Adventure Guides Open House

Join us at our Open House and learn more about the Y’s exciting Adventure Guides parent-child program. Get a preview of the fun the Guides have throughout the year as parents and children strengthen bonds through shared experiences.

The Somerset Hills YMCA Adventure Guides program runs concurrently with the school year with small groups, called circles, meeting each month for games, crafts, and refreshments.

Adventure Guides was originally conceived as Y Indian Guides in 1926 by Joe Friday, an Ojibwa Indian, and YMCA Director Harold S. Keltner. The Adventure Guides program has evolved but continues to be based on dignity, patience, endurance, spirituality, feeling for the earth, and concern for the family.
