From hiking to ziplining to attempting to climb our giant ladder with a trusty buddy, the adventures have been non-stop here!  Yesterday, AdVill got to play a much loved game of Geronimo with one of our board members and alumni, Al Filreis.  Last night, the entire village (and counselors too!) played an epic game of dodgeball.

After all that excitement, the village had a somewhat quieter morning in preparation for their overnight at a super secret spot that only the Adventure department knows about!  It’s possibly one of the last secrets in Frost Valley!  Before packing up for their camp out, they got to play an early morning game of soccer, and then some groups went to make candles (an all-time favorite craft), some went to explore near the creek and make some tea (the old fashioned way) and a few daring campers jumped off of the leap of faith!

Wish our campers well on their overnight under the stars! (and send us happy vibes to ward off the rain)

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.
