What is Adventure Guides and Trailblazers

 Most of us lead very busy lives and often wonder how to fit in quality time with our kids. This is where the Adventure Guides and Trailblazers in. This flexible program is designed for dads and kids to spend time together.


How it works

 You will join a small group of other families and friends from your neighborhood or school. Your group sets its own agenda for the year and meets monthly for a brief ceremony, games, crafts, or even field trips.


There are even special Federation wide events that are offered monthly to all program participants so that you can interact with other small groups as well.


The special events can include:


Fall and Spring overnight camp outs in tents or cabins

A winter cabin camp out complete with meals and activities.

Late night events at the Y

Canoe on Wheels and Raingutter Regatta

Christmas Caroling

Naperville Parade

STEM night

Museum overnight

And more!
