AdVill: Hiking Day!

Yesterday AdVill divided up into a few groups to do various levels of hikes.  The first group stayed here on camp, hiking some of our underutilized upper trails.  The group LOVED seeing some of the new places, and got a chance to discover the cool things right in their own backyard! 

The second group hiked Table Top Mountain, a total of about 5 miles.  The view from just below the summit was great, and it was nice to be off camp for the morning! 

The final group strapped on their packs and did a rigorous hike up Doubletop Mountain – a trailess peak that one can access right from the Frost Valley camp – a total of about 7 miles all together!

Right before dinner, camp saw an awesome thunderstorm roll on through, leaving things a bit wet for the evening time.  Adventure Village met up with Hemlock Village to do their evening activity before returning to their own village for devotion and sleep.


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.
