Here and back again!  Wilderness Skill Builder’s pulled in last night after a great day of paddling.  Their favorite part?  Learning how to do t-rescues (a.k.a. getting back into a boat in water if you accidentally flip the boat) in the water before jumping into the van for the ride home!  There are some awesome new paddling skills all around (as well as other camping skills!) and huge smiles on everyone’s faces.

Today everyone enjoyed some time on the climbing tower, flying squirrel and mountain boarding (sort of like skate boarding on boards with big wheels and hand breaks down a grassy slope) before swimming in the afternoon.  Last I saw, everyone was on their way to a hot shower and an overnight at Pete’s Pavillion (one of the BEST places on camp – wait until you see pictures!!).

Life’s great for the skill builders, and I’ll see parents/guardians in the morning so they can tell you in person how awesome their adventures were!  See y’all soon!!

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.
