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.
