3 canoes on lake cole

Hiking, hiking, hiking!

Today was a big day for Adventure Village!  The village split up into 3 smaller hiking groups and went out for the whole day to explore Frost Valley and the surrounding area.

The Doubletop crew hiked and hiked and had an awesome time, even though they never did actually summit.  Our farm camp crew successfully hiked up and over Wildcat Mountain, into our East Valley.  After their hike they got a full farm camp tour by Andy, the farm director himself!  Meeting all the animals and exploring the massive garden was definitely a highlight of the day.  Our last crew, but not least, hiked all the way to Table mountain, nearly a 9-mile hike with an amazing view from the top!

Tonight the village is looking forward to participating in another Frost Valley tradition, CHALLENGE NIGHT!  I’m sure challenge night will be immediately followed by snoring and deep sleeping in the village… everyone seemed exhausted after their long hikes today!


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.
