The YMCA of Greater Charlotte recognizes the impact that fathers make in their children’s lives, and that unique experiences for quality time together are not always easy to find. Y-Guides is a father-child program that strengthens relationships through activities that allow dads to spend more quality time with their children. Y-Guides also creates opportunities for fathers to find support and reassurance among a community of dads. The campout at the BB&T Ballpark will create a unique memory for 400 dads and kids and encourage other parents to engage in quality family time.
