Little Guides

If you have children between the ages of 3 and 5, our Little Guides programs are a great way for you to foster a positive lifelong relationship with them. Emphasizing the vital role parents play in the growth and development of children, we host monthly group events that help build a child’s self-esteem, character and identity. We arrange a lot of great activities, including camping-in at our Y, swimming, pajama story time and more.

“What a great way for me and my daughter to spend time together with other fathers and daughters. Not only has she made new friends, but I’ve enjoyed connecting with other dads and am having fun too.”

Through our Little Guides programs, you and your child will create memories together that will last a lifetime. You’ll also develop healthy relationships, gain a sense of belonging and learn the importance of giving back to the community through activities with other families and community service projects.

Families that play together, stay together.

You and your child will strengthen bonds and respect. Here, you and your child will meet with other parent-child pairs to share fun and educational activities.

This isn’t just a children’s program, but a joint parent-child experience that’s designed to build and strengthen the bonds of love, understanding and respect between you and your child. During monthly tribal meetings, children and parents will participate in story time, crafts and educational topics. The Nation will sponsor monthly events and outings.
