YMCA Guides & Princesses Hosts Father-Daughter Sweetheart Dance

DSC_1630The South Montgomery County Y Guides and Princess Program is hosting their annual Father-Daughter Sweetheart Dance on Saturday, February 8, 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Creekside YMCA. Create lasting memories with your daughter! The evening will include a balloon drop, fun music, line dancing, limbo, refreshments, photo booth and much more.  The community is invited. Registration is $10 per person through Feb. 7th. Pre-registration is required.


The Sweetheart Dance is one of many parent-child activities offered through the Y Guides and Princess Program. Families today are pulled in many directions.  Time and money are at a premium, with an increasing number of families trying to do more with fewer resources.  Kids have increasingly complex school and extracurricular schedules as well.  That’s why the South Montgomery County YMCA offers Adventure Guides, a program designed to take parents and children on an exciting journey of discovery.

For young children, life is a wondrous journey with the parent as a guide.  That is the premise of Y Guides and Princesses, an exciting parent-child experience.  This life-changing program is an enhanced and updated version of YMCAs’ earlier, time-honored Indian Guides and Indian Princesses parent-child programs. A program that began in 1926.  It celebrates family, nature, community, and plain old-fashioned fun, infused with the YMCA’s five character values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith. The program is structured so that one parent spends time with his or her child, building a relationship that is sure to make them “friends forever.”  Indeed, “friends forever” is the program motto.  Typical activities that the Y Guides take part in include: games, crafts, songs, stories, skits and outdoor pursuits, such as camping, hiking and swimming.

To register for the dance, stop by any YMCA location in The Woodlands: 6145 Shadowbend Place, 8100 Ashlane Way, and 6464 Creekside Forest Drive. To learn more, please call 832-698-1283 or visit!
