Annual weekend camp adventures.

Longhouses are Federation Signature Events that occur at an area camp. We schedule these annual weekend camp adventures in the fall and spring. These weekends provide quality time for dads and kids together with their tribe plus award presentations and plenty of activities. Activities vary from camp to camp and include: 
  • Archery
  • Blacksmithing
  • Challenge Course
  • Crafts
  • Fishing
  • Group Games
  • Hiking
  • Horseback
  • Paintball
  • Riflery
  • Skeet Shooting
  • Waterfront: Canoes, Paddle Boards, Tubing, Swimming
  • Zip Line 
We encourage all Y-Guides tribes to attend at least one Longhouse together each year. Most returning tribe Longhouses begin on Friday night and end on Sunday morning. Participants choose to stay one or two nights. Tribes bunk together in cabins.
Every fall, we offer special one night Longhouses for first year tribes at YMCA Camp Thunderbird.
