White Mountain Kayak and Climb- Update

These six guys certain know how to have a great time you can tell by the smile of their smiles! They finished up with almost four full days of kayaking on the Saco River in the heart of White Mountain National Forest.  I hear that they all really took to white water kayaking and were out paddling their counselors!  Needless to say they had a really great time.

On their day off this week the group went on an epic nine mile hike in White Mountain National Forest. They hiked up the Falling Water trail to Franconia Ridge Trail. They summitted three high peaks. The highest, Mt. Lafayette, standing at a towering 5249 feet!

It was really great to see these guys to day. Hopefully we’ll see a couple of them as AITs next summer!


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.
