Three Fires Longhouse is about helping Dads set aside quality time to spend with their kids. Our scheduled events and activities make it easy for you to focus on the important things – just show up and have fun. Your family will be creating lifelong memories together with other dads and kids from your neighborhood and school.

We’ve had lots of events this year.  We had an excellent Fall Campout with rockets and activities galore, as well as a Fall Hike, Bike the Creek, Roller-Skating, Winter Camp Out, & Family Ski Weekend.  Unfortunately, sledding was cancelled (no snow….).  But more is still to come:

Reserve your room now for the water park weekend in April if you haven’t.  The blocked out rooms may be sold out, but you can still go (just may not get a discount).  And new this year, for the older kids, we will have a canoe trip available as an activity for the older kids.  As always, check our events page for a full list of activities, and always be sure to check council or tribe emails for any late changes.

Make sure to Contact Us if you have any questions!

Who Are We?

The Tribes in the Three Fires Longhouse are groups of Fathers setting aside time to spend with their Sons and Daughters. Activities include monthly group meetings with other neighborhood members, local Federation events, and three annual weekend camping trips hosted at YMCA camps. Every event is optional, every tribe sets its own meeting schedule. Commit as much or as little time as you can spare. Get to know your neighbors. Stay involved in your kids lives.
