3 canoes on lake cole

Vermont Voyager

The final day of sailing was “so EPIC.”  The morning was spent “sailing on land” as the weather proved to be windy and too dangerous to sail.  The group was begging to go on out one last time, and the sailing instructors felt that the group was capable of handling the afternoon conditions.  They hopped into a different type of boat than what they had been using and did amazing! All the instructors were singing their praising and telling the group how well they did with the conditions and the lessons they had learned. 

After that, they spent two days biking.  The first day of biking was great.  They biked the Burlington Bike Path along Lake Champlain, and on the way back stopped at one of the lifeguarded beaches to swim for a bit before returning the bikes for the day.  The second day of biking wasn’t quite as epic.  Although it was a very scenic route with beautiful views, it was also very crowded, so the group decided to do a half day of biking instead of the full day.  The Ben & Jerry’s tour was awesome, and the Cabot Cheese factory was also fun. 

Overall the group loves playing Frisbee and waffle ball, and they all comment on the great friends they have made!

[Editors note: thanks for you patience in waiting for this entry, I know it’s a few days late!!]


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.
