Following a successful launch event at the North Suburban YMCA last month, the Y’s Adventure Guides program has scheduled a series of overnight campouts in October. Open to fathers with children ages 5-9, Adventure Guides events promote bonding between dads and kids while also introducing men to new social networks.
Adventure Guides brings together father/child pairs organized by schools or communities. The newest Adventure Guide group, “Navigators,” includes families from Northbrook and Glenview, as well as any families in other towns who belong to the North Suburban Y. Navigators will hold its inaugural father/daughter campout at Camp Minikani in Hubertus, Wisconsin from October 26-27, with the father/son campout taking place at the same location on November 2-3. Online registration and detailed information is available at http://nsymca.org/y/programs/adventure-guides?start=3.
“Our campouts are great opportunities to make new friends while making special family memories,” noted Dan Bulf, Adventure Guides Manager. “We will be able to enjoy the beautiful fall colors of Wisconsin together. It’s a perfect introduction to Adventure Guides for new families.”
