PRLog - Aug. 7, 2009 - WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIF.--The Triunfo YMCA will hold an Indian Guides registration barbeque from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on September 13 at Willow Elementary School (29026 Laro Dr, Agoura Hills). Kids and parents will learn about Indian Guides and Princesses, Trailblazers and Papoose programs. Y-Indian Guides  is for families with children in pre-school through sixth grade.

   The Y-Indian Guides was developed in 1926 by Harold Keltner of the St. Louis YMCA with the help of his friend, Joe Friday, an Ojibwa Indian, and William Hefelfinger, chief of the first Y-Indian tribe in Richmond Heights, Missouri. Friday spoke before groups of YMCA boys and dads in St. Louis, and Keltner discovered that fathers, as well as boys, had a strong interest in the traditions and ways of the American Indian. More than 70 years later, a quarter of a million children and adults now take part in the program each year.
Indian Papooses (fathers and their son or daughter ages 3 1/2 to pre-kindergarten) is designed to get an early start on fostering understanding and companionship between parent and child.
Y Indian Guides and Princesses (fathers and their son or daughter in kindergarten through second grade) develops understanding and companionship between father and son and daughter.

Y Trailblazers (fathers and their son or daughter in third through sixth grades) is a continuation for older children of the YMCA Indian Guide programs. Y-Trailblazers offers children more challenging and varied experiences, while teaching leadership and responsibility.

   "These programs give fathers and their child an opportunity to spend great times together involved in indoor and outdoor activities," says Veronica Rodarte, Triunfo YMCA program director. "The bond and the memories that result from Y-Indian Guides lasts a lifetime."

Triunfo YMCA staff and Y-Guide volunteers will be at the event to answer questions, demonstrate activities and sign-up program members. Parents and kids meet in neighborhood tribes with meetings held monthly, usually at one of the family's homes.  For more information, call Veronica Rodarte at 818-707-9622 or email vrodarte@triunfoymca.org.

The Triunfo YMCA serves Westlake Village, Agoura Hills and Oak Park.
Other information/registration nights are in the works for the Simi Valley, Conejo Valley and Newbury Park YMCA branches. Check with the branch in your area for dates and locations.
