Come one, come all to Harvest Festival! Join us at Huntington Beach Central Park on November 17 from 11am to 2pm. (Set up from 10am to 11am, Induction Ceremony for new members begins at 1pm.)

This event is one of the better recruiting events for tribes and the Indian Princess program in general. This is a great place for families to find out what the GHV Nation is all about. Have your tribe set up a booth, staff it with dads and daughters, and have fun!

There is no need to register for this event, and there is no cost to attend. Just show up, enjoy a day at the park, and (hopefully) meet some new tribe members.

This is a family event, so spouses and siblings are welcome!

We have reserved the space at Huntington Beach Central Park around the Amphiteater. Click HERE for a map to the park (parking is adjacent the Library).


It's an indoor water park! It's a hotel! It's fun for the whole family! Join us on Saturday, October 20th (please note the date change).

This is a complete buyout of the water park area for the exclusive use of Adventure Guide members on Saturday night.

You do not have to book a room to attend the "water park after dark" portion, which is the YMCA event. However, with a room you will have access to the water park all day on Sunday as well.  Please check with Zach Brooks of the YMCA (email contact below) for availability of rooms that were set aside for the YMCA at special rates. If those rooms are sold out, the Hotel still has rooms available at their normal rates (typically $440/night).

Great Wolf Lodge night is a family event, so spouses and siblings are welcome too! Parking is included in the cost of attendance.

Register for the event on the YMCA website HERE, or click HERE to contact Zach Brooks at the YMCA to register via email. Walk-in registrations on October 20th are also welcome.

Although doors to the water park open at 9:00pm, YMCA staff will be on site distributing bracelets for water park access beginning at 8:15pm.
