Staff training is in full swing! Over the last week, we have been doing so much to prepare for the summer and we cant wait for campers to come next week! We have been working on teambuilding, formulating our goals for the summer, putting together our trip pack-out procedure, and much more. Right now, our counselors and trip leaders are out on their training hike honing their backcountry skills. Everyone has been having a great time backpacking through the Adirondacks and the Catskills and they are so excited to go hiking with campers in a few weeks!

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.
