YMCA Adventure Guides is a family program designed to strengthen the relationship between a parent and a child by participating in family activities. Parents lead, direct, influence and teach while presenting opportunities for children to explore the world, while setting a foundation for positive, lifelong relationships between a parent and a child. Typical activities include games, crafts, stories, songs and outdoor pursuits such as camping in Yosemite, white water rafting, hiking, swimming, ice skating and more.
The 4 main direction points on the compass are the essential components of the program.
• The Family is True North - the focal point of the program.
• Nature and the camping experience are integral parts of the program.
• The spirit of the program is experienced through belonging to a small Community, called a Circle.
• Fun is the magic of the program.
The YMCA Core Values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility make up the other directional points. Along the journey, adults model, teach and demonstrate these values as well as give children opportunities to practice and celebrate them.
