The Go Ape motto has been the same since day dot: to encourage others to live life adventurously.
From families to friends to work tribes, we want to inspire adventure among the masses – we want to start an adventure revolution!
We know that to make adventure accessible to all, we need to make our adventures affordable for all. That’s why we offer tree-mendous forest adventures for a price that won’t break the bank. Any company, large or small, can enjoy the wonders of the woodland at Go Ape, swinging through the trees en-masse just as Tarzan would.
We’re always going on about how regular team building trips are the key to forming happy, super-motivated tribes (especially when those trips take place in the forest). So, it’s only right that we practice what we preach!
Of course, we don’t hold Go Ape team building trips at Go Ape. While we’ll never get bored of our canopy escapades, we like to mix things up a little. So, can you guess what we did for our last team building trip on a budget?
If only you could see the looks on our tribe’s faces when we were all handed our invitations. Hosted by our MD, the Go Ape garden party promised to be a day of games, giggles and getting to know one another even better!
And it certainly delivered. Not as au fait with floor-level activities, we started off with a few rounds of rounders (and unearthed competitive streaks in many a member of the Go Ape tribe). That worked up a real sweat, so we got to cool down in the coolest way we could…by taking a dip in the lake! Never experienced wild swimming? We highly recommend it!
As soon as we dried off it was time for lunch and in homage to our Go Ape offering, we were treated to a hearty BBQ. We must admit, we’re always a little envious when tribes get to tuck into a table full of tasty, grilled grub, so we were chuffed that we finally got to indulge!
Fuelled by our mighty feast, the afternoon consisted of even more activities. We went to war with one another on an inflatable gladiator ring and raced on a blow-up bungee run to see who could reach the furthest point before they were catapulted back to the beginning (one of our fave activities of the day, by far).
The more humble activities on offer were large chess and draughts and a range of card games – perfect for later in the afternoon when we were feeling slightly subdued!
The Go Ape garden party was the perfect team day out; a day where we could let our hair down, meet new members of the tribe and ultimately, have lots of fun! Which is what team building should be all about, right?
