The boots portion has just wrapped up! Everyone had a great time backpacking. A highlight of the trip was hiking Mt. Marcy a challenging 9.5 mile hike with breath taking views of the Adirondacks. Today they had a slow morning before heading over to Raquette River Outfitters to get fitted for PFDs and pick up their canoes!!

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.
