Hi! My name is Dave Schneiderbeck, and I will be leading this years Wilderness Challenge program at Great Hollow. I’m 38, and have lived in the area since 1982, first in New Fairfield, and after college, Sherman. I currently own and have run Rizzos Garage in the center of Sherman for the past eleven years.
Besides having played outside in the woods most of life, I am also an accomplished mountain bike racer, rock climber, swimmer, and canoeist. I have also skydived, and I am a certified scuba diver and Medical Response Technician. I also am a board member and trail steward of the Nairomi Land Trust . I completed an Outward Bound program as an adolescent in the Adirondack Mountains, which to this day remains on of the greatest accomplishments of my life. I hope to instill some of the lessons I picked up there in your children, while having a good time as well!
