About

Indian Guides and Indian Princesses have undergone a name change. The program is now called Adventure Guides & Adventure Princesses
Get to know your kid, while your kid is still a kid!

As the parent of a young child, you have the tremendous opportunity to get to know your child. Spending quality one-on-one time with your child will help build a strong bond of trust and memories that will last a lifetime. Join the Y and become a member of a community that’s committed every day to helping you and your family grow stronger together.

YMCA Core Values

The YMCA Core Values provide direction as parents guide children on their journey. Along the journey, adults should model, teach, and demonstrate these values as well as give children many opportunities to practice and celebrate them. Initially, these four values provide guidance in helping children select activities, make decisions, and choose appropriate courses of action both in the program in and in their lives.

  • Caring
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Responsibility

  • Family

    The Family is True North – the focal point of the program

  • Nature

    Nature and the camping experience are an integral part of the program

  • Community

    The spirit of the program is experienced through belonging to a small Community called a circle

  • Fun

    Fun is the magic of the program

Circles

The circle is the program's basic group unit, providing a structure, sense of community, and support for all group activities. Adventure Guides meet in circles about once a month, in addition to participation in Expedition adventures (campouts, etc.) throughout the year. Monthly meetings consist of, but are not limited to, arts and crafts, songs, and stories, and are planned by the circle leader (the navigator) or they can create a schedule to share the responsibilities among all of the circle members.
