3 canoes on lake cole

Something like a phenomenon!

Maine Coast # 1


We always know it’s a great trip when “phenomenal” is the word that our leaders use to describe the group when they call to check in. Juliana used it 3 times in the first five minutes of her check in with us today; “Phenomenal kids”, “Phenomenal place”, and “Phenomenal energy”.

Ben has been entertaining everyone with stand-up comic routines, voices and characters. Thomas, Henry, Eric and Luke have all been incredible at stepping into group leadership roles and everybody has been having incredible fun.

Today was a day of relaxation before the sea kayak portion begins tomorrow. Connor, Henry and Carl hiked up for a great view while the rest of the group hung out at Echo lake swimming and chilling on the beach. Frisbee has been a huge hit and every down second has been various games with the disc.


Great pictures are coming trickling out as Juliana and Kenny are able to find access to sending them to us, so remember to click the link on the side bar to the right for a few more pictures.

Our next update from the Maine Coasters, won’t be until Wednesday evening, but rest assured that life is good for the Maine Coast crew!


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.
