HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. BRIDGE!  Yep, today AdVill celebrated Sequoia Bridge’s 100th anniversary.  Sequoia Bridge (the bridge you need to walk over in order to enter the village) was first built as part of a road in Claryville.  A flood washed the bridge down river, whereaupon a Frost Valley CEO saw the bridge and asked the town if he could keep it.  The town agreed, and our CEO (Mr. Brown) scooped up the bridge and placed it over the river at Frost Valley where it still stands today!  Today, AdVill teamed up with the MAC campers to enjoy a BBQ, complete with Happy Birthday and birthday cake.  The rain didn’t dull our spirits, as we simply moved the meal indoors!

Prior to the birthday bash, campers pulled out some paint and went to town painting each other, counselors’ clothes and structures around the village.  A little time splashing in the river cooled everyone off (and cleaned some people up!) before afternoon activities began with Susky village.  Look for pictures soon from this artful, birthday bash!

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.
