3 canoes on lake cole

And now for something completely different

Habitat ADK

Habitat Adirondacks is moving the Ampersand Avenue house along quite nicely. Recent work has including pouring cement slabs outside of the two doors on the first floor and doing a lot of siding all around the house.


There was also some taping and speckling work done inside the house.


Sunday was a day off from working and the group joined the kids from Adirondack Rambler for a day on the upper Hudson River. There were a few swimmers, a lot of splashing, and a great time had by all.

Yesterday was their final day of work at the house. This group has accomplished so much at the house and has definitely made a difference in the progress of the home of a great family. Today they will be rock climbing in the Keene Valley area and then Thursday the group will head back to Frost Valley for a final night together. Thank you once again for allowing your teen to participate in this amazing experience. It would not have been the same without any one of them.



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.
