About Go Ape

At Go Ape, they know that pretty much everything is better outside, and that extends to school trips – no matter the weather!

There have been numerous studies into the benefits of outdoor experiences positively impacting a young person’s development. Including improvements to mental health and well-being, deepening nature connection, and promoting more inclusive and engaging learning.

A Go Ape school trip enables self-discovery, problem-solving, teamwork, better communication and confidence building opportunities. 

With age-appropriate activities for 4-16-year-olds, including ground-based games, a trip to Go Ape will live long in the memory – of students and teachers alike.
