Treetop Quest

May 28, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I am super proud of my son. He is the most cautious of our bunch. I have been trying talk him into a zipline or try a ropes course for a long time. HERO club at school had an end of year party at Treetop Quest. It is a French company that designs courses in the trees with little removal of existing flora. It is amazing what they have built. Being along my favorite running trail, I have passed it for a few years but I did not want to spend the money and have my son chicken out. This was the prefect opportunity for him to try it along side his friends and teachers.

I was pretty nervous about it. They got to practice before they went off on their own. It is completely up to them to hook themselves up properly throughout the course. There is staff on hand if they get stuck or need help but mostly it is up to him. He has some disabilities that make working clamps like this pretty tough for him. He has been working with occupational therapists for over a year and this has proven that it has helped! He did it with minimal help!

 

He started out on level 2, went and did level one and then did level 2 again. He absolutely loved it. I am planning on going back with our whole crew so we can do even more of the course. I am so very proud of him. This was a scary thing for him to try and he gave it his best shot. It doesn't seem like much of an accomplishment on the outside but with all of the struggles he has been overcoming, this is HUGE!

Treetop Quest is located just outside the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center in Buford not far from Mall of Georgia. I highly recommend it!
