Today the village started their day with pancakes and sausages for breakfast and a period of “The Council.”  The Council is an Adventure Village original program that involves running around camp in a group and making good-natured havoc.  They do such things as finding a director and running around that director in circles singing a silly song.  They then run off without giving any explanation to the person.   

After that, they jumped on our new-old zipline.  Before we built our Y-Tower  and the new zipline, we used to have one back in the woods.  Our Teambuilding director resurrected that old zipline just a few weeks ago and opened it up for our campers this summer. 

After lunch – our crew was going to start hiking to the farm, but ran back inside when we had a short thunderstorm.  When the sun came back out about 30 minutes late our group hiked off property, up and over the mountain to the Frost Valley Farm (about 3 miles all together).  They’ll be spending the night at the farm tonight, doing an activity in the morning and then hiking to another location called Merrell’s Pavillion for a second night out.

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.
