Tree Top Builders, a custom tree house building company, volunteered at the Camp at Old Mill to build a tree house, zip line, and some cabling for a low elements challenge course.
The Camp at Old Mill, near Coatesville, PA, is a haven for Coatesville’s kids to retreat to year round. Tree Top Builders founder, Dan Wright, volunteered Tree Top’s services to build a professional quality tree house for the camp. The camp intends to use the tree house for camp outs and as a zip line launch platform. The challenge course will be for group building activities.
The main 12’x16’ tree house platform is on the bank of the Brandywine River and is 12 feet high in two hickory trees. The zip line launches off a 17 foot high launch pad and zips nearly 200’ to another tree. The challenge course includes a tire traverse, a wild woozy, and other low ropes elements for group activities.
Tree Top Builders regularly volunteers its services to non-profit organizations such as non-profit youth camps and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Custom tree houses are exclusive projects, so part of the company’s vision is to put kids in tree houses that otherwise wouldn’t have access to one in their own yard.
