Lakewood Adventure Guides Kicks Off Its New Year

The Lakewood YMCA Adventure Guides is also known as Lake Trail Nation (LTN). We are a group of about 60 families with over 175 members. Our members include single and married parents, grandparents, and of course, the kids we care about. We provide opportunities for adults and boys and girls age 5-12 to spend enjoyable, constructive time together, fostering companionship and an understanding for a foundation to lifelong friendship.

Some of our recent activities have included Tent Camping at different Ohio State Parks, a Halloween Party, Moon Rock Bowling, a Holiday Party, Game Night at the Y, Induction Camp out in the Metroparks, the Pinewood Derby, Marching in the Lakewood July 4th Parade, Camp Y-Noah, Pool Parties, Hiking, Biking, Community Service, Camp Fitch (Winter campout!), Model Rockets, and Skiing. Smaller groups of children the same age and gender with their parents, called Circles, also plan monthly activities such as jewelry making parties, movie nights, pumpkin carving, spa day, and other activities.

Please join us for information nights for potential members at the Lakewood YMCA on September 10 and 11th from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Registration forms are available at information night, or contact Our first event of the year, a kick off dinner, will be held on September 20th.

Our programs launch parents and their children on a journey of discovery, with the child as the explorer and the parent as the guide. Adventure Guides encourages parents to get to know their kids while they are still kids with group activities. The one-on-one time in a fun, special environment builds important bonds through shared experiences.

Whether you are a mother, father, grandparent, or guardian with sons, daughters or both, ALL are welcome to the Lake Trail Nation to create great memories together. It is our belief that the best thing you can spend on your child is your time.
