Learning the ROPES: NORTH ADAMS -- A crowd of onlookers gathered as a 11-year-old Chloe Martel perched on a wooden ledge 55 feet above them. Suddenly, she jumped into the air, soaring over their heads as she demonstrated the zip-line at the Northern Berkshire ROPES Summer Program on Friday.
A few seconds later, after completing her 250-foot descent, Chloe was beaming while the group of parents and family members turned their attention to another demonstration.
Prior to the demonstration of elements in the Gerald Downing Ropes Course within Historic Valley Campground, about 100 campers and mentors -- previous campers who now serve as helpers -- were honored with a graduation ceremony at the campground pavilion.
