Rafting is going amazing!  The water level is a little low, but when I talked to the group leaders a pending storm was coming, and the group was all keeping fingers crossed for a good storm tonight to raise the water levels (one of the few trips we run in which everyone actually hopes for rain!!).  Yesterday was spent flying high on a flying squirrel before heading over to the 50 foot climbing tower.  The teambuilding continued as the group competed in the mud obstacle course, and came back together to do it all together at the end.  After splashing around in the duckies today, the group really enjoyed watching the video feedback at the end of the day as they cruised over one rapid specifically.  The sun has been great (and everyone is wearing sunscreen!), and the water warm.  All in all, everyone’s happy and smiling down in West Virginia.

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.

    Glad to hear something but would like to hear more. Wanted to say hello to my daughter Elena and see how she and the group are doing.
