4th of July Lobster

Habitat Maine reports all is amazing.  The crew has been working on a different house this week; building walls and helping to insulate.  The Habitat leaders at the new house have been teaching everyone lots of new skills.

The future owners of the house, once again, bought the group lunch on their first day at the house.  They have been also providing pastries and snacks throughout the day to keep everyone’s energy level up!  The boys have been eating lots…

What could be better then spending the 4th of July in Bar Harbor?  Maybe, seeing fireworks and eating lobster?  The crew got a really good deal on lobster from the dock that they left for whale watching on…

Did I say whale watching?  The morning started off cold and fogged in, but it soon cleared and the group saw 4 whales, 15 times!  The captain of the ship said it was the best whale watching trip he has done in a long time.

Despite all the rain that they have been having up in Maine, the group is in high spirits.  Shout outs will be coming soon…


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.
