What is the Adventure Guides Program?
  • The YMCA Adventure Guides program is for fathers and their sons (5-11 years). 
  • There are Circle meetings in the community in which you live each month and a city wide activity each quarter.
  • The small groups  are called Circles. Each Circle has a unique name and a great heritage. These small groups meet together to build bonds between sons and dads.
  • Circles meet throughout the Chattanooga area
Can you picture 100 men and their sons having a great time building camp fires, fishing, hiking and doing the things that bond men with their sons.  Most importantly fathers spending time communicating with their son about responsibilities, family and God.  These moments are very important and special. No one else to get in the way.  Just you and your son.
We have designed the YMCA Adventure Guides program to assist you and your child on your journey of discovery. We seek to encourage you as a parent to "get to know your kid while your kid is still a kid." 
The four main direction points on the compass are the essential components of the program:

Family is True North - the focal point of the program.

Nature and the camping experience are integral parts of the program.
The spirit of the program is experienced through belonging to a small Community, called a Circle.
Fun is the magic of the program.
Along the journey, adults should model, teach and demonstrate these values as well as give children many opportunities to practice and celebrate them.
