Our Indian Guides / Indian Princess program is administered by the Longhouse of the Orange Skies, Non-profit (founded in 2013). We are not affiliated with the YMCA of Orange. The Longhouse is a non-profit organization run and operated on a 100% volunteer basis with the exception of professional services required for legal and financial reporting to support the Indian Guides / Indian Princess program and our new Trailmates / Trailblazers program for older children. The Longhouse Council oversees a 1,400 member organization comprised of dads and their sons/daughters offering over 40 different tribes to choose from that are under 10 Nations within the Indian Guides and Indian Princess program. The purpose of our Indian Guides and Indian Princess program is to strengthen the communication between fathers and their children by providing a framework for enjoyable, constructive, and quality time together.
Our program serves families in Orange County, California by offering Indian Guides (Father – Son) and Indian Princess (Father – Daughter) programs that can nurture strong relationships and memories between fathers and their children using Native American themes and values. The Indian Guides / Indian Princess program also provides fathers and their children with the opportunity to give back to the community through community service projects.
Recent service projects include fund raising for Tustin Area Senior Center Santa Project, Ronald McDonald House, Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen, Mary’s Kitchen, and feeding homeless women at Isaiah House – Orange County Catholic Worker.
