Our Sunday thunder storms held off until the very end of opening campfire!  Participants sang songs and went through a couple of Adventure Village rituals before ducking under their platform tents for the night.

Today, the whole village started the day off with a little Geronimo (a game in which participants sit in a circle and then trade seats based on categories called by the “Caller”) and learned a few new things about each other (who just got a haircut before coming to camp,  who wears lace up shoes, etc).  After that the group did some teambuilding activities before splitting up into groups for the afternoon’s high and low elements.  After contemplating which mini-trip to do for next week, the group ended the night with a little capture the flag in the orchard!

The first set of pictures will be posted tomorrow!

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.
