What is the YMCA Guide Program, Adventure Guide Program, Y-guides, Adventure Guides, Adventure Princess,
Indian Guide, Indian Princess, and Papoose Programs about?

The YMCA Y-Indian Guides, Y-Indian Princesses, Y-Indian Braves and Y-Indian Maidens, now also known as the Adventure Princess and Adventure Guide program, are year-round programs designed to build strong relationships between parents and their children.  It is open to families with children in kindergarten to third grade.

The YMCA guide program was started  by Harold S. Keltner, St. Louis YMCA Director and Joe Friday, an Ojibway Indian.

The participants in the YMCA Family Programs learn about American Indian people their culture, their customs, crafts and games, and seek to bring new understanding and appreciation of the Native American Heritage and the contributions Native Americans have made to our nation.
They strive to share the qualities of the American Indian culture and life: 
Dignity, Patience, Endurance, Spirituality, Feeling for the earth, and Concern for the family.

Some YMCA y-guide programs are now called YMCA Adventure guides but have strived to keep the Native American theme. 
The reason the YMCA uses the Native American theme is to help focus the groups, and to bring traditional values and organizational structure to the program.
The YMCA you join will assign you to a group called a circle or tribe, that will meet on a regular basis in each others’ homes, weekly, biweekly or monthly. 
YMCA guides tribes/groups will get together for campouts and family outings, throughout the year to go on campouts, and other field trips.


The yguides aims are listed as:
1. To be clean in body and pure in heart.
2. To be pals forever with my father/son.
3. To love the sacred circle of my family.
4. To listen while others speak.
5. To love my neighbor as myself.
6. To seek and preserve the beauty of the Great Spirit's work in forest, field, and stream

suede vest kit instructions, yguide vest assembly

Sew Back B1 to Top Front A following sewing instructions below (You can overlap them whichever way you would like)
B1 over A is how I prefer to do it but you can also do it as pictured here which is A over B1.
yguide vest kit assembly, suede vest kit instructions
On the underside tie a knot. as pictured leaving a 1/2" of thread or less
At both ends of the seam use a match or bic lighhter to melt the tag ends of the nylon thread. With the bottom of the lighter or a metal object tap the knot down so it is flat.
IF you do not melt the tails of the knot into the knot itself the thread can untie itself. CAUTION: Nylon Thread Will Cause Sever Burns, PLEASE Use Caution!
yguide vest kit assembly, suede vest kit instructions
1. Cut thread about 6" longer than the seam you are planning to stitch.
2. To begin each seam, start threaded needle from understde of the 2nd hole leacing about 2" on the underside.
3. Go up through the 2nd hole then down through the first hole and tie a knot on the underside with the tail end of the thread.
4. Stitch up and down as in a running stitch through the remaining holes until you reach the last hole.
5. On the underside tie a knot as shown in the step by sep pictures leaving about a 1/2" of thread
6. At both ends of the seam use a match or bic lighhter to melt the tag ends of the nylon thread. With the bottom of the lighter or a metal object tap the knot down so it is flat. IF you do not melt the tails of the knot into the knot itself the thread can untie itself. CAUTION: Nylon Thread Will Cause Sever Burns, PLEASE Use Caution!

Hopefully the instructions we have created for construction of your y-guide vests using artificial sinew, will be helpful in making your vests a project you can do with your child. (EXCEPT for the melting of the knot threads)
Many of the kits that we carry require similar sewing as is done with the vest, so this is a perfect opportunity to assist your child in learning this skill so that they will be able to master the other kits as well.

Leathercraft Cement Glue Notes: Gluing your patches to your suede vest after assembly.

If the back of your patch is shiny (which many of them are now), scuff up the back of the patch so that the glue will adhere.
Place the patch on the vest in the position where it will be glued.
Mark around the patch lightly with a pencil.
Put a thin coat of glue on the back of the patch and in the space you have marked out for the patch.
Allow glue to become tacky.
Put patch on vest in position.
Set a book on top of the patch when the patch is on the vest to hold them together while the glue dries.
MAKE SURE that you only apply a THIN coat of glue... If you put too much glue on the patch or vest it will seep over the sides of the patch and stain the vest.

Try to get the glue all the way to the bottom edges of the patch so that they will be fully adhered to the vest. If the edges are not glued down this tends to cause the edges to lift and the patch to "pop off"
