The Adventure Guides and Princesses Programs are for fathers (uncles, grandfathers, male adult friends) and their sons (5-11 years), as well as fathers and their daughters (5-11 years). 

Through the Adventure Guides Program, parents* and children develop healthy relationships, gain a sense of belonging, and learn the importance of giving back to the community through one-on-one interactions, activities with other families, and community service projects. At the heart of the program are the Compass Points, which give members a sense of direction and an inspiration for activities:

  • Family. Family is “true north”—the focal point of the program.
  • Nature. The natural world and the camping experience are integral parts of the program.
  • Community. The spirit of the program is experienced through belonging to a small Community—the Circle.
  • Fun. Fun is the magic of the program. The Y’s core values—caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility—make up the other guiding principles of the program.
