Foundations Asheville’s COVID-Safe Ziplining Excursion Was a Success
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Foundation Asheville’s young adults headed out to Navitat for a fun day of ziplining. Located just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Navitat offers tree-based canopy adventures and ziplining tours that are engaging and safe. “We were really impressed by their COVID safety measures,” says Adam Ray, Director of Business Development & Programming at Foundations. “All students wore masks and went through Navitat’s screening process before entering the park.”
Over the past few months, the Foundations Asheville team has been making efforts to find COVID-safe activities for students to participate in. This has been really helpful for morale and has helped their students continue to build hobbies, interests, and community.
“The Navitat trip was a great hit amongst our students,” says Adam. “It has been so important for our young adults to spend time in nature and engage in activities that help them feel stimulated during the pandemic. We are really looking forward to our next excursions and will definitely continue to prioritize this type of programming for our students.”
