Last night Adventure Village journeyed out to the great beyond for their overnight.  Guys took a hike out along our Pigeon Brook Trail to renovate some old campsites that haven’t been used in quite a number of years while our ladies took to the hill and worked on improving Adventure’s very own campsite – Project X.  After eating bagels out on the trail, everyone headed back to their village to shower and spend some time with their tent groups before lunch.  

Lunch came and went, followed by an epic game of capture the flag against our friendly rivals in Hemlock Village (resident camp’s 13-year-old boys) and some time for an afternoon rendition of Challenge Night.  Breaking into groups, campers competed for such things as the smelliest shoe and best counselor impersonations.  Waterfront or creeking came next – which was just in time for the some rain to hit the valley. 

Finally, our campers started packing up their gear and belongings to head on out to the mini-trips tomorrow.  Despite the rainy forecast, campers are pumped to be getting off camp and involved in canoeing, backpacking, biking or climbing until Wednesday.  Our final evening activity before everyone heads out tomorrow is the Saturday Night Dance in which are campers are currently creating costumes for as I write!

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.
