3 canoes on lake cole

Water may be low, but AdVill spirits are high!

Today, instead of breaking out into their regular activity periods, Adventure Village decided to divide and conquer some amazing half-day hikes all around Frost Valley’s property.  One group got to cool down for a while by the mist of High Falls, and then explore in and around a small rock formation known as “The Bear Cave.”   Another group got to explore our own model forest.  Our last group hikes up the mountain a bit to visit the Line Shack.

After all that hiking the village settled in for a much needed rest hour before lunch.  After lunch, we were lucky enough to play a game called Popcorn King, brought to us all the way from Armenia.  Popcorn King is a team building game that tests campers’ wits, fire building skills, and speed.

This evening everyone packed up and headed out to a favorite site called Project X, where we enjoyed an old fashioned campfire, exchanged stories, and prepared a classic meal of pita pizzas.


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.
