Halfway done with Adventure Trips!

Today marks the halfway point for our adventure trips and they are just getting started.  Both West Virginia trips have their fill of white water rafting in this week. One trip has gone and returned from there overnight rafting trip. It was a great experience for all of the campers and they are looking forward to doing more rafting next week. They also went caving and had an extremely positive experience that not everyone can say they’ve had.  The other West Virginia trip started off the rafting in individual blow up rafts and large rafts for two days. Everyone really seemed to love being on the water and they are now prepared to do their overnight next week. They also had a half of a day of biking and were able explore the beautiful areas of West Virginia.

The White Mountain trip in New Hampshire just finished up a busy week of climbing. They have been mastering their belay, knot tying, and climbing skills for the past two days and are almost pro’s. They then took a day off of climbing to explore the different peaks of the White Mountain area.  They are now in Rhode Island to see what the coast has to offer for sea kayaking.

The Habitat for Humanity trip has been putting in their hours volunteering the Restore. They have been doing everything from separating scrap metal, refinishing furniture, sorting out books and records, or actually being on the sales floor helping out customers. On their day off they have been busy climbing in the Gunks, which is home to the best climbing in the Northeast. They also did some biking in Minnewaska State Park  and experienced the many vistas this park had to offer.

With one more week full of life changing experiences, I am excited to see the growth as individuals but also as a community.

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.
