Session 4 is in Full Swing here in Adventure Village!

As day two comes to an end here at Frost Valley, campers and staff are settling into bed and heading off to sleep after an action packed day.

Today campers came to terms with what it means to be at camp and what it means to be in Adventure Village, with insights and comments that once again left staff in awe. This morning, campers learned a little more about each Mini Trip that we offer in Adventure Village and signed up for their top two choices. Afterwards, campers were  taught many of the village cheers that they will preform as loud as they can at hoopla tomorrow. Hoopla  is a tradition at camp where each village will gather and try out cheer other villages with songs, skits and dances about their own.

Second period the village broke up into tent groups for an activity we call Tent Time. Tent Time is when each tent group gets to spend time hanging out and getting to know the other kids in their tent. This activity creates an environment for better and stronger relationships between campers and their staff.  Additionally, campers get the opportunity to discuss and pick what activities they would like to do. Some examples are: creating new games, short hikes around camp, creeking, archery and going to our nature room to learn more about Frost Valley’s local wild life.

After rest hour and an re-energizing lunch, the village took part in two camp classics: Capture the flag in the woods and Water Front. At Water Front, kids can choose from kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming and playing on the water jungle gym and trampoline.

Day 2 (138)

To end the evening we then enjoyed a wonderful dinner followed by another camp favorite evening game called French Revolution. This is a very popular game with the use of flashlight and some very stealthy campers trying not to be found.

Today has been a great day for both the campers and the staff and they get to do it all over again tomorrow, but for now its time to get some rest.

Goodnight and Happy Trails,

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.
