Based in Wakefield, MA, DET has performed at venues all over the country, including military bases, colleges and elementary and secondary schools.

Adventures in Respect is an anti-bullying program developed by the Hockomock Area YMCA (Foxboro, MA). The program offers a unique approach to team building through problem solving activities and team oriented challenges. Adventures in Respect reaches 6,500 campers in 15 towns near the Hockomock Area YMCA. Although currently a camp program, the hope is that it can someday serve as a model in local schools.
