"My daughter and I started with the Adventure Guides when she was a mere 2 years old. Kelsey is now 10, we look forward to and attend every event. She is friends for life with children who have outgrown the program, children still in the program, and most importantly with me and the many other dads who are great role models to all the children. It really does take a village, and I’m proud to be a member, with the other dads in this group, of the village. Of all the things I do to ensure I am an excellent father, the Adventure Guides is likely the easiest and most rewarding." Paul "Lounging Gator" Gibson - FL
"Adventure Guides and YMCA, what a Great Partnership! We have been fortunate to be part of both these two Awesome Groups for the last few years. YMCA for over 9 years and Adventure Guides for the last 5. We have been part of so many memorable trips that I, as well as my family will never forget. Sleeping under Saturn V, A night out in the Museum, Epcot Center, The Keys, Airboat Rides, Pool Parties, the list goes on and on. Owen "Wolf Blood" is now 9 and Evan "Bear Foot" is 6. The times that we have had father and son(s) time(s) alone have been epic and we Thank all the other Adventure Guides for helping make it happen. We have created memories and friendship that will last a life time." Rich “ El Chupacabra” Aube - FL
