Shrewsbury – Shrewsbury High School's new outdoor zip line and ropes course was host to the Get Fit Family Climbing Adventure Sept. 21. Students in grades 9-12 and their families gathered in the morning to engage in a variety of outdoor adventure elements. Students climbed up utility poles and walked across wires while instructors belayed below.

The activity is a part of the Get Fit program to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. Almost 40 people attended the event to participate in the fun. Shrewsbury High School's rope course features three climbing elements: a zip line, Burma Bridge (a wire walk), and a ropes course where climbers must navigate onto various wooden platforms up in the trees.
