Unforgettable Adventurous School Trips
What was the best school trip you went on as a kid?
Perhaps it was when you explored ancient ruins, or learned all the different species of wildlife at a nature reserve. Or it could have been the time you played king or queen for the day at a medieval castle, or when you hit the slopes with your classmates on a weekend ski trip.
The school trips we remember are the ones that involved adventure in some form. They involved fun we enjoyed ourselves, we saw new sights and experienced new things. And that's why we believe Go Ape is perfect for a school trip; kids get to have fun with their classmates whilst learning a thing or two at the same time!
School trips at Go Ape are educational AND adventurous.
Heading up into the tree tops, kids will get to unleash their inner Tarzans. They'll clamber across nets, wobble across bridges, leap off platforms and whizz down zip wires and they'll do so with their best pals by their side (or, rather, standing on the platform giving them moral support).
A Go Ape adventure is a chance for kids to get out of the classroom and into the great outdoors. It's a chance for them to connect with nature, to get some fresh air in their lungs and to enjoy this beautiful springtime weather!
You might be wondering how a Tree Top Junior experience can be educational. Well, when kids are up in the trees tackling a variety of obstacles together, this is helping to improve skills such as communication and collaboration between one another. And skills such as these are important when it comes to classroom cohesion.
Perhaps more importantly, a trip to Go Ape can be a great confidence-booster for kids.
From our experience, most kids arrive to us feeling a little apprehensive (most adults do, too!), but all leave with huge grins on their faces. It's a scary thing, moving skyward with just a harness to hold you in place, but it won't be long until kids (quite literally) get into the swing of things. A Tree Top Junior course enables them to discover their true potential you can expect at least half of your class to yell "I did it! as they whizz down the final zip wire!
A Go Ape adventure also helps to promote a healthy lifestyle and teaches kids all about the wonders of the great outdoors. We don't want kids to become a generation of Xbox addicts; we want to open their eyes to the wonders of nature and inspire them to get out there and live life adventurously!
Sticking on the educational theme, with the help of practising teachers we've put together a range of imaginative and stimulating learning resources which fall in-line with the National Curriculum. Our school packs feature ideas for in and out of the classroom, and ideas for how you can make the most of your Go Ape adventure.
