On Thursday, October 20th, Humber students from both North and Lakeshore Campuses participated in the Treetop Trekking Event organized by the Campus Recreation Department. The annual event was held at Treetop Trekking Brampton, on the grounds of the Heart Lake Conservation Area. Although the day was very rainy and cold, it did not stop climbers from heading up the ladders and conquering any fear of heights that they may have had.
Students participated in a 30 minute helmet and harness fitting session and some supervised climbs. Once completing the Orientation Course successfully, students were able to navigate through a number of challenging aerial obstacle courses including balance logs, cable traverses, bridges, Tarzan swings and ziplines at their own pace. Whether an experienced climber or a beginner, there was an aerial course suitable for everyone.
After climbing, students were treated with snacks and beverages, provided by the Campus Recreation Department. All participants received an event t-shirt and transportation options to and from the event.

The next Treetop Trekking Event is planned for fall 2017.
