Today started off hazy...and then the haze cleared...and then the rain came!  And with the rain came the thunder!  And Thunder means Frost Valley YMCA is RIDIN' THE LIGHTENING!  After starting with some water activities (tubing, creeking or natural jacuzzi) and jumping into football, the village had just started high elements and candles when the storms hit.  Everyone rushed inside and had a few minutes of hang out and prepping for a soggy afternoon.  But never fear!  Adventure counselors are here!  Some quick rearranging (alright..they hatched their rain plan earlier in the morning!) found the village chillin in the castle for the afternoon.  Everyone enjoyed the castle tour and games before dinner.  Now the village is back out in the yurts, listening to the rain as it falls on the tent and yurt walls, strumming on the guitars, playing cards and building relationships!

About the Author

Zach eigenbrodt

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Zach couldn't keep himself out of the woods when 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.
