Get back to basics with your family and come learn about this 80 Year YMCA national parent child program for kids grades K – 6 incorporating fun activities while building a lifetime of memories. Some activities include campouts, sporting activities, pinewood derby, cardboard boat regatta, daddy/daughter dance, parade participation, community involvement and much more!
Registration for this program begins August 5, 2012 and will run concurrent with the school year, August through June. Once you have registered for the program, parent and child will be assigned to a tribe and will have the opportunity to participate in monthly meetings and events designed to teach children an appreciation of nature as well as respect for family and traditions.
