Inch by inch the toes of travelers make their way to feel the flow of the chilled stream. Its embrace aided as a moment to relax after a busy day. The music being played eased our minds as the melodies both string and water eloquently reflected the great times that have been shared.
Adventure village prepared itself to be in the spotlight today as two patient and creative individuals took their time capturing the essence of our experience. Each participant expressed our programs meaning to them through words and activities such as zip lining, mountain boarding, and fort building. The moments caught will hopefully be used to create a promotional video for our program. We want to share each opportunity with as many people as we can because the positive impact of nature and adventure on an individual is powerful. Tomorrow brings a day of excitement as each trip works together to prepare for the trip ahead.
-Parker Ashton-Youngs, Trip Coordinator
About the Author
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.
