Welcome to Big Thunder Spirit Expedition of the YMCA Adventure Princesses

Wahoka!  Welcome to Big Thunder Spirit.  We’re a father/daughter group supported by the YMCA that allows fathers and daughters the opportunity to experience nature, develop personal skills and build self-confidence and independence through shared activities including several camping trips throughout the year.  Most importantly, we have fun together while building lifelong bonds between father and daughter.


This year we have trips planned to Camp Surf in San Diego, a sleepover at Angel Stadium, a snow camp in the mountains and several other fabulous activities.  Check out our website with pictures and videos of previous events.   If you’re interested in joining us on these adventures, please send us a note using the “Email Us” button below.  You and your daughter will both be glad you did.  I can confidently say that this program is the best thing my daughters and I have ever done together!

Congratulations To Our New Navigators!

What a great year our dads and daughters of Big Thunder Spirit had this season under the leadership of Dan and Grace Fischer!  Our dads and daughters experienced some fantastic events and created some everlasting bonds with each other!

Dan and Grace will always be remembered for the good times and laughs you provided us all!  We wish you the best of luck in your next endeavor!  A big "Standing O" to the Fischer's!!

A huge welcome to our new BTS Navigators!  Tom, Rachel and Rebecca Johnson!!  We have no idea what these guys have up their sleeves for next season, but I'm sure it's gonna be "AWESOME!"  Our dads and daughters are looking forward to another fun filled season with the Johnson Family at the helm!
