3 canoes on lake cole

And Their Off!

All of the Adventure departed on their 4 day, 3 night mini-trips and begin an adventure of a lifetime.  We had 4 trips leave today all exploring different parts of this beautiful area.

Our first and youngest group went on our On-Camp Backpacking trip. This trip is wonderful for kids just starting out in Adventure Village because it teaches the essential skills that they will need while backpacking in the Catskill Mountains while never leaving camp property. This trip starts at camp and hikes its web of trails until the last night, where they will reside at Merrell Pavilion which provides some of the most beautiful vistas in the Catskill Mountain Range.

The next group is our Catskill backpacking trip. They set off on some of the most grueling but rewarding trails that the Catskills have to offer. This trip certainly has no shortage of beautiful vistas.

Next is our Climbing trip in the Mohonk Preserve! We are fortunate enough to have 3 amazing guides to take our campers out and not only learn how to climb but to also learn how to set up a safe climb by learning different knots, belaying, and other essential climbing skills.

Finally, we have the Adirondack Canoe trip exploring the Saranac Lake area. This trip is great for kids looking to spend their day in a canoe paddling along side some of the best scenery in the state.

All of the trips return Wednesday afternoon to share their amazing experiences.
*Just a reminder that we will not be blogging Monday or Tuesday due to everyone in Adventure Village being gone on trail.*

Happy Trails,

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.
