The YMCA of the Foothills is preparing to launch another season of its Tribes program for children in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and their fathers.

Participants take part in games, camping trips, ceremonies and family adventures. There are monthly activities such as pumpkin-carving, roller skating and a pancake breakfast.

The program runs from September to June and registration opens Aug. 1. To learn more, contact Craig Strazzeri at cstrazzeri@ymcafoothills.org or go online to ymcafoothills.org/tribes.
