3 canoes on lake cole

AdVill goes for a hike…

Many AdVill campers and staff alike look forward to this special day in the session.  Today, the entire village split into three groups and went on their first journey away from the main hub of Frost Valley.

One group bushwhacked up Doubletop Mountain in an attempt to find the famous Catskill plane crash near the summit.  Another group hiked up and over Wildcat mountain to visit our Farm Camp and got to meet all the animals.  Our last group, but certainly not least, hiked around Frost Valley property and bushwhacked along a local stream.

After a long day of hiking, the village reunited for a hearty dinner in the dining with just enough time to refuel before heading back outside for their overnight at the beloved Project X, where they will sleep out under the stars.


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.
