, building lifelong memories and bonds. Through activities such as weekend camping trips, games, ceremonies and family adventures, dad and child will create memories that neither will ever forget.
Through Y Guides and Princesses the YMCA provides the following benefits to father and child:
Foster companionship and understanding and set a foundation for positive, lifelong relationships between father and child
Build a sense of self-esteem and personal worth
Provide a framework to meet a mutual need of spending enjoyable, constructive, and quality time together
Enhance the quality of family time
Emphasize the vital role parents play in the growth and development of their children
Offer an important and unique opportunity to develop & enjoy volunteer leadership skills
Opportunity to meet other families with children the same age
We believe the values and skills learned at an early age are vital building blocks for life. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
