Open year-round, weather permitting, Pocono TreeVentures offers a new perspective, literally. On the advanced course, the high point offers views from 30 feet off the ground. “With a team-building curriculum that focuses on the special attraction of climbing from tree to tree while seeing the world from a bird’s-eye view, Pocono TreeVentures is ideal for group outings,” says Gina Bertucci, vice president of marketing for Bushkill Group Inc. Guests choose which course(s) to use and how far up they’ll go on tree platforms. The platforms are connected by challenging “bridges,” constructed with swaying ropes and cables. As the courses increase in difficulty, the bridges offer less support (and more exhilaration) with tightropes, swinging wood steps and the like. The aerial ropes courses and zip lines are meant for anyone (age 7 and up) who enjoys climbing. If you’re ready to shake things up, plan your next outing or corporate event at Pocono TreeVentures.
Over the years, any corporate event planner can admit to spending countless hours researching the perfect venue or vendors for their gatherings. After attending or hosting hundreds of events, New York-based Daphne Hoppenot was no stranger to this research and was frustrated by its repetitive nature. However, it was planning her wedding in 2018 that pushed her to realize the lack of resources in the corporate events market compared to the wedding industry, and set out to see if other meetings and events professionals were struggling with the same problem.
