Adventure Village is off to a great start already!  After all of the campers arrived, they got a chance to get to know their counselors and new found tent-mates.  Then everyone got to explore a little bit and go on a camp tour, led by our very own Adventure Village counselors.

Before dinner, there is always time to play a few games and run around, or some might choose to just relax in the sun for a while.  After dinner, the real fun begins.  Campers, both new and returners, are reminded what Adventure Village is all about and why they are here.

Our opening campfire is full of fun, music, dancing, and most of all, tradition.  At first, campers learn immediately to lead and trust one another on a blind walk out to the fire ring.  We were lucky enough to have our Adventure Counselors in training there to lead us in some songs and other village traditions.  By the end of the night, everyone there is proud to say they are finally a part of Adventure Village, Session 2, 2011!

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.
