Local charities join Go Ape for the launch of Salcey Forest location

On the 27th April 2024, Go Ape invited local charities Peak Empower and Youth Engagement, as well as local community members for the official launch of their brand-new location. Salcey Forest is the 37th location in the Go Ape family tree and has two exciting high ropes experiences which are perfect for everyone over 1m tall.

Peak Empower and Youth Engagement facilitate positive activities and adventurous trips to improve well-being, confidence, and self-esteem in young people, particularly supporting those who are isolated or marginalised.

South Northants Youth Engagement Trustee and Brackley Mayor, Councillor Sue Sharps, said, “SNYE is a volunteer led youth charity, which provides youth clubs, projects and events for children and young people in their local communities. The Go Ape launch was a brilliant day for our Youth Council members from Towcester and Brackley, hosted at their beautiful new Salcey Forest location.

Thrills and skills were provided by their excellent team who supported our young people throughout their adventurous experiences. Everyone had great fun and learnt a lot about working together as a team as they conquered the tree tops. They all look forward to returning soon to experience it all over again!”

Go Ape Salcey Forest Site Manager, Callum O’Connell, said, “A lot of hard work has gone in to creating Go Ape Salcey Forest and it is fantastic to be able to share our adventures with the wider community.”

The official launch day truly showed off Salcey Forest, and everyone had a great time on their adventures, especially the youth groups. Local officials, also attended to cut the ribbon, show their support and even experience an adventure in the tree tops for themselves. Salcey Forest has so much to keep the whole family entertained! There are play parks, picturesque and accessible footpaths, bike trails and the onsite café to refuel after your day of adventure.
