3 canoes on lake cole

Ontario Almost Out of the Woods!

Ontario Outback called in today to give a quick update!  The group is doing well so far.  A long day on Sunday paddling and portaging led to a more relaxing day yesterday.  After paddling several miles, everyone napped, fished, read and hung out.  One of the best parts of the trip so far: hiking to the top of Silver peak and physically seeing all of the lakes the group has paddled! 

Nadav: diligently fishing and catching a lot! He caught an absolute “ginormous” fish, and then he caught a bate fish, which he kept on his line..at least until the seagull swooped down and decided it was lunch time!

Ryan: doing well, steps up to help the group out and really proud that he carried his own canoe portaging!

Walter: absolute sponge, soaking up everything and opening up to the group well

Alex: challenging himself and really pushing through the tougher spots.  Trying new things and loves cooking, fishing and the campfire


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.
