Adventure Guides & Princesses
The Katori Nation Adventure Guides and Princesses Program is designed to foster companionship and understanding between fathers and their children in a wholesome atmosphere that emphasizes fun and adventure. We draw on activities which emphasize family values and respect for the environment.
One feature of our program that differentiates us from others similar is that all dads take part in activities with their child, not just one or two group leaders.
The program is available to dads and their children, aged 5 through 9 (Kindergarten through 3rd grade). An average of 6 – 10 dads and their children form a single gender tribe, typically from the same age group and in nearby subdivisions when possible. The program runs from August through May, corresponding to the school year.
There is at least one major Nation activity per month, including campouts, skating and swimming parties, participation in the Katy Rodeo Parade, and special Nation ceremonies. Each tribe also has a meeting once each month, and tribe chiefs attend a short “Longhouse Meeting” once each month to keep up with all that is happening in the Katori Nation.
You can learn more about our program by reading the articles in our FAQ. To find out more information and to have someone reach out to you, please contact us. If you are interested in participating in the program for the 2018-2019 school year, please let us know. We will be opening registration very soon and would love to have your contact info.
After the Katori Adventure program ends in third grade, the Katori Trails program takes over for fourth grade and up.
Katori Trails is a group of dads and their children in grades 4th to 12th who enjoy weekend outings filled with adventure, excitement, and most importantly, quality time having FUN together. Outings (which occur roughly once a month during the school year) typically involve tent camping, hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, off-road biking, horseback riding, or visits to regional attractions.
Unlike similar activity-oriented organizations, Katori Trails is not organized in defined groups or tribes and doesn’t hold regular meetings. There’s no pressure on members to attend events that don’t fit their family schedules. Simply put, our volunteer trail leaders are here to provide the planning and organization, so like-minded dads can offer their children memorable outings in a safe and wholesome environment that will leave both dad and child with positive, life-long memories.
