The M.E. Lyons YMCA Adventure Guides and Princesses program helps develop positive relationships between fathers and their children in grades K through six.  Tribes are formed around school and neighborhood groupings with six to ten parent/child couples. Tribes meet monthly, September through May. Under the guidance of their dads, kids have the freedom to explore their interests in a creative and imaginative way. Regular meetings combine ceremony and programming, which includes crafts, games, or storytelling. The central theme of the program draws upon the culture of the Native American Indian to help promote a positive and lasting relationship between parents and children. Monthly events are held for all program participants, including campouts, roller skating, bowling, pinewood derby, and much more.
