Cheerio Nation Weekends

Fathers & children have fun together participating in the High Point Y-Guides and Y-Princesses programs

Join in unique father and child bonding experiences that focus on charity, tradition, and togetherness.

The Y-Guides and Y-Princesses programs have been traditions at Camp Cheerio since 1958. Even before Cheerio began operating as a summer camp, fathers and children from the High Point YMCA would visit the property to camp out for their annual Pow-Wows. More than 50 years later our mission remains the same: To strengthen the father/child relationship by providing opportunities for fathers to make lasting memories with their children.

As members of the program you and your child will be invited to Cheerio Nation events that include fun activities such as the annual Father/Daughter Dance, a pinewood derby, and twice-yearly Pow-Wows at Cheerio, as well as community outreach projects such as bell ringing for the Salvation Army and clothing drives for the less fortunate. For each Nation Event that you and your child participate in you will each receive a patch for your vest, each patch representing something special the two of you experienced together. You and your tribe will also plan and participate in other outings and activities as often as you like.

For information on joining the program please contact the Camp Cheerio Office by calling 336-869-0195 or email our .
