The Meadows Nation provides Dads and Daughters a wonderful opportunity to share time and participate in fun activities together!  The tribes in the Meadows Nation are Princess tribes that draw from the schools in Clarendon Hills, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, and Westmont.

Six tribes comprise the Meadows Nation.  Each tribe holds monthly meetings with activities including crafts, games, and stories.

Nation Activities include fall/winter/spring campouts, community outreach, and local events (pumpkin hunt, roller skating, kite fly, Canoe on Wheels, etc).  All Guides and Princesses are encouraged to bring prospective new members to local events so they may experience what the Yomechas program is all about.

Tribal Vests

Each tribe has their own unique tribe vests.  The vests  give each tribe it's group identity along with telling a personal story about each member -- by virtue of the patches that are sewn on the vests.
