Adventure CITs are off to a great start! They’ve already rode the night zip, participated in several leadership trainings (diversity training, leadership styles and development and what makes a good counselor!), and worked with Day Camp groups. No one hesitated as they were asked to play games and plan activities for all different ages. This afternoon the CITs collected some St. John’s Wart and mixed it with oil. In a few days, they will take this concoction and add some beeswax to make a salve good for treating burns and minor cuts and scrapes.
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.
