Today was another beautiful, but very hot day in the Catskills.  Adventure Village woke up to one of the most exciting mornings of them all.  The campers split up into groups and got to ride down the New Old Zipline, or the Giant Swing, make nature art, or try out a brand new specialty that melds yoga and dubstep music.

Later in the morning AdVill began their Survival training and learned how to build shelters. The afternoon was filled with more high elements on the high ropes course and the leap of faith.  As always, especially on such a hot day, there was lots of creekin!

Then some awesome mountain storms rolled into the Valley.  We got a short torrential down pour and then literally got to watch the clouds float back out of the Valley into the sky and the sun came out yet again.

AdVill got to play with CIT’s for the evening.  The CIT’s turned our dining hall into a massive maze with some challenges along the way for our kids to go through.  Now everyone is resting up and getting ready for an all day hike tomorrow!

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.
