School Trips

We hate to say it, but it’s already August! Our adventurous teachers are probably starting to think about the new year, and probably starting to already think about ways to get your classroom outside while the weather is still nice.

Here’s some ways that you can get your class on a trip to Tree to Tree!

ECOSYSTEMS + HABITATS –

Observe Animals and Food Webs!
Learn about the parts of a tree: What better way to learn about roots, stems, and leaves than by climbing a tree!

PHYSICS –

Learn about force, motion, momentum, energy, and more!

SIMPLE MACHINES –

There are 6 basic simple machines; the lever, the wheel and axle, the inclined plane, the wedge, the pulley, and the screw. You can find many of these throughout the courses!

MATH –

Have you heard of Zipline Barbie? Learn about the Pythagorean Theorem, Angles of Elevation, of the length of a right triangle.  This awesome teacher is sharing lesson plans & classroom materials for Zipline Barbie!

What is T2T?

So…What are you guys?

It’s a question that we get a lot…and rightfully so.  It’s an adventure like you’ve never had before. When walking by, it’s easy to see the happy faces of the people in the trees and hear the cheers and laughter, but until you’ve experienced it for yourself it’s hard to explain.

This season we’re going to treat you to some tips & tricks on how to navigate some of our trickier elements. (Stay tuned, and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram!)  Let’s start at the beginning, and we’ll move among the courses throughout the season!

What’s T2T?

We’re an aerial adventure park.  There’s a series of courses (more on this later) up in the trees, starting at about 15 feet in the air and moving up to almost 40 feet in parts!  You’ll get harnessed up when you arrive, we’ll teach you how to use the equipment, and then you’ll be up on a self guided tour of the trees.  Self guided means that we’ll be there on the ground to help you out and cheer you on, and you can move at your own pace with your group!

You’ll go from obstacle to obstacle (or as we call them – element to element), stopping at platforms built in the trees between the elements to watch your friends, catch your breath, and take in the exhilarating feeling that you’ll surely find.  There’s bridges, swings, ropes, beams, tightropes, and many, many more!

Who can go?

We have a many course options to make sure that almost anyone can join us!  Starting at ages 2-8, the monkey grove is open!  Our zip tour is open for anyone 75 lbs. and up! Anyone ages 7 and up is welcome to the aerial obstacle courses.  Each course is designed specially for the designated age and height ranges, to provide a fun experience for everyone with appropriate levels of challenges, heights, and fun!  Throughout each of the course options, the courses will get higher from the ground and increase in difficulty as you go. Each course ends on the ground, so it’s up to you to decide if you’re ready to conquer the next course, or if you want to call it a day!

Am I safe?

We get it.  Knowing that you’re safe while you’re up in the air, exploring something new, and expanding your comfort zone is a priority.   Providing you with an adventure where you feel safe, welcomed, and supported is one of our highest priorities. We’re proud to feature safety equipment above and beyond the industry requirements.   When you arrive, we’ll help you to get safely secured in our harnesses.

During your orientation session with one of our highly trained staff, you’ll learn how to use the equipment.  Next, you’ll complete our practice course, only a few feet off the ground, under the watchful eye of one of our guides to ensure you’re comfortable with all the equipment!  Ask us all your questions, take your time, and when you’re ready you’ll get started on the courses!

Okay, I’m ready! But come on…give the first course tip!

Well, okay.  Throughout the courses, you’ll notice that some of the elements include logs swinging from ropes. If you ever see these ropes, grab those ropes instead of the cable to steady yourself! Yep, it seems counter-intuitive: the cable stays in one place while the ropes can swing.  Here’s the trick.  Do you remember learning about the pendulum swing?  The same principle applies here.  Hold the cable, and there’s so much farther you can swing.  Hold the ropes and it reduces how far you can swing!

Adventure Village

Have you seen the Pixar Movie “Up”?  In it, a young wilderness explorer named Russel and a 78 year old lovable curmudgeon  named Carl form quite the unlikely duo as they travel to Paradise Falls, with Carl’s house in tow.  There’s countless helium balloons holding the house afloat as take an ultimate adventure to its final destination.

It’s one of my favorite animated movies.  Why, you ask? Because as you watch, you’ll see Carl’s transformation.  At the beginning, he has no sense of adventure left.  His world is grey, and he’s clearly at a loss of what to do next in his life.  Russell enters his life, and helps Carl rediscover adventure, exploring, and all the excitement that life has to offer.

Introducing Tree to Tree’s Adventure Village.  Let’s make adventure a lifestyle!

Adventure Village is the perfect place to introduce our very tiniest visitors, ages 2-8, to adventure!  It was designed and built especially for them to explore, play, and discover their sense of adventure.

No gear is required in Adventure Village.  The entire area is safely enclosed to allow for a safe way to play in the trees.  Your young explorers can test out their balance on wobbly bridges, play on the lookout platforms, or give zip lining a shot on our hand-held zip line!

Over the winter, we gave Adventure Village a little extra TLC.  Our team put cedar roofs on all of the mini tree house huts to add another layer to the adventure.
