Y Adventure Guides is a parent/child camping program for families that teaches character development, builds leadership skills and provides opportunities for families to spend quality time together .  Kids ages 5-12 earn badges, go hiking, and do group activities such as games, crafts, campfire fun, and ceremonies. Families provide their own camping equipment.

The Y Adventure Guides program runs from October through May with one weekend-long camping trip per month.   For more information, contact Colby Hall at (941) 798-9622 x341 or
