The high ropes course, which is a series of initiatives placed 40-60 feet from the ground, will be used by various student groups, such as athletic teams and Adirondack Adventure participants. The community will also have access to the course.
Mari Clampitt, assistant director of Hamilton's Annual Fund, said the 96 percent participation rate is a record for the senior gift campaign, which was initiated in 1982. It betters the old mark of 95.5 percent, set last year. She praised Senior Gift Chair Tabitha Bowling of Johnson City, N.Y. and the 10 seniors who served as vice-chairs during the campaign.
