  3. To plan and support activities for the entire family to participate in and enjoy
  4. To instill self confidence, team concepts, and leadership skills in a fun environment - to create lifetime memories
  5. To establish & grow tribes within our communities for young Guides and Father's alike to foster lasting friendships and lifelong memories - "PALS FOREVER" extends beyond the friendships made in schools or on athletic fields

Program Philosophy: To foster a lifetime friendship between father and child. It is a great way for busy dads to spend quality time with their son. This is Dad’s opportunity to be involved in organized activities with his children. You’ll never regret it!!!

About once a month, all of the tribes are invited to enjoy a large event together as a longhouse. Our events include:

  • Campouts
  • Pinecar race
  • Sporting events
  • Toboganning
  • Hiking
  • Bowling
  • Hayrides
