Father/Child Program Information

The dads in the YMCA of Arlington Father/Child Program have discovered an innovative program that allows them to spend quality time with their kids during those growing up years. Participants meet once a month in small groups, called tribes. As part of the larger group, or nation, tribes join together to participate in activities ranging from the Pinewood Derby, Rocket Shoot, Daddy/Daughter Date Night and campouts. Programs are available for fathers and children from three years to 8th grade.
