FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Go Ape Treetop Junior Course comes to Bemis Woods

A Family Inclusive Extension to the current Treetop Adventure to Open July 1

WESTERN SPRINGS (June 23, 2017) – The Forest Preserves of Cook County and officials with Go Ape – the nation’s premier Treetop Adventure company – have announced the addition of a Treetop Junior course to its already popular course at Bemis Woods. Opening Saturday, July 1, younger residents aged 4+ and visitors will have the chance to climb rope ladders and zoom down zip lines. This is Go Ape’s sixth Treetop Junior Zip line course and a welcome addition to the robust amenities available to families in Bemis Woods.

“The Go Ape Treetop Adventure course has proven to be an incredibly popular attraction for the Forest Preserves,” said Arnold Randall, General Superintendent of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. “The new junior course will expand the adventure to younger age groups, allowing more families, youth organizations and groups to experience all of the unique natural resources Bemis Woods offers, and hopefully inspire visitors to learn more about the local habitat surrounding them.”

Go Ape’s Treetop Junior course is a fun-filled experience of tree-to-tree crossings, including more than 18 obstacles and two zip lines 20 feet above the ground. The safety systems ensure that participants stay attached the entire time they are on the course. Children under six must be accompanied on the course by an adult, while children ages 6 – 15 must be supervised by an adult either accompanying them on the course or from below on the ground.

“We’re thrilled to open a Junior course in Bemis Woods that can engage entire families and further support our mission to inspire everyone live life adventurously,” says Go Ape Managing Director Chris Swallow. “Parents will really enjoy seeing their child’s confidence grow as they conquer the course’s obstacles and the sense of accomplishment once they’ve finished.”
