3 canoes on lake cole

Mini-trips are almost here!

AdVill’s overnight last night was good practice for what’s soon to come on mini-trips.  And it went very well!  The campers said the sunset and then the stars were absolutely beautiful last night and enjoyed sleeping outside after a long day of hiking.

Today was more of a relaxed day, the morning was spent resting, cleaning up the gear from the overnight, and taking long showers!

Later, some campers practiced yoga and learned some new poses with one of our very own AdVill counselors.  Others got to explore and learn about the pond (and catch and play with lots of critters!) It was another hot day, so everyone was very excited for waterfront and playing in the creek.

AdVill was already buzzing with excitement for the mini-trips, and tonight is also the camp dance! I’m sure everyone will have a blast singing and dancing with friends before heading off into the woods. Check back for pictures, they will be up later tonight.



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.
