Cloe Amara/Treetop Quest
Cloe Amara is a Park Manager with Treetop Quest, an outdoor recreational attraction located in Buford at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, only minutes away from the Mall of Georgia. The Treetop Obstacle Course features 70 obstacles, 20 zip-lines and 6 different levels.
One of their courses is adapted to children 4 to 6 years old, and starting at 7 years old, children are taught how to manage their gear and lead themselves through courses from level 1 (easy) to level 5 (very challenging) at their own pace. This self-guided activity provides excellent avenues for self-confidence, psycho-motor skills, anxiety management and environmental awareness. Treetop Quest is open every weekend from March through Thanksgiving, plus every day during the Summer, and they host groups (schools, Scouts, Businesses, Churches, Birthday Parties, etc…) throughout the year.
