Born and raised in Fond du Lac, WI, Zach couldn’t keep himself out of the woods when he was growing up. He started working at a Northern Wisconsin YMCA Camp as a wilderness trip leader while in college and fell in love with getting kids into nature. The smiles on kids faces after returning from a once in a life time wilderness experience is why he is here today. Zach brought his talents to Frost Valley YMCA, in 2014, when he started as the Trips Coordinator and soon was promoted to Adventure Director. Zach loves all forms of wilderness exploration, though some would say his heart lies most with canoeing.
