The sun was shining and the mountains were brilliant and there wasn't a cloud in the sky for check in. After settling in with some icebreaker games the campers rolled right into some delicious Frost Valley pizza (an all time favorite!). After dinner, Adventure Village hiked out to their sacred campsite for the opening campfire, where they screamed songs and ate raccoon poop (chocolate).  Adventure Trips participants also hiked out to their new sacred campsite where they told stories and bonded over the beginning of their journey. All the trips headed out this morning bright and early. The sun rise made the whole sky peach-orange and the dew coated the whole valley. Stay tuned for more details! Today was a bit humid but mostly beautiful with a slight breeze and a ton of camp magic! Please note – Smugmug pictures are on the way. If you have an emergency or need to check-up on your camper, please leave a message at 845-985-2291 x265.  We’ll be checking messages frequently.

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.
