West Virginians are having an AWESOME time.  The group has rafter down a few rivers, swam (intentionally and unintentionally) down a few rivers, and have thanked the rain gods for sending lots of water their way.  The caving was so great, that several of the campers have mentioned that, at first they felt really claustrophobic, but by the end of the caving, weren’t feeling claustrophobic at all!  The guides helped the group through some tight spaces, and big open caverns.  And of course getting muddy and wet is always a good time.  Today was their group choice day, and everyone caught up on some much needed sleep before cooking a big brunch and heading down to the lake to swim, play volleyball and lounge around.  The evening ended with a movie in town before returning to the campsite for dinner and some much needed packing time for their big rafting overnight coming up 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.
