Vermont Voyager – Sailing has Begun!

The climbing and biking/hiking for both groups Thursday and Friday went great.  Our second group  biked a little less, but were excited about reaching the summit of Camel’s Hump.  Our climbers loved playing around on the cliffs and trying out some new skill sets. 

Yesterday, the groups went to Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream factory and a small Cabot Cheese shop for their free day.  In the afternoon they went to a local fair/market taking place in town.  Back at the campground Ultimate Frisbee remains the best activity – and even other camps staying at the campground are starting to join in!

Today started the first day of sailing for our crew.  Many campers realized it’s a lot harder than it looks, and it’s a lot more work!  The weather was great for the crew, and they partnered up to start their sailing lessons.   The group is excited to try again tomorrow and to progress on the skills they started learning today.

And that’s it for now from Vermont.  We’ll blog again on Wednesday.  Write to y’all then!


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.
