West End YMCA

Adventure Guides


Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Adventure Guides program offered through the West End YMCA of Lake County. As you consider whether the program is right for you and your son or daughter, here's a few quick facts:

  • Most of the children involved in the program are ages 6-12. We recommend starting as early as Kindergarten. Some members stay active well into their high school years.
  • The Guides have about 30-40 active dads involved with the program.
  • Some of the participants are Y members, others just want to be part of a program that gives them the opportunity to spend quality time with their son or daughter.
  • Y members join the program for free. Others pay just $30 a year.
  • We have active participants from throughout Lake County.
  • Monthly gatherings arranged by the dads give the entire group the chance to get together and enjoy some fun activities.
