Share your adventure stories and win this summer!

KIds Writing Competition
Go Ape’s motto has always been the same ever since that sunny day back in 2001 when Tris and Becs opened the leafy forest doors to our very first course.

Do you know what that motto is?

Creating adventures, encouraging others to live life more adventurously

Ten points if you got it!

It’s our motto and mission to encourage the world (yes, the world) to live life more adventurously through our forest-themed activities. Whether you’re rolling around on a bunch of Segways or swinging from tree to tree, we want to open your minds and eyes to the wonderfully exciting world of outdoor adventure.

Now, it’s your turn to inspire:

Mini Tarzans, we’ve a favour to ask. We think we’re doing a pretty good job of inspiring adventure (if we say so ourselves), but we want you to help us out and inspire others, too!

This is a call for all kids aged 4-12! Monkeys, we want you to pen a story about an awesome adventure you’ve had. The story needs to be 100-500 words and there are no rules whatsoever, as long as it’s really adventurous and has the potential to inspire the Go Ape Tribe and anyone else who reads it!

It could be real-life story or completely made up, it’s your choice. It just needs to be adventure-filled. So get those creative juices flowing and let your imagination run wild!

What’s in it for you? Well, quite a lot actually! If you win, you can choose from a school trip for your whole class or a treetop party for you and your pri-mates! Oh, we’re also going to be giving away stacks of adventure books!

We’ll be awarding these awesome prizes to nine lucky winners, in categories including best fiction author, best non-fiction author, best character, and best use of language. Chief Gorillas Tris and Becs will also be picking their favourite entry.

Already have an idea of what you’re going to write? Don’t wait around as time’s ticking! You’ve got until midnight, 22nd June to submit your entry, either through a form on our website here or by scanning a paper copy to [email protected], with the subject line ‘Writing competition’.

Good luck to all you little monkeys taking part and thanks for helping the Go Ape Tribe to inspire adventure among the masses!
