The Susan Wayne Center of Excellence is home to the DeMarco Adventure Course, a ropes course that combines Adventure-based Counseling and our trauma-informed clinical model, ARC. The course, which offers both high and low ropes elements, is a team-building experience for students and adults alike. For our students, the adventure course is a wonderful opportunity to build self-esteem and experience positive social interactions, both key components of our clinical model. Students get the opportunity to experiment, try new things, take chances, and experience a sense of pride and accomplishment. In addition, the ropes course is also an invaluable training and team-building tool for staff members, caregivers, community providers, and organizations.
