A Western North Carolina middle school took its students on a tree top adventure that helped them face their fears and make new friends.

For two hours, Reynolds Middle School students gathered at the Adventure Center of Asheville, where the sixth-graders navigated several levels of obstacle courses. The higher the students went, the harder the challenges got.

Many of the students had to rely on one another for encouragement as they tested their limits high above the ground.

"If we get stuck on it, we have one of our friends to help us, like, get off the course," Mariah said.

"It is a lot about teamwork because, over there, a kid was doing the zipline and he got stuck. So, I pulled him back and he redid it and he made it that time," Gavin said.

Reynolds has been taking sixth-graders to the Adventure Center for the last few years. The school said it helps the students, who come from different area elementary schools, get to know each other better.
