Georgia’s largest trampoline and aerial adventure park strives to support local organizations.
Looking for new ways to stay active and have fun? Wondering how you can give back to your community with limited time and money to spend? Airborne Canton’s Jump to Serve program is going to pair those two goals. We’ll soon be your new, favorite way to give back and have fun at the same time.
Each month, our team selects and partners with an organization committed to bettering the lives within our local community or around the globe. Airborne will donate a percentage of the profits each month to the chosen organization.
We have two goals with Jump To Serve. First, we want to share what we have been blessed with and it is so important to help others in the community succeed. Often times these organizations rely on donations, grants, and fundraising to operate. Second, we want to inform our customers and community about these organizations and how they can partner, volunteer, or contribute to their missions. Much of the work being done is difficult and challenging, but also very rewarding. We might encourage someone to do great things in the service of others!
The Jump to SERVE program is a special program that has been on our hearts since before the park even opened. We can’t begin to explain how appreciative we are of how each organization selflessly serves this community. We love this community and how effortlessly it comes together to support those in need.
There have been two successful Jump to Serve months so far in 2019:
Goshen Valley – March was the first Jump to Serve month and Goshen Valley was our first organization. At Goshen Homes, they believe siblings are better together. They recruit, train, license, and support foster families working with sibling groups in and around Cherokee County. Goshen Homes is currently seeking new foster families willing to work with sibling groups to meet the rising needs of foster children in this community. The donated by Jump to Serve went to help Goshen fund the recruitment, training, and licensing of new foster families in order to meet the needs of more vulnerable sibling groups in foster care. We’re thrilled we could support them!
Cherokee Family Violence Center – April’s Jump to Serve organization envisions a world where intimate partner violence is a distant memory and healthy relationships prosper. The Cherokee Family Violence Center (CFVC) enhances the safety of those impacted by intimate partner violence through services that empower victims while advocating for a community standard of zero tolerance for violence in the home. There are several ways you can support CFVC and also several ways you can turn to them for help if you need it, including a 24-hour crisis hotline. We’re honored to support such an important cause.
We’ll keep you updated on Airborne’s Facebook page as to who May’s partner is going to be. Until then, come Jump To Serve!
Airborne Canton is pleased to announce that we’ve opened part of our park up to Zenit Gymnastics out of Canton! Zenit moved out of their old location just up the street and into an enormous expanded space inside our facility. They officially started offering classes the first week of April!

Here at Airborne Canton, we understand the importance of a place where teenagers can hang out. A “cool” place that’s approved by Mom and Dad. For that reason, we started our monthly Flight Club, a once-a-month opportunity for teenagers in and around Cherokee County to meet and hang out.
Why is it called Flight Club?
The first rule of Flight Club? (We’re kidding!) Truthfully? We liked the name! We tried to come up with something catchy enough for our brand, that would also appeal to teenagers.
What do Airborne’s Flight Club Teen Nights Offer?
When creating our teen nights, we had a few specific goals in mind:
A Place for Live Music: At each Flight Club event, we’ll have rotating music and themes to keep things interesting for the teens who attend. The last thing we want is an event that’s repetitive and boring.
A Place to Connect and Inspire: Our goal is to offer a place for teens to connect with each other, and in some cases, inspire each other. So much can happen in an environment that feels safe and welcoming–and we feel very strongly about that.
A Safe Space with Parents in Mind: Here in Cherokee County, there aren’t very many places for teenagers to go and hang out–face to face. We believe in human connection and wanted to provide a safe, clean place to nurture that.
