Go Ape Step Up Their Team Building Game with BlueSky in a Bag
Go Ape is the UK’s number one forest adventure found in 31 of the UK's most breath taking locations. Days out at Go Ape are about living life more adventurously, having fun, and spending time with friends.
Working with BlueSky Experiences, Go Ape sought to deliver a solution to offer a more rounded Team Building service to allow them to engage more effectively with the rising number of corporate enquiries they were receiving.
The BlueSky Approach
After consideration, Go Ape took the decision to invest in BlueSky in a Bag and BlueSky Team Solutions, to support the delivery of Team Building days at 10 of their sites across the UK, from Bournemouth to Cannock.
In the Spring of 2017, Go Ape and James England, Managing Director of BlueSky Experiences rolled out the new team building programme to their sales, marketing, and operational teams at Thetford, as part of the onboarding process. The sales and marketing teams really enjoyed taking part in the team building programme and the operational teams equally enjoy delivering these to their clients. The games they enjoy the most are Tarp Flip, Changing Places, and Synchronicity, to name just a few! “The games are so simple, but are extremely effective in getting teams to really think, and get them working together instantly to problem solve.”
Since June 2017, Go Ape have delivered added value to their existing team building programmes for more than 47 clients at a range of their UK sites using BlueSky in a Bag and BlueSky Team Solutions. BlueSky in a Bag is an eye catching and colourful, easy to use bag, consisting of 18 unique activities contained in waterproof envelopes, with laminated instruction cards ideal for use on picnic benches or grass areas: the type of spaces Go Ape is abundant in. In addition to this, BlueSky Team Solutions gives the corporate client the opportunity to fully experience team building activities which support the development of communication and problem solving skills with activities on the ground, as well as the development of trust in support across their team, in the tree top adventure.
Go Ape plan to roll this programme out to more of their sites across the UK. “The return on investment has been very quick!” As well as client days, Go Ape use BlueSky in a Bag for recruitment and internal staff training.
