Were you one of those kids who drove their parents crazy by behaving like a monkey and climbing up every single place you could get your hands on? Ever fancied trying what it feels like to be an ape and swing through the canopies of trees?
Then you should come along to our outdoor trip of the semester - Go Ape! On sunday, 6th March, the ISC will be heading to the Beecraigs outdoor centre to spend an afternoon climbing and swinging through the trees!
What exactly is it about?
"It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘high-wire forest adventure’. That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the country’s best zip lines. We then kit people out with harnesses, pulleys and karabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!) The result is spectacular. The Go Ape experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all (no pun intended), it’s just great fun."
Promising to be an afternoon to remember, make sure you get your ticket at the ISC lounge (22b Buccleuch Place) on TUESDAY, 22. February at 6:30pm! Tickets will be a mere £35 - this includes all the outdoor fun & convenient transport to and from the outdoor centre! You wouldn't get there more easily and for a cheaper price than with the ISC!
