Indian Guides & Princesses
Join us for memories that last two lifetimes. The Indian Guides & Indian Princesses program has long held the Native American traditions of building and fostering strong bonds between parent and child. Unlike "drop off" programs, all activities include both parent and child. Together, you will learn the ancient aims of an honorable culture and hear the voice of the Great Spirit in the winds of the earth. Together, you will journey together to places near and far: camp deep in the woods, catch a ball game at Wrigley field, sleep overnight at a museum. Wherever you go, you and your children will carry this gift of time together in your hearts forever.

Trailblazers and Trailmates
As children grow older and enter middle school, their schedules tend to become more crowded. Their capabilities and interests also expand. Our Trails Programs are designed for these older kids. The events are more challenging, intellectually and physically, and don't involve the ceremonies or tribal segregation of the Indian Guides & Indian Princesses.
