Dear Journal,

I don’t know if I am suppose to tell you or not, but Project X went off without a hitch.  I mean, at least I think it did!  Now that I am in Adventure Village, I have a new name and have drank the all natural tea that has been a tradition in Sequoia for decades…  Oops, I am not suppose to tell you that.

This morning we did Project Adventure.  Don’t worry, its not part of Project X.  We don’t do Project X around the rest of camp, as they know nothing of its X-treme nature…  Oops, once again I said too much.  Project Adventure is all about team-building and getting to know each other, so we can complete the X and our mini-trips.  We are going to find out which trip we are going on in the next few days and I can’t wait!

Adventure Village 058

This afternoon, we got a choice of the climbing tower or going on a hike to Devil’s Hole.  I went on the hike.  I came back really muddy.  The climbers said the tower is wicked sweet.  I am going to save it for later this week.  Okay, talk to you later.  I am being called for tonight’s activity.  I can’t wait to hear what it is….

P.S.  I forgot to talk about the weather.  Sorry.  It was really sunny, then cloudy, then sunny, then cloudy, then sunny.  Okay you get the point.  At least it was sunny for our swim test.

P.S.S. The water is really cold, but fun.

Yup, it's PA time..

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.
