Families love Y Guides for the camp-outs, new friends, fun events and activities but mostly for the opportunity to strengthen the parent-child relationship. Read what our families say about why they are part of this action-oriented program:

"Y Guides encourages time together doing things that we generally wouldn't be exposed to. In an era when my default setting is to hover, allowing them to be out of eye site at Orkila knowing they're perfectly safe but exploring and experiencing new things is magical. The time on the beach with their friends around the campfire is special. Y Guides is all about spending time with your kids along with other parents who place similar value on time with their families. The one-on-one time is special." - Y Parent

“Y Guides is amazing! My daughter and I have strengthened our child-father bond through the wonderful activities we have done, and the shared memories these have created. Also, both my daughters and I have met new friends because of Y Guides that will stay with us forever.”  - Y Parent

"It's an incredible experience with the kids that allows them freedoms they typically don't have at home in the city. Furthermore, as a parent, I have gotten to know a group of guys extraordinarily well through the program that I envision will be lifelong friends." - Y Parent

"Y Guides is a fun, inspirational and magnificent bonding opportunity between a parent and their son or daughter." - Y Parent

The Y Guides season runs September to June, following the school-year schedule. Get involved today!
