CONNECTING DAUGHTERS & DADS

The Y Guides Program offers Dads and their Daughters, 1st-3rd grade, the opportunity to create lifelong memories together. Each grade year has a specific focus for the tribe. Participants and the fathers will get a vest the 1st year, as a 3 year long physical scrapbook of their time together!

  • 1st Year: Bonding with Dad
  • 2nd Year: Together with my Tribe
  • 3rd Year: Giving Back

Parent-child pairs meet in small groups called tribes. Each tribe gathers once a month to hold meetings, hosted by a different Dad each month. There will also be a fun outing each month that incorporates a variety of recreational and educational activities focused on nature, community and family. Participants have the opportunity to earn awards/patches for their vest signifying accomplishments achieved together. 

Register by October 31st!

Fees: $70/Y Members; $80 Non-Members
